Perfect fanless PSU – Seasonic SSR-600TL
The best streaming requires complete silence, and Seasonic SSR-600TL fanless PSU provides that. It has the lowest possible noise rating from Cybenetics, LAMBDA-A++, which ensures silence.
Noise levels were never higher than 28dbA, such as a whispering.
The Seasonic SSR-600TL defies the general rule that passive-cooling CPUs are only appropriate for lower power consumption.SSR-600TL is equipped with a premium Japanese 105c capacitors.
Additionally, it has Titanium’s highest Cybernetics efficiency rating of 80 Plus. In terms of efficiency, this equates to 94+% at 50% load and 90% at 100% load.
However, independent testing has revealed that Seasonic SSR-600TL performs even better, at 96% under 50% load and 93.5% under full load.
This makes it one of the highest-quality PSUs available with great efficiency and low noise.
Typically completely modular, it is also incredibly small (170 x 150 x 86 mm). Perfect for the build of a streamer.
Exceptional 50A can be handled on the +12V rail, while 2.5A can be handled on the 5VSB rail. Even though the aggregate power output of the minor rails is only 100W, they aren’t frequently used.
OPP is a good protection feature, and all rails include short circuit protection. Additionally, it is well-protected from significant inrush currents and voltage spikes.
Strong ripple suppression is achieved thanks to the use of high-grade Japanese 105c capacitors throughout. In fact, this model’s ripple suppression was ranked in the top 2% of all models.
Seasonic SSR-600TL has 6 SATA, 5 Molex, 2 EPS, 4 PCIe connectors, which are uncommon on fanless models. Although it isn’t ideal, there is less than 15cm between the peripheral connectors because of the device’s overall size. The highest-capacity fanless PSU on the market right now is Seasonic’s Prime Fanless 600W (or SSR-600TL). It can offer greater power without the use of active cooling components because of its high efficiency (80 PLUS Titanium and ETA-A+ in the Cybenetics program). A 600W power output under demanding working circumstances without a cooling fan is a remarkable accomplishment. Actually, it demonstrates the full range of Seasonic’s Prime platform, which is now regarded as the best analog platform available. We’ve discovered that the Prime design is so superior in several fields that it even competes with totally digital platforms. Seasonic’s engineers are able to push analog circuits to limits that were once believed to be unattainable because of their extensive experience in the industry.
All other main 650w models, excluding its own Seasonic SSR-650TD, which isn’t fanless, were outperformed by it in terms of overall performance.
You should have enough headroom with 650W for the components needed to stream games in 1080p or even 1440p.
The increased price of fanless is the only major downside.
However, Seasonic at least backs up its claims with a record-breaking 12-year warranty.
