When it comes to computer enthusiasts, some are entirely dedicated on minimizing the noise produced inside of their computer case while a fair share of other users could truly care less about the noise level as long as they are maximizing their frame-rate and processing power. In fact, there are dozens of products on the market for reducing the noise level created by your computer components whether it is a noisy fan or a hard drive that has seen better days. If you will recall, several months ago we performed an in-depth round-up entitled Silencing the SOHO that looked at several products available for reducing the noise level from improved heatsinks to fan gaskets. The engineers over at SilverStone Technology have introduced a new product for reducing the PSU noise level and that is their PP02 Power Supply Acoustic Cover. This product is a plastic frame that is lined with foam padding to absorb the sound and it attaches on the outside of the chassis.

Features:

· High strength ABS plastic construction
· Universal mounting system for any PSU
· Foam padded underside lining
· Reduce PSU acoustic noise with minimal airflow obstruction
· Unique SilverStone styling

Receiving the PP02 at our location, it came retail with SilverStone's intelligently designed packaging that offers a see through area to view the actual part. The rest of the packaging simply states the specifics that enthusiasts are generally interested in, along with Silverstone’s traditional coloring scheme but lacking all of the repetitive goblins and sexy figures that often over populate products designed for gamers. Inside of the container, we simply were left with the actual PSU acoustic cover and four mounting screws. Although the installation process is self-explanatory, on the side of the packaging are the basic procedures for a traditional ATX chassis as well as the information is available from SilverStone's website.
