Xilence Presents New Entry-level Power Supply Series

Xilence, specialist in cooling, power supply and noise reduction in PCs and notebooks, presents the Performance A power supply series - which is the first new product line after the takeover by Listan. The new power supply series of Xilence is positioned in the entry-level segment but shines with efficiency, a complete security package and quality components. The new power supply series is aimed both to resellers, as well as at price-performance conscious end users.

The generously sized 12-volt line of the Performance A power supplies provide maximum power stability even in tough gaming situations. The quiet 120 millimeter fan features an improved airflow design that ensures excellent heat dissipation. All PSUs of the series are certified to the new 80PLUS standard, thus fulfilling the ErP2014 standard. To meet this standards the minimum energy efficiency of 82 percent under a 20 percent load must be achieved, at least 85 percent under 50 percent load and again 82 percent under 100 percent load.

Six integrated safety circuits always ensure a safe operation. All Performance A models feature OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OTP (Over Temperature Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection) and OLP (Overload protection).

Available in four classes
The Performance A series is available in four classes (430 Watts / 530 Watts / 630 Watts / 730 Watts). The 430 Watt version is available for 33,90 Euro (MSRP). For the 530 Watt version, the retail price is 37,90 Euro and for the 630 Watt model 45,90 Euro. The 730 Watt top model has an MSRP of 52,90 Euro.

Background information: Since Xilence and be quiet! products share the same product categories, target markets and products will be strictly separated. While be quiet! continues to address the premium market, Xilence products emphasize attractive prices and to cater for the volume market.

Through its acquisition by Listan, Xilence will obviously profit from synergy effects. Due to the long experience of be quiet! in planning and constructing power supplies and coolers, the team has excellent supplier contacts, which Xilence will benefit from in addition to its own. The established be quiet! quality control processes (for example incoming and outgoing quality control) will be adapted as well. By merging the logistics costs are also reduced and passed on as price advantage to customers.

I wouldnt buy anything from Xilence and expect it to perform very well. Certainly wouldn't trust their PSU's.

Just a basic 80+ in 2014..? Some people think already that bronze is kinda low-end. And those prices, they must been filled with Chinese crappy caps (Crapxon or something similar), I wouldn't absolutely even plug these in.

Anyone in the know about PSUs knows that by going to the source of quality PSUs - Seasonic, you get the best quality, performance and value. Independent scientific testing by sites like JonnyGuru, Hardware Secrets and others prove the quality of Seasonic PSUs unlike the unprofessional "un-boxing" type of reviews done with only a digital volt meter. Why would anyone bother with these inferior rebranded PSUs? Do your homework before spending your money.

Seasonic and Super Flower are the OEM's I trust. Sometimes you just can get rebranded quality PSU cheaper than from the OEM, like XFX for example.
