    Xilence, global acting manufacturer of PC cooling solutions and power supply units, announced today that the new power supply units of its XQ series are now available in retail. The gold-certified 750 Watt and the platinum-certified 850 Watt model will be immediately available. A 1000 Watt platinum version is expected to come on the market at the beginning of June.

    The new XQ power supply unit range is an entirely new development. These silent running units break with the usual compact block shape, featuring a sloping side with two built-in 60 mm fans. This is the visible part of the new Direct Airflow concept, which ensures noise-free work at maximum performance. Inside, the cooling unit divides the power supply into two cooling zones monitored by temperature sensors. If the temperature exceeds a certain level in one of the zones, the fan of this zone will start to rotate slowly.

    The high efficiency of the power supply allows it to run mostly in silent passive mode. The fans only assist in the heat discharging process as of a load level of 20 to 30%. This device is ideal for noise-sensitive PC users, who want to enjoy the safety of an actively ventilated power supply unit. The red status LED at the rear of the power supply shows when the power supply unit is switched on. The noise level will not indicate if the unit is running or not.

    The angle of the sloping power supply side was specifically adapted to ensure a better airflow to the graphics card installed directly above it. Especially when triple or quad graphics cards are fitted, the power supply unit often prevents effective cooling of the bottom graphic boards.

    Another special feature is the extremely flat front connection panel of the fully modular XQ models, soldered directly to the PCB. Direct connection not only reduces the design height, but also the amount of cabling needed inside the power supply and naturally also the cables' contact resistance levels.

    Automatic fitting (SMD fitting, a common feature in the manufacture of mainboards) guarantees a consistently high finishing quality. Xilence offers its customers a five-year guarantee (after registering at www.xilence.net), and on-site replacement during the first twelve months.

    The Xilence XQ power supply units are now available in a 850 Watt version (platinum-certified) and a 750 Watt version (gold certified). The product range will be rounded out shortly by the introduction of gold-certified 550 W and 650 W models.

    For further information on the XQ power supply series, please see: http://xqpsu.xilence.net/

    No idea on the OEM, but there aren't many using SamXon caps.
    Haven't heard of issues/bad experiences with the HP series...so far.

    EDIT: Followed the link. That's also a 1000W 80+ Platinum listed.

    Xilence have been used Andyson, Topower, Enhance or Sirtec in the past, but this one looks like a Solytech unit.
    Frick says thanks.

    Is this form über funktion or viceversa?

    Seems that 2012 is the year that fashion came to the last ugly part of the invisble interior of pc cases: Lady PSU!

    According to them, to make it silent. Although with small fans, it actually usually works the other way. :laugh:

    Not a bad design at all. Reminds me of PSUs for Model Trains. Ones from Bridgewerks specifically.

    Love that they are doing something different with PSU's,
    BUT!!!
    Xilence is a pretty bad brand, I had a couple of their products including a PSU.
    Bad quality and unreliable, lets hope a higher end brand steps up and does something new :).

    I'm no expert on Xilence as a company, but I have used several of their 80mm fans in my iStarUSA D-213-MATX 2U cases and have been quite pleased with the performance. The fans have nice cabling and idle about 550 to 600 rpm's while still moving air. Dead Silent.

    Don't know about their psu's, but dig their 80mm fans.

    Best,

    Yeah it's a budget BUDGET brand, at least what we get here. This is priced pretty high though so we'll see what happens I guess.

    It looks like a robot representation from the 80s.

    Actually I have opposite opinion in design !!! It is a big disaster ...
    It doesn't make any difference that your chassis is upside down or not ... From where the hell could those fan get the air ?:shadedshu

    Yea, the first thing I noticed in the pics was the use of SamXon. No thank you!
    I would suggest that anyone planning to buy this does a full recap before actually using it.

    Some SamXon can handle workloads considerably well. But like I said, I'm not familiar with these series.
