Nightjar is silent & operates at 100.00% efficiency - Re

Post by ~El~Jefe~ » Fri Jul 02, 2010 11:46 am

Here is my review. My nightjar makes less noise than any other psu, even silent psu's on the market.

"How?" you say?

Well, I am so lazy that I have not even taken it out of its box in 3 months after purchasing it.

This truly is a silent. Not even a hum to be measured.

I also add now that it is much better than 90% effecient. Forget that crap. this is

100.00% efficient.

I have not wasted any power using it. It operates also at exactly room temperature. Say the room is even like 0 degrees Celsius. Guess what!? My nightjar has 0 degree rise above that.

So, I think I found the best psu on the market. Go and buy a nightjar and just use my simple installation techniques. It is a totally tooless installation too.

After factoring in some losses that definitely exist, say for example at the transformer (unless 100% efficient transformers exist), to get overall 100% efficiency the other parts have to be 101% efficient. :P

It still is operating perfectly fine. I would say it could operate in this manner for at least 100 years without much change.

Plus, you just can't beat my installation guide for effortless silent computing.

Please, I want to meet your dealer. Not the one who sold you the Nightjar, but the one who gave you that fabulous marijuana I'm smelling all around here :lol:

~El~Jefe~ - you are da man :idea: I have discovered your detailed installation guide can be re-worked not just for PSUs, and not just new components!! I have an old XP2100 CPU I have been meaning to shift on Fleabay but haven't yet got round to it. Using your amazing hints I now have it running completely passive - no heatsink at all! I am nearly speechless - if it wasn't for your fantastic idea it would never have occurred to me such silence and efficiency was possible! To think of all the troubles I went through to try achieve results even close to this when it was my main system makes me laugh!

This is the beginning of a bright new dawn, you should contact Al Gore or someone with this news. I think it's awfully narrow-minded to only see the acoustic benefits, the power draw figures are far more impressive and have far wider-reaching implications.

I did some rough calculations, and if half of the world's electrical appliances were installed in the way you describe, I worked out that we could reduce worldwide electricity consumption by about 50%. Startling I know!
