Every once in a while gearheads like myself will happen across a bit of hardware that just makes them smile ear to ear. This is one of those days, we'll be reviewing the 470 watt offering from Enermax's improved Noisetaker line. This line offers the types of features and quality that the most demanding users desire. From dual 12V rails, to SATA connectors, to a separate 4-pin connector for high-end video cards, this power supply does it all and more.


Manufacturer's Features/Specifications:

Smart fan: After PC shuts down, cooling fans keep running for at least 2 minutes to effectively cool down parts and hardware inside PSU and PC cases. Thus, ensure longer product life time of power supply and hardware inside PC case.
Separate 12V rails: Independent 12V rails supply to MB/CPU and drives in order to provide stable and clean current to noise-sensitive devices, such as: CPU, add-on cards. Meets UL 240VA safety requirements
ATX 12V V1.3 compatible: Support latest P4 and Athlon 64 platforms. For P4 platforms use 865 (Springdale) & 875 (Canterwood) chipsets and even new P4 Prescott and AMD Athlon 64 or later CPU.
S-ATA connectors: Connect your system to the faster S-ATA interface for better performance.
Manual and automatic fan speed control : 8cm & 9cm fans automatically controlled by thermostat plus rheostat control over 8cm fan. Enable users to keep the balance between cooling effect and acoustic noise.
Extra Power connector: Extra 4-pin power connector provides high-end graphic card with stable current.
Reliability: OCP, UVP, OVP, OLP, OTP, and SCP circuits ensure system well-guarded from any dangers. Maximize safety for your hardware and valuable data.
Copper-shielding: Effectively reduces electro-magnetic interference that might affect MB and CPU from normal operation. (Valid for models with 370W and higher total power)
Dual Fan: The best cooling method for PC system, and is strongly suggested by AMD.
Active PFC function: PF value 0.99 under condition of 230VAC/50Hz at full load.
Silence: Acoustic noise is successfully reduced with two fans giving more airflow in less rpm and smooth mechanical design of fan guards.
FM & FC functions: RPM signal of 8cm exhaust fan is provided; EG xxx AX-VE SFCA/FCA models allow MB to on/off control 8cm exhaust fan.
