Silverstone's New NightJar 500W Silent PSU, For Silent Types.

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅04.08.2011 17:32:16




The Silverstone ST50NF is the third member of Silverstone's Nightjar range of silent non-modular PSU's, suited primarily for fanless and HTPC configurations. At a rating of 500W however it has enough juice to drive higher power components than are usually seen in this sort of scenario, including mid-tier GFX cards and overclocked CPU's. It also features other key ingredients you'd expect in a high-quality PSU: single +12V rail, multiple PCI-E plugs, high (80+ Bronze) efficiency, full complement of safety features and more. Trumped as "a great choice for mission-critical systems that need to operate in noiseless or dusty environments", the ST50NF will be a considered purchase when it hits UK retailers at an expected ~100 price point. Surely one to keep an eye on for an ultra-quiet gaming rig too.
