    Great review :)
    Bit weird that they only give 3 years warranty.
    The Coil Whine is a deal breaker for me, the reason to buy a fanless psu is to have perfect silence. I'd prefer some fan noise above coile whine then.

    "Silverstone also says to have made sure the NJ520 is up to their standards of silence before giving production their go."
    Not so very high standards then if they allow that coil whine. :rolleyes:

    when I meet a sample with coil whine I mention it (like I did in this review). Obviously none of the Corsair units I tested had coil whine else I would have mentioned it. They sell tons of units so I suspect that it is natural that some users will fall into trouble and of course they will complain on the net about it. On the contrary when something works ok you forget it and don't bother to write something about it (unless asked).
