    Default Seasonic Focus Noisy?

    Hi, I'm planning to buy the Seasonic Focus Gold Plus 550w has my psu, my questions are:

    Is this unit noisy?

    What's the difference between this one and the g series 550w one?

    I've got one running in the following system:

    Sapphire R9 280X Vapor-X Tri-X
    Thermalright Macho HR-02 on a FX 8320 @ 4Ghz
    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX (those three 140mm fans run @ 7V VCC)
    One 3,5" HDD, one 2,5" HDD

    In Idle I can't spot a difference in the two modes with the fan turned off or on even when the rest of the system is cooled passively only, with heavy load (as heavy as load can get with these components for the PSU ) all the other fans are ways too loud to let me identify the power supplies fan out of the noise while the system itself is pretty silent IMHO.

    I've never had a G-Series PSU running in this computer but a few others already and I'd recommend this PSU to nearly everyone when it comes to fan noise.
    If the fanspeed of the 550W model behaves like the one from its big brothers, just at more than ~80% load the fan might get notalby louder.

    The 550W model is way better than the G 550 in this regard. At high loads and medium ambient (26 °C) it is even quite silent.

    Well, that shouldn't be hard at all...
    The G-550 is one of the worst 80plus Gold units in terms of noise/fan RPM there is...
