Silent PSU Needed; Help Please!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm in the process of making a new as silent as possible while still being powerfull build. I currently have a TX750 and It's one of the most loud parts of my current pc (specs in sig) so I really need a new one.

I need it to be able to support a single 6950, I won't be going corssfire at all.

I Had a TX750 and it was always quiet up until I had to clean out the dust. Buy a can of compressed air and see if it helps first. Spray into it from as many angles and openings as possible.

If it doesn't work, look at getting the best performing PSU: SuperFlower Platinum 550w. Fan only turns on when the internals get over like 60* C

There's no dust in it.
I can't get those SuperFlower PSU's anywhere in my country, Belgium, atleast that I know of.

What is available to you then? Feel free to post a web site you can shop from. I know French and I can navigate my way through a site in Dutch, so no worries.

I found a site in the netherlands that sells those Superflower PSUs, but they ask €180(+shipping) for it, which would come down to almost €200, am I getting ripped off?

Check out Enermax Modu82+, Modu87+ or Seasonic X series if they are present in Belgium.

Not necessarily, the Kingwin LZP-550 is an extremely high end unit, it sells for $150 in the US, so it wouldn't be surprising to see it around €180 in Europe, especially considering you have 20% VAT.

You can definitely get yourself an Enermax Modu87+ or a Seasonic X series unit. They are good, quiet units. Also look for the Lepa G500, it's a rebranded Enermax and should be cheaper.

I'll see if I can fit that LZP-550 In my budget; Else I'll get a SeaSonic X.
