    Default Formula Units 450w vs 650w

    How different are the 2, I can get both for the same price, just wondering if one is better not just in wattage.

    Why should that be the case? They are the same unit and Bitfenix only uses one Plattform for the unit...

    So for low noise, you'd want the 450W rather than the 650W, because I assume that they change the fan with the 650W model too like they did on the Whisper M. And that one increased the idle RPM from <500rpm to ~700rpm...

    Differences, if any, can be found here: https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php...fID=23&volts=1

    (Compare 'BF450G (Sample #2)' with 'BF750G (Sample #2)')
