Nice. Just wow... Thats compact. Top intake and front exhaust? All that air trough the PSU will make it heat up faster, more noise.
Where are you going to put the pump and res?

Where are you going to put the pump and res?

pump and res are visible better on like page 7? you can barely make out the pump behind the gpu in the 2 pics on this page. theyre located right between the mobo and the front rad.

yes some people have. i have had this PSU for at least 2, maybe 3 years and have run my gaming rig on it all the time. the ONLY time ive had the chirping people talk about is when i am running both prime95 AND furmark at the same time. as long as you keep the power draw reasonable it should be ok. ive seen people run an i7 and a 680 on this psu with zero problems.

The fan in the ST45SF-G starts quite fast at 7V 1800rpm, which is rated at 19dB @ 1m, and it ramps up linearly to 12V 3000rpm.

Many people have said they find the fan intolerably loud. Others have said it's not an issue. To me it sounds more like turbulent rushing air than actual fan hum. There is a youtube video unboxing review where you can hear it if you turns your speakers up. One person on OCN told that he RMA'd the unit to Silverstone and they said it was a problem with his box specifically, and he could get a replacement, but he ended up asking his money back and bought something else.

I've been following the whole "ST45SF-G has a loud fan" on several forums, maybe I missed something, but not yet seen anyone mention chirping. That was a problem with version 1.0 and 1.1 on the older bronze model, is it the gold model too? If you've got any chirping on this model you should contact Silverstone rep and tell him exactly which hardware you're experiencing this on (especially which motherboard and GPU).

Edit, Oh wait you are talking about the bronze model. Shadow_Foxx is asking about the gold one, pictured in this thread.

The bronze model sure had its problems but the new gold-rated model should be good. Can't hear it at all on my friend's HTPC-build that uses around 300W at load IIRC.

Let me clarify things a bit..

We are talking about this one
http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=342&area=en

ST45SF-G

Its the 450W Gold model, full modular... SFX Power Supply that is on the market for 2+ month.,.. (not years)

This model claims that the produced noise is 18db min...

But this is far from truth

http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1707073&page=8

you can see that the guy in here replaced the fan for this particular psu..

I have bought it cause it was the perfect addition for my prodigy,,,
but the produced noise really made me angry (cause i paid lots of money for it)..

I am talking about v1.00 btw.. i dont know if they have improved it by now...

Btw the fan spins at full speed all the time.... (no matter how many components i had connected)..

I did an RMA for this particular product and i am waiting for news...
