Default Antec goes 80plus platinum with new Eartwatts

The new Antec Eartwatts series comes in three flavors. They are EA-450 Platinum, EA-550 Platinum and EA-650 Platinum. MSRP for those units are 109.95, 119.95 and 129.95USD respectively. OEM is rumoured to be FSP.

I have no idea. Probably based on the FSPxxx-80ETN platform?

Definitely FSP whatever the platform. The "Noise Killer" sticker is a dead give away.

That seems most likely.

IIRC the Aurum's OEM name is EGN so it could be (as I assumed) a Platinum version of Aurum. Though, I don't think we've seen internals of any of FSP's Platinum designs.

A case similar to VP series, which is kind of cheap...

VP units are Value-Power and the only thing "wrong" with them was the fan grill at the top which caused more noise then your traditional circle/wire grills.

You think the punch grill's are noisier than fan guards?

That's what I am thinking about. Punched holes cost less than installing a separate grill, but make noise.

People may buy 80plus platinum units for low speed fans and quietness. Sometimes they can't get what they want because of unnecessary cost-cutting features.
