FSP GROUP ZEN 400 WATT INTRODUCTION
While a large number of aftermarket PC products are targeted at the high-end performance subset of computer enthusiasts, the quiet/silent PC folks are somewhat under represented. While it's no easy task to choose just the right parts for, say a maximum effort gaming machine, there is a lot of hardware out there to choose from. Silent PC aficionados don't have this luxury, and searching for components with acceptable acoustic properties can be a frustrating experience. Recently, FSP Group has come out with the Zen series of fanless power supplies that will be of great interest to the silent computing community. FSP has an enviable reputation among enthusiasts for building quality power supplies and marketing them at a fair price. The Zen series is offered in 300- and 400-watt versions and they've sent the Zen 400 to us for evaluation.
