    the stumbling block to adoption is due to be price. Enermax says the 650W model will cost around £170 when released in Q3.
    Cough!

    Fanless it may be, but aren't those vents in the case just going to add whatever heat is generated into the case, requiring a fan to vent it out anyway? Much prefer the Corsair (and others) system where the fan only switches on when the temperature builds up, so it's silent until you start pushing your system.

    That'd be my opinion too - plus don't modern PSU's use huge (and therefore slow rotating) fans that produce a low level of low frequency noise anyway. Put it this way my Corsair AX750 is pretty damned quiet - and the noise that it does produce isn't loud or annoying, (and it's one of the older "Gold" level ones, not the new Platinum AX's).

    I like Enermax PSU's myself - my current Corsair being pretty much the first time in years that I've strayed, and while they are on the "premium" side wrt price, £170 is way too much.

    Forgetting the price aside for a moment, I'd like to see the braided cables first please.

    Good to see another entrant into the truly silent PSU market. Silent is zero decibels. Anything above that may be quiet, silent it isn't.

    Well I guess if they are really willing to sell PSU's like this one, they may be out of luck...
    I believe no one is going to pay a pile of money just for a PSU which is silent but does not offer, software control, awesome voltage regulation like Corsairs...

    However with this they ( I mean all manufacturers ), may learn how to make PSU's with even lower temperatures, and with that, psu's which have very very quiet fans..
