Silverstone Adds 80-Plus Gold Models to Essential PSU Series

Silverstone is expanding their Essential Series power supplies with new 80-Plus Gold models. This delivers superior performance to their previous Essential Series 80-Plus Bronze offerings, while maintaining value. These Essential “HG” series provides 550W, 650W and 750W options with semi-modular cables. These models are rated for continuous output at 40 degrees Celcius.

Strong Silent Type

In usual Silverstone fashion, these units are compact and quiet. Even the 750W model measures only 150 x 160 x 86mm. Plus, it has the power density of 363W per liter. It uses a single +12V rail with active PFC. The components are cooled by a single 140mm fan, which stays around 500 rpm until it reaches more than half the load. Even at 80% load it only ramps up to 1000 rpm, making it sensibly quiet. Even at the highest RPM, it only registers at 18DB.

The cables are also equally stealthy, using a flat black design. These make them easier to manage and blends in the background of most black cases. The EPS12V 8-pin cable is also longer at 750mm so that it can route around the back. All other cables are 500mm long, which should be perfectly comfortable inside a full-tower case.

Pricing Information

Expect these to be available within January 2018 with the following prices in the European market:

  • ET750-HG = 90€
  • ET650-HG = 80€
