    Arrow Enermax Digifanless 550 Review

    It's been a few months since the last time we saw either an Enermax unit or a fanless unit come through here. Today, that dry spell ends on both counts as we take a look at the very promising Enermax Digifanless 550 watt unit. This is a fanless 80 Plus Platinum unit that recently turned some heads at Computex. And I have one. Let's take a look.

    Aren't they U.S made? Logically, they have to be superior than the chinese ones.
    (*I'm seriously considering buying an (Enhance-made) Tt GRAND Platinum 850, which uses some Dura electrolytics, so i'm motivated about Dura quality )
    2. I find it hilarious 2 top-tier PSU companies (Enermax/CWT), to give instructions for the fan to face-up, and the PSU screws to forcing you to put the PSU with the fan down !!! (When i will finally find the perfect PSU? I'm getting discouraged )
    3. I am a little worried with the standby spike. Isn't this very important? My pc many times stays in standby mode.
    Shouldn't this might cause problems in longterm?

    Well, if you still have the rig that's in your sig you may actually want a psu with a nice, big spike so you've got a reason to upgrade really soon

    -In order to keep my current setup alive for as long as possible, was the reason for my everlasting search for the perfect PSU
    And the best part? I have 2 of these, almost completely identical, the only difference, is that the other has a 450GTS gpu, and a Seasonic X-650 (which i want to change it with the Tt GRAND Platinum 850)

    -But , to my defence, for my brother i have bought much-much better than mine :
    I5-760 / GTX780 Poseidon 3GB / 16 GBDDR3 1600MHz GSkill ARES/ EVGA Supernova G2 750
    CPU:Athlon 64 FX60 (2-cores) 2,6GHz

    It's nice to see that there are still people that love their 939 so much that they still use is today and buy a PSU for it that is just as expensive as their whole pc nowadays.

    It's in spec, and you only get a spike like that if you max out the standby rail, which is not that easy.

    The spec is there for a reason... if you're going to start worrying about stuff that's in spec, you'll never buy another power supply again

    Even if I'd had the time to mess around with that 12V VRM module I wouldn't have. As it was, I was afraid I wouldn't get this done for another week.

    I feel ya. Know that…but still I rather delay that than not doing it properly.

    It was cool to be the last to review all those Seasonic G/S12G units as everybody already checked what components are there on the DC-DC module…

    Quite the opposite!!
    The problem is that i'm worried about everything,since many customers are complaining for failed units for even the best & most expensive PSUs so far,-(* except maybe the Leadex platform which so far has been proven the most stable of all)-, that's why during the last 3 years i have changed about 7-8 PSUs for my 3 pc's (2 of my own & 1 of my brother). http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12148
    I want to finaly find the absolutely perfect PSU in all areas!! (well, maybe except voltage regulation )
