    An interesting concept, but I question it's usefulness - as far as I can tell it still requires at least *some* airflow (or at least some breathing room) and it's priced fairly highly, 190USD MSRP is just too high for most people to deal with - for reference right now you can get a PRIME Titanium 600w fanless for $10 less (it's been on the market longer and has had chance to drop in price, to be fair, but still...)

    This feels like it's reaching for a *very* small niche...

    Also, FSP had something of a hybrid between this type of fanless design and a "normal" fanless unit for a while now: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/fK9...-supply-zen400 unlike Silverstone they used normal heatsinks inside then heatsinked them to the finned part of the chassis: http://it-review.net/uploads/images/...en400/zen1.jpg
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    Looks good.
    But how's the Temperature?
    Especially when integrated into a RVZ-01?

    How much does it heat up the HDD above the PSU?

    We were involved with that FSP unit too with our own ST40NF several years back.

    The problem for us was that all fanless or quiet PSUs, no matter how much tuning we do, will inevitably encounter a system configuration or application in which coil whine or electrical noise will show up to irritate someone (we suspect to have super human hearing, maybe...). NJ450-SXL's sealed enclosure design could very well be the first retail PC power supply to finally solve this niche issue for us.

    Temperature will be quite low with expected normal usage (idle + occasional dynamic load between 300W to 400W). Under continuous full load, the casing could get up to around 55C in room temp, slightly hot to touch, but not unreasonable for a fanless unit. So really depends on how you use it if you integrate into the RVZ01.
