SilverStone ST50NF Nightjar 500W Silent PSU
4 September 2012
Conclusion: SilverStone's ST50NF Nightjar PSU is of particular interest to computing users who value silence over all-out power. Housed in aluminium casing and cooled with a healthy selection of heatsinks - both internal and external - the 500W capacity is stout enough to power a solid build that can include the latest Intel Core i7-3770K CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 graphics card.
SilverStone Nightjar ST50NF 500W Fanless Power Supply Review
1 May 2012
Excerpt: SilverStone was one of the first PC power supply manufacturers to design and market a fanless power supply for silent operation. While many of their competitor’s fanless products have come and gone, SilverStone continues to build on their reputation and later last year released the SST-ST50NF 500W fanless power supply, which is the latest addition to the Nightjar series.
Excerpt: SilverStone is back on our test bench today with a fully silent and fanless 500 watt computer power supply that is making some very impressive "Silver" efficiency claims. Beyond that, terms like "noiseless," "dusty environments," and "mission-critical" are thrown around. Now to figure out what a "Nightjar" is.

Summary: We began this comparison review knowing that the Silverstone was outmatched by the Kingwin, and the tests went overwhelmingly to the favorite. Part of the reason for the one-sided outcome is that in a fanless power supply, the effect of efficiency on cooling is enormous. With the STR-500 producing just half the heat of the ST50NF, the heat-related stresses on the components are far less, as is the ease of cooling.
Excerpt: It's become a trend lately. More and more often, I'm seeing units come through here that are higher efficiency than ever, and many of these are turning up without fans. Silverstone is the latest company to float one of these fanless units my way in the ST50NF. You may recall that I once had a look at another fanless unit from these folks in the Etasis built ST45NF. Let's find out if this newer, higher efficiency fanless unit has what it takes to compete these days.

Summary: The SilverStone Nightjar ST50NF 500W Fanless Power Supply is 100% silent. There's no fan whatsoever which makes it a perfect option for a silent computer build and it's also 80+ Bronze certified. If your in the market for a fanless Power Supply, this would be an excellent product.
Excerpt: Nightjar ST50NF er en 500 watt strømforsyning uten vifte. Silverstone retter strømforsyningen spesielt mot stue-pc-er, men med 500 watt skal kapasiteten være god nok til også å drive relativt kraftige vanlige stasjonære pc-er.
