just read the 510 review and I can add these rather expensive power supplies are worth the money. We (Lockheed Martin) tested several Turbo Cool 300w several years ago in our lab and found they were the best we had seen, other than custom made supplies at three times the cost. One rather nice feature of this model is the pots mounted on the inside to adjust the voltages if necessary. You can also order the 510 with the pots assessible from the outside of the case....not sure how they actually do it or how much extra that would cost. If you want absolute rock-solid stability under all conditions, this is the one to get.
My question is whether these will actually work well with the newer AMD processors since they strongly suggest a supply with the second fan on the bottom. I build only Intel systems so I have no first hand knowledge. If anyone has used one for the newer AMD motherboard systems, I would like to know how well it did.

Hi greybeard61... Welcome!! Sun

I haven't used this one on a new AMD setup, but I do have a fanless power supply I will be trying out on an AMD A64 3200+ very soon...

I have ben seeing alot of single fan and no fan power supplies coming out, and although I'd prefer to stick with what is recommended, I think good case cooling should compensate for anything the psu may have done...

I have seen the product descriptions for the fanless PS and was wondering about how they might work in real-world conditions. I also agree that the power supply fans are actually designed to keep the PS reasonably cool, not help with CPU cooling. A good case with an exhaust fan on the rear should do that job.....you would think anyway.
I did get a reply from PC Power and Cooling Tech's and the pots can be mounted externally but at 30 bucks for each pot....90 if you want to be able to adjust all three. They send the PS with 36" wires attached to the pots and mounting is your job. They recommend drilling holes in a slot cover on the back of the computer and mount the pots. I am working on a better location for the pots, along with test points to measure the actual voltage with a DVM. Sounds expensive but they would stand behind their work.
