Cooling and Noise Levels
|Sound Pressure Level|
Since there is no fan, there's not much point in measuring sound pressure levels, but what about noise from the electronics? There is nothing, no matter if there is a PC case between our ears and the PSU or not. No coil is singing, no capacitor is squealing, and we've got a dead silent PSU! Of course, we can't say whether the CPU, GPU, and motherboards will be up to the same task. Even conventional hard drives are "loud" by comparison, so silence enthusiasts will probably want to go the SSD route just to be sure.

The difference between the ambient and the exhaust temperature is very low. We've tested the power supply with a room temperatur of 25 °C.
