The democratization of 80Plus Platinum allows multiple manufacturers to provide fanless power supplies, that is to say completely silent. Chieftec announces the GPS-500C capable of simply cooling itself with the airflow from the case.
ATX 2.3 compatible, the GPS-500C is 80Plus Platinum certified. Obtaining the highest distinction assures maximum efficiency which minimizes heat loss and thus lower cooling requirements. On this point, the manufacture provides a fanless design which “block cap” is an imposing radiator to dissipate the excess heat. The cable management is semi-modular since the two beams dedicated to the feeding of the board are secured to the PSU.
Its price should be around €130.
