SilverStone Nightjar 500W Passive PSU

VR Zone checked out SilverStone's booth at Computex. They saw a couple of nice cases like the Temjin TJ-10 and SG-03 and some new power supplies like the SilverStone Zeus 1200W with modular cabling.

But IMO one of the more interesting products on display at SilverStone's booth is their upcoming SilverStone Nightjar 500W power supply which is completely passive. This new power supply reminds me of the SilverStone SST-ST30NF which I reviewed about three years ago. I believe they still ship the ST30NF but that PSU had a max output of 300W (at 220V, at 110V it only had a max output of 250W) which is kinda low by today's standards.

However, the new Nightjar model offers 500W with up to 32A on a single 12V rail, which should be more than enough for most PC users. This power supply has no fan so it should be extremely quiet, a perfect fit for a silent PC system or a HTPC.
