Default Seasonic Power Supply 3 Phase Fan

Does any other manufacturer do something similar to Seasonic's hybrid fan control where it has three phase?

- fanless
- silent
- cooling mode

I really like this feature but I also want a 480 - 580W with 80Plus Platinum rating.

My best bet is Antec EA-550 Platinum but I would like the hybrid fan control feature..

Anyone know?

I'm not sure, but these platinum psu's run so cool as it is that the fans don't ever have to really spin up. Case fans and video card fans will be noisier than the psu fan.

i suppose the video card will be pretty loud when it kicks in. I just wanted to minimize the noise level while maintaining higher efficiency without spending arm and a leg.
