have they made it so that this could be used under normal desktop/workstation usage? ie: how's the noise output on this thing?

Yeah I don't think this is really targeted at consumers. I would bet it's going to be fairly loud. This would be ideal for inexpensive mission critical workstations, etc, that use a conventional ATX form factor. You could use it for a server or whatever you want, but if it's not "shut away" someplace the noise could be a problem.



I highly doubt it. The whole point of this is to be redundant. It's a bit like RAID 1. The system could be running at full tilt using 700W and one side blows up, and it keeps chugging along. I suspect they load balance for OTHER reasons. Longevity/heat concerns, mainly. Both units will last longer if each one handles no more than 350W loads. A secondary reason for doing this might be efficiency gains.

It'll probably cost around $350 I'd assume. The thing is, it's intended for servers but is normal ATX form factors whereas servers are typically 1U or 2U, or if some average Joe is running a server it might be TFX or SFX. I am really wondering who the target purchasers are for this product, as jimmysmitty says. I guess for any people running a server in an ATX case, which does not seem too common, at least among the professional community I would think. Then again, who knows, this unit could, I assume, have some other purposes beyond the scope of my current ideas.

Very few servers are ATX tower based. Most are 1-3U based and they use the replaceable PSUs like the ones for this so I doubt that is the target. I would assume maybe workstations?

They should make hot swap single supplies for consumers. My power supply just died, and i had to take my water cooler out(connector on motherboard was under WC), cut my zip ties, and other crap in order to swap it out.
