Silence is golden, er… platinum
There are myriad quiet PSU out there, but Fractal Design’s new Ion+ Platinum is the first I’ve seen that can be configured to run in a semi-passive “Zero RPM” mode. Which frankly sounds like the perfect approach to selecting a PSU for a HTPC, or any PC, that will be used in a noise sensitive environment.
Introducing the Ion+ Platinum PSU – the power of silence
Revolutionary cables and custom cooling bring game-changing flexibility with silent efficiency.
Welcome the Ion+ Platinum – a modular, high-performance power supply unit with emphasis on whisper-quiet operation, enhanced cable flexibility and superior output quality.
A user selectable semi-passive Zero RPM mode ensures the fan won’t spin up until needed, and even then it is unlikely to be noticed thanks to a highly efficient custom design leveraging an exceptionally low minimum speed.
One of the most revolutionary new features is our very own UltraFlex™ DC cabling. An extremely high strand-count with specially formulated insulation made it possible to reduce conductors to just 0.08 mm in diameter – half the thickness of competing products – without loss of efficiency or current capacity. The UltraFlex™ cable bends and twists effortlessly, eliminating the inherent hassles of traditional rigid power supply wiring to make installation and cable-routing a breeze.
Ion+, available now in 560, 660, 760 and 860 watt capacities, is rated 80 PLUS® Platinum Efficiency, comes with a 10-year warranty and sports a full electrical protection suite for your peace of mind.
