Fighting Fan Noise Pollution

Silverstone: Silent 300-watt Mains Adapter

Not only system and CPU fans are loud, mains adapter fans also share the blame for computers not being suitable for use in the bedroom or living room. Only few manufacturers have so far demonstrated that this doesn't necessarily have to be the case and consequentially charge a pretty penny for fan-free mains adapters. If you now switch off the CPU and graphic card fans, your computer will be very quiet indeed. You'll never truly be able to eradicate the rattle of the hard drive, not even with good soundproofing.

The 300-watt mains adapter gets by without a fan.

The packaging promises no sound at all

Heat dissipation is ensured using heatpipe technology


Available: SST-ST-30NF 300 watts
