Zalman Debuts All New Fanless and RGB Spectrum Power Supplies

While at Computex 2019 we also had a chance to look at Zalman's power supply lineup which has seen some interesting additions in the FPSU800 and ZM-DFP 700 and 800 which are all new designs. The FPSU800 is billed as the worlds first 800-watt fanless power supply and uses DTH (Direct Touch Heat-pipes) and an all aluminium case to keep temperatures in check while also ensuring long term reliability. It is fully modular with RGB edge lighting keeping things neat and tidy with a touch of flair. In regards to the details, it is an 80 Plus Gold unit with capacitors rated at 105°C. When it comes to protection, the FPSU800 offers OPP, OCP, OTP, OVP, UVP, and SCP and has an Active-PFC design. As the name implies, only an 800-watt unit version is available.

Meanwhile, the ZM-DFP is a bit more gamer focused, available in 700-watt and 800-watt versions it features RGB Spectrum 120 mm and 80 mm fans. Much like the FPSU800, it is fully modular, 80-Plus Gold rated, and has the same protection mechanisms including an Active-PFC design.
Zalman also had their ZM600SP on hand as well. This particular series will be available in 400-watt, 500-watt, and 600-watt versions. It has a standby power rating of 0.2-watts or less and like the previously detailed models is an Active-PFC design. It is not modular and has an efficiency rating of just 80% when at 100% load.

Same as any other PSU but it doesn't need a fan because heatpipes carry the heat to the case which acts as a giant heatsink? And its a world first i suppose cause they slapped 800-watts on it while the others top out around 700-watts.

Isn't the case a bit too small to dissipate that?
Although, now that I think about what "that" is, it doesn't sound shocking at all. So at most 8%-ish of that 800w,. Most users will top at 400-500 watts, so 40-ish watt. Mm, doable.

What exactly is the market for a fanless rgb power supply?

Can't be for professional use otherwise why add rgb?

Most hybrid fan PSU don't even turn their fans on until 50% use of max power and they are silent to begin with at low speeds.

Why not just slap a silent 800rpm fan on the unit?
