As with all power supplies that pass through Overclock3D, i'll be taking a look inside the ST56F. By doing this i should be able to get a good idea of the overal build quality of the unit and how it is likely to perform in our tests.
My initial impressions of this unit on Page #1 was that it was supprisingly heavy, lets have a look inside and see if we can find out where all this weight is coming from...
Aluminium heatsinks with large fins have been attached to the capacitors to allow for excelent cooling over a large surface area. The included 120mm fan is manufacturerd by ADDA (Model: AD1212HS-A71GL) which, according to ADDA's PDF runs at a mere 220rpm while still managing to push an amazing 85.2cfm at 39.1dBA....something doesn't sound quite right to me there.
