    Rosewill announced the SilentNight 500W fanless PSU and Tachyon 550W. The two 80 Plus Platinum-compliant PSUs were launched earlier today. The SilentNight 500W appears to be based on a Super Flower platform, and uses a chunky aluminum heatsink that makes direct contact with hot components such as FETs, to cool itself, without needing a fan. It features sufficient cabling for a mid-range dual-GPU gaming PC, including a pair 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, 8-pin EPS, 24-pin ATX, and up to six SATA power connectors. It uses a partially-modular cabling layout.

    The Tachyon 550W, on the other hand, uses a slow (quiet) temperature-controlled 140 mm fan to cool itself. It packs an identical contingent of cables to the SilentNight 500W. Both models feature single +12V rail designs, modern regulatory compliances, and protection against a variety of electrical anomalies, such as over/under voltage, overload, short-circuit, overheat, etc. The two will occupy price points around US $100.

    Really nice looking PSU's. If they are Seasonic based even better.

    These look nice but the price is too high.

    I'd go with the capstone series and save a bunch of money.

    Yes I know the Rosewill SilentNight is a Super Flower Golden Silent, I was contending the assertion that the Antec Phantom500 was a Seasonic unit.
    I also know that the Phantom500 is semi-fanless.

    Then why did you bring it up? :)

    I don't understand what relevance that Hardware Secrets link has.

    because of the similarity in design

    because the company who made the PCB initially is still around today and makes corsair units more often

    I don't see much similarity to be honest with you.

    CWT build units for loads of companies.
