    Came back after a long time hunting for the "quietest PSU" as my trust old one was making quite a racket. I'm pretty happy not hearing the G3!

    Would you recommend disabling anti-surge even if it almost never trips (like twice in 3 years for me)? Is it a gimmick?

    My evga 650 g3 has the same thing, it's not only stupid and annoying, but 10x more difficult to maneuver correctly into the plug, and you gotta put them in one at a time? Some one needs their iron...

    Lol I meant that it would be foolish for me to add unnecessary heat to my rig for a decibel change I wouldn't notice.

    One of the reasons I went with this unit was the ability to keep the fan on, a PSU seems like a foolish source of a lot of heat, especially for an inaudible difference to my rig. I've never even...
