Perhaps, but I'm not sure how big the market would be. Plus there are issues with EMI, etc. Normally the PSU's metal case acts as a Faraday cage to keep its switching noise from leaking to other devices, and to keep outside noise from affecting the PSU.

Right now always end up getting the not so good but reliable Corsair CX series. Probably bought 4-5 of them for friends.

 

This.

 

Now that you mentioned it, I'd like to see some good modular and non-modular PSUs with at least one 6-pin PCI-E connector in the 300-400W range.

Whoa, I didn't know that it acts as a Faraday cage. So then, nevermind. Wow.

 

That's good to know.

SFX and other smaller form factors.


With the reduction in power consumption, trending towards SFF, and increase popularity of HTPCs.... I would like to see more innovation in 200-400w units.


i.e. Can you fit a 92mm fan in a SFX? Or how about a short ATX PSU with a 92mm fan?

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

  1. A SILENT fan. Many PSUs these days seem to use awful fans for cooling their components. Yeah, Seasonic and some other OEMs do have the hybrid ability on their PSU, but sometimes, your PSU has to run at a load that triggers the PSU fan. And those fans can get quite loud.
  2. No ribbon cables. They are an absolute PITA to sleeve.
  3. On the topic of suggestion number one: Also make a kinda modular design for the fan to where you can easily pop off just the top to change the fan to one of your liking. Your GX line already uses 120mm fans, so if you created maybe a screwed in top (the entire top faceplate) that could easily be detatched with easily access to changing the fan, would pretty much be a solid choice.
  4. And please do 1-to-1 cabling. Please.


TL;DR: Customizability.

1 to 1 cabling - yes. User replaceable fan? No.

The manufacturer could never be satisfied that the replacement you use would be up to spec to cool the PSU properly. I would like to see this too, but I don't think it's possible due to warranty issues. I mean, what if someone replaces the ugly, loud (but efficient) stock fan for a silent, pretty (but low quality) fan and the PSU overheats and dies? You can't really expect the manufacturer to honor the warranty in this case. As it stands, you can replace the fan in your PSU, you just have to break the stickers on the housing and void your warranty to do it, which I think is fair.

Hmmmm.... is there any way to do a SATA cable with user defined plugs?

I personally make my own SATA cables with crimp-on plugs so I can have a nice clean run... one cable can easily supply 5 HDDs.

ok back on topic

That would be great seen a smaller form factor psu with good looking chassis and lot real juice. today's smaller form factor psu does look ugly and no enough not juice to keep a good hardware safe. Just imagine a nice HTPC with the size a cablebox wubsmiley.gif

Wait a minute... Since when dude you become a CM rep?

And I want to see the awesomeness that is found in the AX1200i

Silverstone has 450w in SFX but it is loud under full load. I'm guessing that 500w would be absolute max in a SFX. For an inaudible solution, I was hoping for like a 300w SFX unit.

Hybrid cooling design (i.e. the same technology/idea used on the VRM coolers of the ASUS Maximus VI Formula) with bundled software that will allow you to turn off the fan for silence, set your fan speeds, monitor efficiency and power draw, and temperatures. I think the hybrid cooling design paired with the option to allow you to turn the PSU fan off under lower temperatures would be a great option for those looking to liquid cool, or for those who just want to have a silent system. Also, removable/swappable plates (paintable) to color coordinate the PSU exterior with the system would be a great option, as long as it is not too gaudy (PSU's with LED fans tend to resemble inferior quality PSU's). If these features are integrated into high end, reliable power supplies, the targeted market (PC enthusiasts, modders, etc.) would likely increase.
