If you want a truly silent system there are a lot of things to consider purchasing: a passive graphics card, a passive CPU cooler, SSD storage instead of mechanical hard drives and more importantly a passively cooled power supply. The advantages of a passively cooled power supply are numerous but the main advantage is that unlike most power supplies that will get noisy above 50% load a passive power supply never gets noisy. Other advantages include the fact that passive power supplies tend to require higher quality components in order to keep heat output down so when you buy a passive power supply you also know you’re buying quality and an efficient unit. Today I am taking a look at my second passively cooled power supply but this time from a brand not many people have heard of. Super Flower may not be well known as a consumer brand but Super Flower already feature inside many high-end power supplies sold by big brands, EVGA is the most notable one of those that springs to mind. In the UK market at least Super Flower are deciding to go at it as a standalone brand selling a wide range of their power supplies through Overclockers UK at very competitive prices. In this review I will be looking at Super Flower’s Golden Silent 500W passive power supply. This is an interesting power supply for a number of reasons: because it is 80 Plus Platinum rated, because it has a whopping big heatsink built into the PSU but also because the design has been built in its entirety from the ground up by Super Flower.
