BeQuiet! and Enermax, are the top dogs brands in Germany. And the BeQuiet! P9 series, have some of the lowest ripple seen on any highend PSU.

And I checked the internet, the BeQuiet is more silent than the Seasonic x.

If you're not going to listen to us, why request help or advice in the first place? The Seasonic is FAR more superior to the BQ.

Edit: And no, the BQ does not have the lowest ripple seen on any high end PSU, nor is it even a high end PSU in itself. It's average at best.

Link to where you found ripple graphs, as well as a genuine review?

I've found 3 reviews on the BQT 850w (2 foreign)
All of them were piss poor, blog-quality reviews.

Here I will show you the true power of the X-850w:
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Seasonic-X-Series-850-W-Power-Supply-Review/1169/8

82% efficiency@ 998w, that's pretty much pulling loads comparable to a 1k PSU.
PF at .98

The BQT in a couple reviews listed at .95 PF, and had so so efficiency, and in one test it failed the 80 PLus Gold at 50% load.

Be quiet is a popular brand in Germany because it's pushed a lot by retail and online shops. They sell a lot of nice looking yet average (quality and performance wise) stuff, and all the people go nuts about them because "HURR DURR THEY'RE GERMAN DERP THEY'RE SILENT". They're actually quite expensive when compared to what you get, although not as much as with their fans and - recently - their CPU coolers (15€ for an average fan, LOL! lachen.gif )
There are a lot of companies like this here in Germany, and they sell a crapload just because the people here are attracted by fancy names and designs, high prices and this "silence" thing above everything.
Hell, I saw people recommending Be quiets over Gentle typhoons on radiators because "they produce less dBs!"
In very few words, it's a bit like Apple.



And lol, "more silent PSUs".

LOL look at this guy, he knows what he wants and still asks what brand to get. What a fool.

Put on your big boy pants and buy what you want.

Uh, if quiet operation is a priority, that's legit. I don't know what the hate is about. Be Quiet! sells mostly decent-quality FSP units tuned for lower acoustic noise. Not every product is good or a good value, but that's a different issue. And not every product is that quiet. But low noise has a market, just like how obnoxiously gaudy PC cases have a market. Everyone has different priorities.

Despite the reputation, there are definitely quieter PSUs than the Seasonic X-Series / Corsair AX at higher loads (particularly in a hot box, though that's not applicable here):
http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1203-page4.html

I mean, it's probably not going to be nearly as good as the Seasonic X Series in electrical performance, but it's 50 Euros cheaper too. You guys are acting like the price was the same. I don't know if there's a review of the Be Quiet! unit in question though.

Locking as it sounds like this matter is decided ... also to avoid a potentially endless flame-war.
