TX650 v2
http://www.corsair.com/us/enthusiast-series-tx650-v2-80-plus-bronze-certified-650-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html

Does TX650 v2:
a. Have the fan that only turns on at 30% load?
b. OEM seasonic?
c. Have same specs listed from overview and download tab of TX650: http://www.corsair.com/us/power-supply-units/tx-series-power-supply-units/tx-series-tx650-80-plus-bronze-certified-650-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html

A: No
B: Yes, but it's just a SeaSonic S12II (nothing special)
C: It's different

I have a question though: why are you looking at the TX650 V2? What will you be powering? When it comes to Corsair's PSUs, you can usually find a better PSU for about the same price, or you can find an equal PSU for less. Usually.

Was most interested in 0rpm fan at <30% load. No noise for low load/idle/basic computer task. Quiet when gaming. 650W good for next GPU upgrade in 3yrs time.

Oh. Well, you're not going to hear the fan at such a low speed anyway unless your ear is like a centimeter away from it.

Are you planning on having two high-end video cards in the future, or just one?

I bought a ocz zt 650W which promised whisper/ultra quiet. It was easily audible with tower an arms length distance. Ultra/whisper quiet for me would be the sound of the stock fan of the i5 haswell processor at idle. tdp of current gpu is 140w, future gpu i get may be 240w tdp that's how i plan this psu.

The OCZ ZT is known to have a loud fan at times, so that's normal for that series of PSUs.

So, single video card from here on out?

i'm using the seasonic S12 (not the "newer" S12II and i can tell you that even an older generation of the PSU you are looking at can not be heard from outside the case. as load increase, other noises in the machine are much louder then what the PSU can put out so it's still can't be heard. and i've owned this PSU for almost 7 years and this is the 3rd machine i've built using this PSU biggrin.gif if you are that paranoid, you can always spend alot more money and simply buy a fanless PSU in the 1st place biggrin.gif

Some TX650 V2 I've received (for client's builds) were noisy..very noisy when compared to the same V2 I used to order normally for gaming builds. Noise was really different for the different one's I received. Now I've moved to seasonic m12II for any client's pc.

Even if you plan a "240 tdp card" for future, you don't need the 650w unless you're going to use 2 of those. But even so 650w will be more power than what you'll use.

I've had two TX650V2s and the fan did turn off at low loads for both of them. However the first one I had came with a broken fancontroller which made it noisy as hell (fan would rapidly turn on->off which made a lot of noise), while the second one was noisy under load (clicking sounds and fan noise) and also turned out defective. The first problem seems to be a common defect for this PSU, but not all of them have it obviously.
