A new wind blows from Sharkoon and their range of PC power supplies expands with a new series: The Sharkoon SilentStorm Icewind power supply series is now available in two editions, black or white, in either 550, 650, and 750 Watt.
The Sharkoon SilentStorm Icewind, in a white edition, is deliberately kept in line with the colors snow white and ice blue and is aimed at users who, in addition to the technical details, also attach importance to the design of their components and their cabling. Naturally, the textile braided cable also fits perfectly into the color scheme.
Modular cables and cable combs ensure the PC stays tidy. The cables can be secured with practical cable combs and are kept intentionally modular, except for the firmly soldered 24-pin mainboard cable and 4+4-pin CPU cable. This ensures that only the immediately needed cables are used. In addition to the firmly soldered cables, a cable with three 4-pin IDE connectors as well as three cables with three SATA connectors are included; an extra two PCIe cables with a 6+2-pin connector is provided in the 550 Watt version. The 650 and 750 Watt versions connect via its two PCIe cables, each with two 6+2-pin connector. The unused cables can be easily stored in the included cable bag. Thanks to the used DC-to-DC technology, the SilentStorm Icewind benefits from increased voltage stability since the other voltages are not affected by load changes of the 12 V rail. The power supply is effectively cooled via its 135 mm fan.
The SilentStorm Icewind meets the requirements of the 80 PLUS Initiative “PLUG LOAD SOLUTIONS” with an efficiency of over 85% by 50% load and is certified “80 PLUS Bronze” for effective energy efficiency. The power supply is also certified according to current environmental standards and guarantees safety thanks to over power, over voltage, under voltage, short circuit, over current and over temperature protections. The warranty period is three years.
The SilentStorm Icewind Black, an all-black edition, is also available and offers nearly identical features such as “80 PLUS Bronze” certification, modular cable, DC-to-DC technology, 135 mm fan and a three-year warranty. Black flat cables are included instead of textile braided cables with cable combs.
The SilentStorm Icewind Power Supply Series in both black and white editions are available now for the suggested retail price starting from 69.90 euros from authorized retailers.

Sharkoon announces the availability of its SilentStorm IceWind, a new line of 80Plus Bronze power supplies. They're available in 550W, 650W or 750W editions, and ship in black or white versions. Specification-wise there's nothing special here but I do kinda like the design of the white edition, it looks pretty good with the black/white accents and the black/blue cables. Pricing starts at 69.90EUR.
