The voltage rails on the SilverStone NightJar 450W were close to their theoretical ideals and were stable throughout testing. Along with that, we ran into no problems during testing and the fan-less power supply ran fine. Touching the power supply housing after it had been running for a while was warm, but still tolerable. The SilverStone NightJar 450W has a retail price of $200 USD, which is expensive for a lower-wattage power supply, however, it is silent, uses Active Power Factor Correction, 80 Plus Bronze Certified, supports SLI/CrossFire, and uses solid-state capacitors.

At the end of the day, we have no complaints about the SilverStone NightJar 450W besides its high price and would have no problems recommending this fan-less power supply to anyone looking at building a PC with minimal fans and does not require a higher-wattage power supply.
