Sharkoon Announces the SilentStorm Icewind Power Supply Series

A new wind blows from Sharkoon and their range of PC power supplies expands with a new series: The Sharkoon SilentStorm Icewind power supply series is now available in two editions, black or white, in either 550, 650, and 750 Watt. The Sharkoon SilentStorm Icewind, in a white edition, is deliberately kept in line with the colors snow white and ice blue and is aimed at users who, in addition to the technical details, also attach importance to the design of their components and their cabling. Naturally, the textile braided cable also fits perfectly into the color scheme.

Modular cables and cable combs ensure the PC stays tidy. The cables can be secured with practical cable combs and are kept intentionally modular, except for the firmly soldered 24-pin mainboard cable and 4+4-pin CPU cable. This ensures that only the immediately needed cables are used. In addition to the firmly soldered cables, a cable with three 4-pin IDE connectors as well as three cables with three SATA connectors are included; an extra two PCIe cables with a 6+2-pin connector is provided in the 550 Watt version. The 650 and 750 Watt versions connect via its two PCIe cables, each with two 6+2-pin connector. The unused cables can be easily stored in the included cable bag. Thanks to the used DC-to-DC technology, the SilentStorm Icewind benefits from increased voltage stability since the other voltages are not affected by load changes of the 12 V rail. The power supply is effectively cooled via its 135 mm fan.
The SilentStorm Icewind meets the requirements of the 80 PLUS Initiative "PLUG LOAD SOLUTIONS" with an efficiency of over 85% by 50% load and is certified "80 PLUS Bronze" for effective energy efficiency. The power supply is also certified according to current environmental standards and guarantees safety thanks to over power, over voltage, under voltage, short circuit, over current and over temperature protections. The warranty period is three years.

The SilentStorm Icewind Black, an all-black edition, is also available and offers nearly identical features such as "80 PLUS Bronze" certification, modular cable, DC-to-DC technology, 135 mm fan and a three-year warranty. Black flat cables are included instead of textile braided cables with cable combs.
The SilentStorm Icewind Power Supply Series in both black and white editions are available now for the suggested retail price starting from 69.90 euros from authorized retailers.

Icewind? More like Asswind, with the heat these 80+bronze units will blow out the back. Sorry, I couldn't resist...

Few percents lesser efficiency doesn't make it a toaster. At least my Antec HCG-620 isn't one.

In true sharkoon fashion... Making mediocre products that nobody wants to buy.

On a side note these might not be too bad at all.... Sharkoon's previous 'silentstorm SFX' range that was released in 2015 was made by CWT.

If they have used CWT again then you're basically looking at a something similar to a Corsair PSU
