Well, it's hard to explain... All fans/PSUs will make some noise at full load. Some of them though have noise that is "nicer" and some make a whine or something which is very annoying. At less than 500W (your rig will pump about 300-450W at load), the TPN is absolutely quiet and the Thermaltake might be but I don't know. The thing is, the TPN makes a "cleaner" noise under load. Anyway, the TPN and the TT are both good PSUs apparently but personally, I'd get the Antec cause their recent PSUs are almost all flawless. You can't say the same about thermaltake. They did stuff like taking a 300W PSU and selling the same unit as a 300W, 350W, 450W and 475W unit without changing anything except the price. If you want to learn more about PSUs and make an educated choise yourself, I'd recommend you read this:

http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...ml#post9110838

The parts I really recommend you read are the ones about the manufacturers and the ones explaining efficiency/ripple/voltages. Then, read reviews about both PSUs (which you will understand better because of these articles) and make the choice. The best websites for review are (in my opinion) Jonny Guru and overclocker's club. Another thing you could do is PM Phaedrus or ask him in his Q&A thread. He's a genius regarding PSUs and he'll make the right choice for you if you're not sure, that's guaranteed.

Quietest would be the Seasonic x750 (fan spins at 50% load). Or you can get a KINGWIN STR-500 500W (can do 600 and is fan less and has 93% efficiency at 500 and at 600 89%)

ONLY would I choose those for ABSOLUTE silence.

@ OP, I've seen the other thread and I know what this is all about, budget constraints etc.. ignore the 'let me post something totally irrelevant in your thread because I have no ******* clue about anything discussed here' crowd..

The HX650 is a poor deal.. is a discontinued platform by Seasonic, S12E more precisely.. the Antec TPN offers better performance and efficiency at lower prices.. still Seasonic, newer platform.. but the TPN and the HX come with 120mm fans, which are noisier at any load than the Toughpower XT.. essentially making the XT x75 the obvious choice.. and no, you don't need 775 watts, but this unit is priced better than the 675W one and the 575W is not listed
BTW, I just found that:

Ends up you're totally wrong. Thermaltake being the OEM, I can't recommend it at all. If CWT made it, maybe but not if it's Thermaltake.

Also, what case do you have? If it's a Antec 1200, Antec P1xx or a DF-85, it will fit this:

At that price, it's the best bang for the buck on this website but it only fits antec full towers.

I enjoy your enthusiasm but you have no idea what you're talking about.. Phaedrus generally does, in which case I suspect that phrase is taken out of context, if it's not then he's wrong

@ OP,
The Antec TPN are custom Seasonic SS-xxxAT, excellent PSUs, great regulation, great ripple suppression, they even do ok in cross loading(for Seasonic).
The ThermalTake XT x75 are also excellent PSUs, they use a higher end platform and are slightly more efficient, but most importantly the are quieter than the TPN.

My advice, if you need to stick to that particular shop, go for the XT 775, it has an excellent price and it will allow you to add another 560Ti if you so chose later on.. if you're willing to buy from a different location you should be able to get a lower output, quieter unit for less.

Just how hard is it to install a PSU? i wish i knew how to install - there's just too many connections and wires going everywhere....

I'm trying to stick to Centrecom (where i got the PC built) so at least i hope they won't charge me the install/labour price. If i buy elsewhere i have to either pay install/labour or do it myself (which is i think a bit of a hit/miss affair since i've never done such a thing before). It might be best then to get the same technician to put the PSU in then.

I have the Kingwin rebrand version and the fan hasn't turned on once since I've had it. I powered two GTX480s in SLI @750 core with this puppy and it didn't blink.

Super quiet.
my first thoughts as well, the one I put in an Phenom X6 rig in Jan. has never turned on either.

I have a Antec Def Con 35 (DF-35) - it could fit but i'm not sure.....though i like the look of it - especially the fan that pushes the air from the side (rather than from the top).

You stick wires here and there and you're done...

Anyway for COMPLETE silence get a fanless psu. The lowest noise levels would be Be Quiet! PSU's. They are decent but not something really recommended unless you REALLY want silence.

As for you're current PSU it's a wonderful unit. The toughpower unit's are for the most part at least DECENT. But you're unit is a very good one.
