The latest victim of [H]ard|OCP's PSU torture chamber comes from Kingwin; the same fanless 500W Stryker model that Lee reviewed a short while ago.  They were impressed with the so called overclocked mode, which allows the PSU to produce 600W and still manages not only to retain stable rails but also an efficiency rating above 89%.   It soared through their torture test and managed to stay at the rated 0dB, of course.  Their final verdict was very positive, though like Lee they warn that silent PSUs are more expensive and probably won't attract many buyers who can buy the same level of quality in a PSU with active cooling for significantly less money.

"Kingwin, might not be the first name that comes to mind when looking for a top-shelf PSU, but in our testing Kingwin has been very consistent with quality PSU builds. Today we look at its silent 500 watt computer power supply. We all know what happens to computer component cooling when we go silent. Can Kingwin pull off another big win?"
