Platinum PSU Huntkey FX500SE Review

Nowadays more and more PSU manufacturers tend towards a better acoustic ergonomics of their products. Sure thing this is linked with the desire of customers to have high-performance but quiet systems. There is small wonder that traditional power supplies are rather noisy, due to air fans, so the manufacturers invented a sophisticated solution: hybrid cooling. It presupposes two working modes: active — with fans on and passive — with fans off. Huntkey is one of the companies that successfully implemented this invention into proprietary devices. Its FX500SE is a good example of efficiency combined with quiet operation. Plus, it provides users with appropriate connectivity facilities.

Presently the Passive CPU Cooling System by Hdplex is Retailed as a Standalone Product

The sale of Hdplex H5 case, meant for a passive cooling system assembling, started in fall. Inner components are constructed to be passively chilled down and work noiselessly. In fact, the Hdplex H5 framework constitutes a big heatsink dissipating heat outwards. With the help of the copper base heat from the processing unit is carried over heat pipes to the left side panel of the case.



The news is that lately this CPU passive cooling system has gone on sale as a standalone product, the supply set of which offers a copper base, an aluminium heat dissipator, eight 6 mm copper heat pipes, a portion of thermal grease and fittings for mounting on LGA115x Intel CPUs.


The system from Hdplex costs $65.
