    450W, 500W and 550W indeed only have DC-DC for the 3,3V. 600W and 650W have both the 3,3V and 5V, I asked them.

    For passive PSUs plastic heatsinks can actually be as good as aluminium ones The only requirement is an even heat distribution along the heatsink.

    The more thermally conductive a material is the better. Try making a heat sink out of rubber in a passive PSU - yeah, not working well.

    There are studies using plastic heatsinks for passive cooling. If you have small fins there isn't even a performance difference to aluminium. And there are also advantages for plastic like easy electric isolation and the ability for pick & place automatisation.
    The worse thermal conductivity is only a disadvantage with an inhomogenous heat source. If costs don't matter you can inject a copper leadframe to solve this

    Only if it is cheap and no other options available.

    another option with similar price here would be:

    - FSP Hexa+II 400/500w
    - Enermax Naxn 500w
    - XFX XT 400w
    - Antec VP 500w
    - Antec NeoEco 450w
    - Be Quiet System Power 8 400w

    Which one is better?
