Noisy Tacens Radix VI 750w

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well i had this PSU, it was around 50€, is not making a lot of noise, nothing unusual, but compared to others generic PSU or other NOX urano is making some annoying noise when the room is on silent.


Anyone else had this PSU or Radix V? any feedback on noise?i have a cm blade master fan, stock e5300 fan from intel and a 7200 rpm HD but with the pc on idle im sure the noise comes from the PSU

Are you sure the noise is coming from the PSU,? Tacens (which means SILENT in Latin) are normally very quiet.
I have bought dozens of their PSU´s and practically all of them have been whisper quiet, including the one in my sig.
I´ve owned the Radix III , IV and V series and love them. The only noisy ones I´ve had are ( when I say noisy I mean just audible )
Radix III 750w which was a faulty fan , this was after a few years use. The other is the SFX I´m using at the moment in the HTPC , understandable as it´s a smaller fan and in a very small case . these were also the only ones in the Tacens range made by R-senda. I have no idea who they are.

Your PSU is made by Channel well who used to make some of Corsairs, not sure if they still do. It is also only suppose to be 12db noise output.
It is possible you have a faulty fan because as I said these PSUs are normally inaudible.

Today i did some test and it seemed less noisy.

Fan speed is regulated by the temp or load?

Good to hear,
How is airflow in the case ? no PSU vents being blocked etc. ?

I think its from heat sensors attached to the heat sinks , don´t quote me.
( had to run off and do some reading )

Changing the voltages from one level to another requires various circuits that will lose energy as it gets converted. This means that the amount of power in watts used by the power supply will be greater than the amount of watts of energy that is supplied to the internal components. This energy loss is generally transferred as heat to the power supply and is why most power supplies contain various fans to cool the components.

So it looks like in general the fan speed is being regulated by the temps. .
