Seasonic SS-1000XP or other? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I'm not aware of the fan in my Seasonic ever coming on. I mean, I suppose it has. I've tried sticking my ear right up to the exhaust grill, feeling for vibration..nothing. Maybe they forgot to put one in there.

Acording to that site, they have tested the "Seasonic X-1050" to be among some of the more quiet in the 1kw group.
at 500w its 16 dBA. Its a shame they havent tested the newer Seasonic SS-1000XP

But if I mainly go after that site, the Seasonic X-1050 is the way to go?

for PSU reviews and silent computing you visit these guys.... and if you're strictly interested in noise output you look a dB ratings, "best fan" can mean a lot of things and noise output is just one of them.

SPCR doesn't seem to do much these days. I think their recommended fan list was updated 5 years ago. Surprised the site is still up.

No, the Super Flower Golden King is the way to go smile.gif.. there's no point in buying a 1KW PSU for a <500W system.. check out this review, this is the unit I'm talking about.

As for fans... this is a huge discussion, if I were to list every OEM, typical bearings, etc.. it will be a lot more confusing than it already is.
For example.. Delta and Sanyo Denki are the highest quality fans you'll find on a PSU, but neither of them are found on the quietest units you can buy... for example BeQuiet uses Protechnic fans for their E9 and P9 lineups and are among the quietest on the market... Super Flower uses Globe Fan and again are among the quietest on the market... Nexus uses ultra quiet sleeve bearing fans from Muhua Industrial.. so on and so forth.

The truth is, ive also had an "Seasonic X-750w" psu in the past. But that were too noisy. It got replaced by the "Enermax Modu-87+ 800 Watt". But since I neither got that one too (fan started to make some weird noises after +10 months use), I'm exicted to try something bigger. Since the way I see it. More watt = more headroom. And if you find a rare 1000w find, it'll close the gap with minimum noise

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1336/pg5/seasonic-platinum-series-1000w-power-supply-review-synthetic-testing.html

500w load, with only 15.0dBA. That should be unbeatable.

You can also have a look in this review http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=264 I want also to upgrade my psu, but i m more interested in the 850w model. I dont think there it will be any different than the 1kw model, but a trusted review would be nice. If only i could find it for sale in europe.

I've been looking at the 860w myself too. But since it lacks more reviews than its 1kw brother about the noise, I dont know if it'll behave the same, under same load circumstances.
