:( Now you are just being argumentative. I said just above that, the larger PSU may have larger heatsinks. And then I said, and you quoted me, it may get you lower fan noise.

Kinda sorta, but not necessarily. For one, that 25% is just an arbitrary number and may, or may not apply to any given PSU.

Instead, go get a 2 foot scrap piece of 6 - 8in wide board and put the computer on it so air can get underneath.

Yes, if the bond is broken, you need to replace the TIM on other heat sinks too. And since you "just happened" :rolleyes: to break the bond on the GPU, then you need to clean the mating surfaces and...

I tried a couple Corsairs based on the reputation of their PSUs at the time, but frankly, I was a bit disappointed. I have a Carbide 300r now and while it provides excellent cooling and has a nice,...
