If you've never heard of TACENS, don't worry, you're not alone. I too never heard the name before Computex. Normally I'd just walk on by a company I never heard of, but I was drawn in by what I saw. It turns out that TACENS is a European brand and only deals in Europe and Asia - no wonder I never heard of them. After being shown around the booth by Miguel Diaz, General Manager Spain branch office, I sure hope they get an American distributor soon! That dream may not be so far fetched - TACENS is actually the sister-brand of Aerocool. Whereas Aerocool is geared toward gamers, offering cases, PSUs and fans, TACENS is more mainstream with a wider product range, offering not only cases, PSUs and fans, but also cooler and accessories. TACENS is a Latin word that means silent.
TACENS was showing off two new power supply series, Valeo III and Radix IV. Valeo III is the third generation of TACENS PSUs featuring the patented TACENS 0dB Technology. This technology makes it so the ultra-silent 139mm fan only spins at high temperatures or high system load, and features external heatpipe cooling. The Valeo III series comes in 500W, 600W and 700W versions. All three are 80 Plus Bronze, dual-rail, modular, and employ TACENS' exclusive full anti-vibration system.
Radix IV is the fourth generation of one of the top selling PSUs in Europe. The Radix IV series comes in 450W, 500W, 600W, and 700W. The 450W version features an ultra-silent 120mm fan, while all other versions have an ultra-silent 139mm fan. All versions feature anti-vibration pads for the fans, as well as fan speed control. The higher-end models feature high quality non-modular black-sleeved cables and TACENS' exclusive full anti-vibration system.
If you're looking to power your notebook or netbook, then TACENS has you covered there as well with the Oris Dual 100. The Oris Dual 100 is a universal notebook AC adapter that's compatible with major notebook brands (several adapters included) and can be used for LCD monitors as well. It supplies up to 100W power with dual input - AC and Car 12V line. There's also a USB power supply port for all USB devices.
