Even though X-Spice is not a very well known brand name, they achieved what nobody else could do: building an extremely quiet power supply that is stable and affordable. We are testing the 530W model today and found that it could easily handle a Quad CrossFireX rig, and produced less fan noise under load than most other power supplies in idle.

Wow, I was trying to find me a psu that would fit in some of these awesome HTPC cases being reviewed, and it looks like I found it. Quiet is the key word here and Im overly impressed with its muscle as well. Looks like Ill be picking this baby up.
