I personally run a APC SMT1000 myself, it's a nice unit, but it's definitely on the expensive side for retail price. Best if you can somehow find a refurbished or used unit where you can get it for...

I gotta say this made me laugh out loud literally. :D :fire:

But on a serious note, silent FDB's ftw, I'd love to see that become standard in high end psus that doesn't require extreme cooling.

You know the sad thing. I think the RM is perfectly fine for most people. It just has a really bad rap due to a wave of negative reviews on the first edition of it. But it's a low noise moderately...

Isn't the answer just maybe. All depends on each psu family and controller. There's no black and white here and probably never will be.

Pretty dumb to call cheap Antec or Corsairs garbage. For the most part they will do exactly what you want within specification. Just because they use some cheap caps and cheaper technology doesn't...

The Seasonic G-650 and Corsair HX650 should be very similar since the HX650 is seasonic oem based off the G-650 model anyways. Either of those would be great choices depending on the prices in japan....

There's plenty of people out there who could use some cement + gluing to remove their whine also.

Sounds to me like the more glue the better. Coil whine has been a huge issue for anyone who's hunting for silence. Probably the reason why people complain about seasonics since they probably didn't...

You know the greatest irony of this whole thread? He complaints about 11.56v (if this was even measured properly), which is completely in spec for the 12v rail anyways. I mean I'd understand if it...

Ouch that [H]ardocp Review. I gotta say the buzz around the RM series is pretty ugly so far, with all the talk about poor caps before reviews even came out, then there's some pretty big build/fan...

The other point of bs to me, many power supplies work fine on any ups. It really doesn't matter if the ups says passive pfc or not, it's more a matter if the psu can handle stepped sine waves....

Unfortunately you missed the amazing deal on the Seasonic plat 760 about a week ago. It was $100 with rebate at the time. Considering that, I'd recommend getting the 660, that would have been my own...

This is exactly why my first line about psu purchasing is. You can get a HIGH QUALITY 400w that can work with almost any single gpu system. Keywords being "high quality". Aka Antec, Corsair,...

Aren't you glad to have a psu that actually protects itself from dying? Sounds like the psu should be fine and even if it does fail in the future, I'd expect it'll shut down safely over anything...
