Fanless power supply units (PSUs) are not quite common in the market, especially among the high-powered ones – this is because delivering high levels of current will produce significant heat to its circuitry, necessitating some form of active cooling to prevent overheating (and damage).

Usually, you won’t see fanless designs past 700 watts; however, it is known that Cooler Master is bringing something that blows the figures out of the water (as per Hardwareand.co, via Videocardz). The X-Silent Edge Platinum 1100W, as its name implies, is a fanless PSU capable of delivering a staggering 1,100 watts of power without any form of active cooling. There’s also a second variant that supplies 850 watts of power.

Based on the marketing materials, it looks like this is a power supply that will support all the modern-day standards, including 12VHPWR connector, modular cables, USB and PMBUS connectors, plus the usual assortment of peripheral power connections. The same leak also reveals a third, 1300-watt variant that does come with a fan for active cooling, but given its branding, it’s safe to assume these will only activate in the heaviest of workloads – something that even a single RTX 4090 GPU would be hard-pressed to even achieve.

It is said that the Taiwanese peripheral company will be unveiling this PSU officially through the upcoming CES 2024, so we should get a bit more details on its specs and numbers by next week.

Pokdepinion: I imagine the efficiency figures should be right up there since heat is a form of inefficiency (meaning it should be so efficient that heat should be manageable).
