Results: Our Choice--Silverstone
Our results favor Silverstone’s Nightjar. At medium and high outputs, the efficiency is very high, and the unit cannot be heard even under full load. Also advantageous are connection cables at sensible lengths, which also enable use in larger cases, and flexible connection options with the separable 8-pin connections for CPU and graphics card.
The less expensive power supply from Fortron only gains points for operation with low power systems, which work with outputs in the 50 watt to 150 watt range—at higher output ranges the power supply starts to emit a bothersome high-pitched noise. On the other hand, the constantly high efficiency and low standby power consumption are notable.
