Thermaltake’s latest Fanless Solutions, including Fanless 103 for CPU cooling, Fanless Power Supply Unit and Fanless VGA allows heat to be transferred effectively away from the source by utilizing Heatpipe Technology and dissipated through the high-density fins. Since there are no moving parts with these solutions, user can finally enjoy the silence of 0dba and performance achieved utilizing Heatpipe technology.

In order for users to truly benefit from a noiseless power supply unit, the unit itself cannot be restricted in terms of power output, reliability and thermal dissipation capability. Fanless PSU is capable of providing 350 watts of true power.

To achieve power output of this magnitude, Thermaltake utilized five copper heat pipes that are 6mm in diameter. Heat pipes permit heat to be transferred from internal aluminum chassis to external. Heat pipes that are extruding out of the chassis are soldered with high-density copper fins for heat dissipation.

The unique design, overall layout and the use of copper heat sink & heat pipes makes this the most dependable noiseless power supply available today.


For more info you can check out ThermalTake's website. While its a little unfortunate that its only 350watts, having a completely fanless power supply is pretty badass, considering some of us have to sit right next to our machines. And if you have a power supply fan, cpu fan, video fan, chipset fan, 4 (or more) case fans, all screaming along, every little bit helps!

Sounds good :) Oh, a punny!

I actually don't hear my Enermax PSU fan over the noise of my Koolance fans when they are on high.

my PSU is among the loudest in my machine, so I'd be very interested, other than the fact that I want to upgrade, but I need more than just 350w (since when I do upgrade it'll be two extra hard drives, a new vid card (and those new ones suck up a lot of juice), and, if I can talk myself into it, some kind of lighting scheme). So yeah, when they come out with a 480w version, then I'll be on that like Kobe on an unwilling teenager. (the basketball star, not the city in Japan)

edit: if anyone finds a review of this product anytime soon, please post it here, I'd love to see.

Not strong enough, probably cook itself in the real world. I like Pc Power 510 Deluxe, quiet and manly enough for my computers. All other Power Supplies are posers and gimmicky.

It's not enough wattage and what temp was the output tested at? Today's builds need alot of reserve power. I guess this power supply is ok for some but a weak PS willl cause much misery without showing itsef as the culprit. Check the rails at working temp to see what's going on.

But with the external fins, you can drop a chunk of ice on the heatsink just before your heavy gaming sessions :lol:

That power supply running a XP 2500+ Mobile with a passive heatsink, a DVD/CD Combo drive and one or two hard drives would be perfect in an office enviroment. Most people here like big complex powerful computers, we however are the small minoritity. Most users want a quiet, small out of the way machine that uses little desk space and does the usual Office app, net surfing, Outlook and online banking... This PS would kick ass for that!

Check the rails at working temp to see what's going on.

Does this refer to the voltages reported in Core centre (or other motherboard monitoring software)?

Get a voltmeter at Radio shack and check at the connections.
Then read the specs on the side to compare. Picky I know but the
Devil is in the details, Power supplies and memory chips, spend high.
