Works, but loud
This review is from: iStarUSA CP-02040 20+4Pin 400W Single 2U Switching Server Power Supply
Pros: Well constructed, low cost, easy to install. Very responsive technical support.
Cons: Excessive fan noise. The single internal Adda AD0612HB-A70GL fan is 36 dB/A and the PS construction makes it even louder due to high inlet flow noise and chassis acoustics...this is one of the loudest supplies I've ever heard.
Other Thoughts: I replaced the fan with an IPC-606010 (30dB/A) and it is much quieter - note: doing this voids the warranty and you should not even open the power supply unless you really know what you are doing (are handy with a soldering iron and able to safely work on high-voltage AC circuits). iStar should note the noise level on the datasheet because it is so unusually high and/or consider using a quieter fan...until they do so I'm unlikely to purchase an iStar power supply again.
