At CeBIT 2012 we took a look around at FSP's showcase and saw their new AURUM 80 PLUS Gold rated power supplies. A line up that caters for silence lovers, with the AURUM Xilenser to the power hungry enthusiast with the AURUM Pro. The AURUM family feature a 5 year warranty, modular low profile cables and a unique rugged 'granite-touch' texture which help them stand out in a competitive market. To further their power cause, they were also displaying the AURUM 92+, which is an 80 PLUS Platinum variant, distinguished by the gold colour being replaced by silver.

The AURUM Xilenser series is a 0dB, fanless design that comes in 400W and 500W outputs. Aside from the gorgeous exterior, there is some serious electrickery happening on the inside too, allowing the AURUM Xilenser power supplies to achieve the 80 PLUS Gold certificate, with little wasted energy, there is little heat generated which removes the need for heftin' heatsinks to aid in cooling the PSU.

Sitting at the top end of the AURUM spectrum is the AURUM Pro. Available in 850W, 1000W and 1200W models that use a dual transformer matrix to power a high current single 12V rail which can deliver up to 100A, should be able to satisfy the power needs of the most power hungry setups.
