As Philip said; HXi is the easy choice in this case. The boost in efficiency isn't worth considering the price difference.
The HXi is also a quieter unit.

The problem with evaluating a unit based on it's topology is that you don't get the full picture.

It also depends on the ambient temperature around the fan bearing. The high heat could have a negative impact on any fluid based bearing (Rifle, Sleeve, FDB etc) but in general the fan should have a...

A more attractive offer at $75; but I would much rather see Sirfa's build quality improve across the board before I could even recommend this unit.

Mostly dates back to the 80+ Bronze & 80+ Silver days (~07-12); as they were using some pretty decent Enhance platforms in their units. Though there was silly-buggery going on, as all of their HP...

Yep, the others are right and that's bearing noise from the ball bearings. It's quieter than some may be used to as it's a 2BB, like wise those Globe 2BB fans tend to have minimal bearing noise for...

I wouldn't recommend going any higher than 16AWG if you want cables that can make a bend around a cable-grommet neatly.

With that said, if you're doing something crazy like pre-routing all your...

M12II Bronze 750w is a solid unit, and would be enough. You really won't need more than a 750w; so I wouldn't bother looking at an 850w+ unit unless they happen to be on a special sale which makes...

Snow Silent Platinum or Leadex Platinum are the two best options from that list. They are both way overkill. If he can, he should probably consider saving some dosh on a PSU as he doesn't need top of...

You should never look at a company as a whole; but instead at the individual products. This isn't limited to power supplies but extends to most products out there.

Generally speaking, all that fancy blade geometry is...

It wasn't the final design last year, the external housing (https://youtu.be/Zxh4DPmNGpQ?t=26) looks to have changed some as well. They also didn't have a 450w model announced, just the 600w.

Well, EA-GREEN units based on the same design as the VPF-*** units are not listed as EOL on Antec's US site at least.
