yah the seasonic X fan wont even spin up unless it reaches something like 40%+ load. quality wise, you wont find many consumer grade PSU that are better. maybe something like the kingwin stryker is alittle better, but not by much. they are pretty much built like a server PSU.
Well I have asked myself what I will be doing, and it's pretty much 24/7 folding in the background on my X6, probably at 4.2... assuming I end up getting a really tough board, as that killed my last one. VRM failure on actively cooled 8+2
Just moved my folding over to OCN too
I -might- fold on both 470's but my now-2-year-old and some change card, probably has taken enough beating from F@H. I will update you with exact power draw when my card, motherboard and cooling arrive.
Have a wall meter (AVR) which displays realtime load on my desktop if I wish, so it's pretty easy.
EDIT: And I hate my hard drives going to sleep, and always run my fans full tilt. These BitFenix fans are really quiet, even off straight 12v. As far as the AP-30's go. NO. Hence the PWM mod, I can't STAND them at full speed LOL.Edited by mezmenir - 8/30/12 at 11:03am
