Silverstone Releases Gemini Series Redundant Power Supplies

 

Silverstone has just released their new Gemini series of Redundant Power Supplies, allowing your system to continue running even in the event of a PSU failure. 

Right now these units are available in 400W, 500W and 600W options, all of which contain two PSUs which are hot swappable. This PSU fits into a standard PS/2 ATX power supply frame, allowing this unit to be placed into almost any PC case.

Within each frame there will be two individual redundant power supplies, which measure 150 x 85 x 180 mm (WxHxD). Both units can be easily removed by pulling it's handle.

These drives are hot-swappable, which allows one of the two power supplies to be removed while the other is replaced. This allows a system using these drives to easily run in a 24/7 use case scenario.

with so many cases that have a shroud over the PSU any way this doesn't seem too bad, if you dont want to sleeve the ends of the cables you can always use extensions.

it introduces some nice posibilities, although I doubt thos fans are quiet enough to use in your average PC build.Quote

It's probably not meant for "your average pc" but for servers or workstations.Quote

It says 2x500watts.. that means it's 1000watts? Or is it 2 250watt units combined?Quote

Its a redundant PSU so if one of the 500Ws fail, you have another one to back it up. You only actually get 500W to use though.Quote
