Under the Hood

Here are a couple pictures showing the layout and components inside the Nightjar 500W fanless power supply. SilverStone is once again using Seventeam as the OEM for the ST50NF although SilverStone continues to take the design lead on the Nightjar power supplies.


Once the large external heatsink is removed, we can see the internal layout. The top surfaces of the internal heatsinks are fitted with thermal pads to conduct heat into the external heatsink when attached. The four primary capacitors are made by Nippon Chemi-Con and rated for 150uF, 450V and 105°C each, with a combination of solid polymer and electrolytic caps also made by Nippon Chemi-Con populating the secondary side. The overall layout, build quality and component selection looks very good.
