Antec Phantom 500w Silent PSU



The following information has been shamelessly copied from Antec's website:

* ATX12V version 2.01 compliant with 24-and-20-pin adapter connector with detachable 4-pin section for 20-pin for backward compatibility with older motherboards
* Dual +12V outputs, with dedicated circuits to isolate the CPU power line from peripherals.
* Hybrid fan design
* Exceptional power efficiency up to 85% (US version) at full load
* 4 Serial ATA power connectors
* PCI-E graphic card power connector
* Fanless operation for absolutely silent computing. Three user selectable fan kick-in points for quiet computing under higher loads: 40, 47.5, or 55 degrees C.
* Specially designed internal heatsinks and chassis heatsink for maximum heat dissipation
* ATX12V v2.0 compliance and ultra-high-efficiency design (up to 82%) allows Phantom to generate up to 70% less heat and consume 25% less power than standard PSU's saving you money on your electric bill
* Power Factor value greater than 90% (EU only)
* Gold plated connector for superior conductivity




Weighing in at 3.1kg, this is a very heavy unit for its size. Most of the weight comes from the massive surface area of aluminium fins that dissipate heat, helping to cool the unit.

"Today I'll be looking at the Phantom 500w PSU from Antec. This unit is based on Antec's hybrid fan/passive design which promises to keep things a little more quiet."

Yeah its a good looking unit with some good features. Out of all the PSU's i;ve tested so far, this would have to be the best for a silent PC build.
