    No, I'm not. It's subjective and the majority are fine with the noise levels of those units. If they weren't, those units would have been known as "loud". And they clearly aren't. A Turbo-Cool 1200...

    Many PSU's are quiet enough to be not heard over any other part in your machine, thus being silent in a way.

    I don't care about what the people in where you live want.

    To you. That's subjective.



    So we're in agreement then? Because I said the HCP was "head to head" with the AX in price.

    Do I need to address that around the same price, the HCP was easily a...

    From what I saw in the past years about both units, yeah. If you haven't seen as much as I did on the subject, then your definition would obviously be different.

    You're in the minority, it's not "quite a few people". Most people that bought the HX750 were happy with it's fan noise and quietness. The people you're referring to are silence freaks like yourself...

    Well, uhm, yes. I don't recall Toughpower XT 775/HX750 being a "loud PSU". A Turbo-Cool 1kW or a ProXStream would be a loud unit as they have significantly loud fans even at idle. The Toughpower...

    I did, in fact. He was asking for a PSU choice and I suggested that the Fortress 450 would be a superior choice to both the NeoECO and the EAP.

    Up until 800W the San Ace doesn't go beyond 1000 RPM (the fan uses the same housing, bearing and blades as lower powered San Ace's, which are quiet, high quality fans). So you can't really call this...

    A shitty cap is a shitty cap, it's still creating a potential failure point.

    Besides, it doesn't change the fact that the NeoECO (or any other S12/M12 II unit) isn't worth it at this rate.

    No, it wasn't. All M12/S12 II units (including the TX650) are quiet regardless of the loading levels. You're thinking of the TX850 and the TX950, both of which get loud under high heat/high loading...

    Unless modularity is a must, you should go with the TX v2 over the M500. TX v2 is independantly regulated, has a double-layer PCB (M500 is single layer) and has DC-DC converters over M500.

    Look, internal short circuits happen extremely rare. Like once in a few years in every one unit out of a few thousands. You don't have to worry about whether a unit has OCP or not.
