FSP Twins Series Redundant ATX PSU Pictured Up Close

Here are some of the first close-up pictures of the Twins Series 500W redundant power supply for ATX desktops. The PSU is essentially a hot-swapping and redundancy enclosure for two 500W 80 Plus Gold-efficient 1U server PSUs, which fits into a standard ATX (PS/2) size. The enclosure features the unit's cabling on one side, and the hot-swap bays of the two subunits on the other. The enclosure also features a USB system interface, with which you can monitor the performance of each of the two subunits, and their reliability, with programmed alerts, via included software. FSP is including two 500-Watt subunits, which are each cooled by their dedicated 40 mm server-grade fans. The arrangement is ideal for home-servers that stay on 24/7, and for mission-critical workstations.

I like the idea of dual-redundant power supplies for an important computer, but I wonder how much noise those 40mm server-grade cooling fans will make?

....wonder if im the only one who sees a new tech thats cool but have no personal use for....suddenly think of a way to totally reconfigure something that i have existing to incorporate it.....is there a support group for this type of behavior.

I would like to eventually see modular cabling if it is possible on such a design

Agreed rack mount or DC equipment doesnt have a sound limit, they design them for function and have no care for noise.

As mentioned, it really doesn't matter about the noise per-say, however, many people have movie, Plex, file, or media servers in areas of the home that noise would in fact be an issue.

I could see someone like Seasonic picking up on this idea and including a closure bracket that incorporates a single 120mm fan for a quiet operation as well as being 100% modular.
