The only other option is the Silent Wing 2's; but they hit that upper price bracket at the moment since NCIX US is the only ones to have them right now.

 

That'll change in the future, they were just the first at the moment.

Side comment to earlier PSU conversation, I am awaiting for Corsair to drop a 660i PSU. 760i is more than I need frown.gif

Cost reasons, they most likely won't.

 

That kind of DSP design won't scale down well. Your best hope would be an AX660 Platinum. Though, the XP660 from Seasonic would be the same thing. Even comes with all black cables like Corsair normally includes.

Maybe the only one choice left is only Noctua fans, i kinda hate it's color redface.gif, but if there is no other option....

I can't get gelid / cougar fans here, and gentle typhoon cost more than noctua NF-A14 (new noctua fan)
TY-140 can't fit (because of it's weird size).

Cost probably won't matter that much for me (as long as it is not 30USD++ fan tongue.gif).

More info, my case is NZXT 810 and the fans will be installed at the front of the case.

What make are the SP120 that make to much noise ?

Gotcha!

I thought perhaps the link integration to the newer Corsair would be a benefit, but I am not sure what benefits it really provides to a PSU to warrant the extra cost.

The one thing I for sure want, is a modular PSU at Platinum efficiency. I would also most likely be buying extension Bitfenix coloured cables, as the replacement cables from Corsair are not worth the steep price in my opinion.

Then as Tator said the Seasonic 660XP is your best option - $119 at Amazon.

NCIX's prices are competitive especially when things go on sale, BUT the shipping is ridiculous. $9 to ship a fan to me when I live within 100 miles. My hometown is actually <10miles from their warehouse and it's still $9 to ship a fan.

Have you ever shipped something through a post office? It's $9 no matter what you order. Amazon takes huge losses on the shipping in order to pull off the free shipping for customers. IIRC they had a $40mil net loss last year
