I hope, if i choose to buy that one, that it doesnt. I would even consider the 800w if that would make it quieter, which doesnt seem to be... :|

Is your version the 1st or the 2nd? They said that they changed to fans.
they changed the power profile of the fan controller (somehow by hardware or something) but yeah mine's the revised version

also it's not as irritating to me ._. i go to sleep with that sound

I got used to being 2 meters away from my pc and that will change to being 30 cm from it so i am trying to find a good sfx-l psu but seems noise is a constant problem in most opinions i see.

Basically any air-cooled PSU can be a passive PSU if it's downrated enough so the components stay within their thermal limits without a cooler. This is "basically" (*) the SX800-LTI internally that's downrated so it's able to sustain this load. Another SFX-L PSU wouldn't even have been possible without a high efficiency, Silverstone said to us in the past. Maybe if enough of these sell, an SFX version could be possible but I'd be amazed if it would be rated over 300W.

(*) mind you that the entire enclosure is made of much thicker aluminium so it can't be an exact 1:1, but it probably has a large amount of similar electrical components.
Thanx for the complement!
Passive 300W SFX PSU would be great and powerful enough for much of builds, I hope they sell lots of these NJ450-SXL!

I found this on SilverStone's facebook page:

It should start popping up in stores (Asia) in a couple of weeks and be widely available by the end of June or early July.

In other words, it seems we can get our hands on it quite soon.

Can't wait for reviews, I hope there is no coil whine...

Maybe a stupid question, but if they can make this, why can't they make a 450W passive external power brick of the same size?

Considering it's based on the SX800-LTI which costs even more (in my part of Europe), I think that's a good price :)
Maybe not for the wattage but there's no other SFX-L passive PSU in existence. The only thing coming close is a combination of AC-DC and DC-DC that'll easily run into the same price bracket.

What I imagine is that SeaSonic will step into the fanless SFX market later as well, given their experience with fanless parts. I wonder if SeaSonic has catching up to do with downsizing of AC/DC transformers, though.

That's entirely true !

- Combo Hdplex 400W AC-DC and DC-ATX : 400W for $198
- Combo Meanwell RPS-400-24C and Hdplex DC-ATX : 400W pour $180

Confusis, I expected more of you. You know that teaser pictures for an article coming in any more than 3 seconds is a violation of intergalactic law. Shame, shame. Give me the evidence so I can catalog it. The evidence has the right to remain silent... ;)

@Windfall - I must cave to the masses and post teaser images to alllllll the social media weeks, nay, months before something is published.

In reality, I'm just so excited to test this beast :)

Did you appreciate the "evidence has the right to remain silent" joke? I'm super proud of it for some odd reason...
