I'd like to thank Elaine of Coolmax for providing us with the Fanless Switching Power Supply for review.
One of the newer trends for computer enthusiasts nowadays is to build a silent computer system. This can involve using larger fans at lower rpms to get the same potential as the smaller fans. Videocards can now be outfitted with fanless heatsinks with heatpipes technology, etc.
One potential source of noise that hasn't been dealt with comes from the power supply. That is till now. Coolmax has stepped up to the plate with their new Fanless Switching Power Supply. This power supply operates completely silent with absolutely no fans.
The Fanless Switching Power Supply is compatible with all ATX motherboards. It is also compatible with all leading processors including Pentium III, 4 and AMD AthonXP. The unit is available in 300, 350, 400, and 480 Watts.
We will be reviewing the 300 Watt model.
The way Coolmax gets away with not using any fans in it's power supply comes from the use of heatsinks and small air slits found all over the power supply enclosure.
