HuntKey HK500-13BP 500W Power Supply Review
And they came from the East, a thousand strong. Like a storm, they ravaged the lands. Unknown, exotic, different than ever been seen. One sat down at my table, and ate, drank and laughed. We’re all so different, yet all the same. HuntKey, a Chinese company let us test drive their 500W Power Supply

They surely know how to give good first impression:
Design is old, uselessly overpowered 5V with 12V being seriously underpowered and efficiency is low.
Real load on PSU is more inline with 350W because of low efficiency. (500W *0.7)
You must have overclocked those NoiseBlocker fans seriously to get that much overshooting consumption!
PS. Next time take photo of PSUs spec sticker from slightly oblique angle to avoid washing of highlights because of reflecting light of flash. (remember law of reflection)

First off all, read the review on the silverstone ST40EF,
and the stated ratings, and measurements there.
I clearly admit, this isn`t the most reliable way off measuring, but I`m working on that.
As for the fan`s, I`ve taken the liberty of verifying the stated power-consumption, by separately measuring all four fan`s using a single connector.
Free flow(free on desk): 2,3A combined(12,12V)=27,88W
Build in system: 2,71A combined(12,11V)=32,81W
Power-on peak:3,41A using peak-measurement.
As for the fan`s used, they are the SX2-Pro(Black)
and of a slightly different build than the ones on their site.
