That PSU can drive normal computer with 500 maximum total watts.

 

It produces quite low amount of heat so no fan needed. It will run quite hot though at 500 watts.

 

I would say that semi passive PSU's are equally good, even better IMO because on high loads fan really helps keeping temps down.

Basically any desktop computer that needs/makes use of an ATX 500W power supply.

It is suitable for any kind of use of a computer?


In theory, yes.

I not sure if it might be the best choice for a computer that will be overclocked or a gaming computer as I am not sure how well it dissipates heat compared to a traditional PSU with a fan. If it dissipates heat more uniformly (as opposed out the fan exhaust vent of a traditional PSU), then it might contribute more heat to the inside of the computer case. You would really have to find a review of the supply or talk to the maker of the PSU to see what they say.

I would say it is "aimed" (marketing-wise) as users who want to minimize noise from a computer. A good example of this might be a media center PC in a familyroom hooked to TV. In such situations, the users tend to want the computer to be silent or as close to silent as possible as the sound of computer fans running might impact the "viewing experience" while watching movies, etc played through the media center PC on the TV.

But, I could also see someone who has to have their computer in the same room as their bedroom (i.e. students in a dorm room) liking a computer that is potentially closer to silent. OTOH, I would expect that they are likely more expensive (potentially significantly more expensive) than a 500W traditional PSU, which would deter most college students.

Of course, this all seems some what meaningless as I am not sure you can get them. All of their "where to buy" places do seem to offer them (Amazon had one list for it from a third party seller for $4999...so no sure it is a legitimate offering).

There are no "standard ATX" or "full ATX". There is only ATX, everything "insertsomethinghere ATX" is marketing.

 

ATX PSU is 150mm*86mm, depth is around 140 mm or more. That PSU is 160mm.
