    Arrow Silverstone NJ450-SXL Review

    First, Silverstone decided to get our attention by cramming ever increasing power output into ever smaller power supplies. Now, they're looking to innovate again by showing us the first ever (to my knowledge) fanless SFX-L power supply. Folks, let's have a look at the 80 Plus Platinum Nightjar 450-SXL and we'll see just how good an idea it is to consider taking fans out of such a small housing.

    Great review wolf

    Good PSU, it is expensive but worth it, though i've never used SFX psu's.

    Looks good.
    What are the Lytics next to the Transformer, near the 1500µF/16V ones?
    I'd assume they are 2200µF/16V Unicon Low ESR. Are they 105°C or even 125°C types??


    Looks like a really awesome unit!
    Though has the usual "Fanless Tax", but looks like a real fanless design, that is made to be fanless.

    The Unicon caps are 125F Parts

    You mean 125°C, do you?
    Because 52°C Parts seem a bit low

    I wonder when one would pick this type of closed PSU over a regular SFX one with a fan? I'm struggling to come up with applications beyond 'fanless systems'.

    The noise factor. You could throw this thing into an HTPC and make a very quiet system without having to worry about picking out the right unit.

    Perhaps a dirty environment

    Probably useful for audio-recording PCs and such as well, I guess. Though one still needs to have some airflow in the system. Heatsinking this PSU to an enclosure seems somewhat tricky.

    Didn't Zalman at one point make this one fanless system (case) with heatpipes and such running from the sides of the case (big, clunky heatsinks) to the components that had to be cooled? I wonder how this PSU would fit into such a system
