The Enermax Digifanless 550W PSU is completely modular and as the name implies there is no fan to be found in this PSU. Instead large heatsinks take up most of the room inside the casing, with a mix of Nippon Chemi-con, Enesol and DuraTech capacitors with the PFC and power components hidden under those heatsinks. [H]ard|OCP's testing proved that the 80 PLUS Platinum rating that Enermax claims for this PSU is well deserved with efficiency over 90% in testing. [H] was more than impressed with the overall build quality and performance of this heatsink, however the MSRP is significantly higher than the competitions which was why this PSU was left holding Silver. It is not for sale yet here in North America so there is still a chance that a price reduction could make this PSU very attractive for those looking for a silent PC build.
"Enermax joins the ranks of the fanless computer power supply builders. These are of course a must-have for those enthusiasts looking for a zero noise profile computer build. Many times these sorts of builds of course suffer from very hot environments, so fanless PSUs are a perfect fit for our testing criteria."
