I know, and they bechmark GPUs in totally CPU bound areas in Skyrim etc, but the guy who does their PSU testing isn't the same guy who benchmarks CPUs/GPUs. By your idiot logic we should discredit every review site on the net, because at one time or another they've all done something stupid, or had one incompetent individual working for them.

Really, your telling me CPUs should be benched at low resolutions? You're preaching to the choir mate. Brutuz is the one you want to be talking to about that.

Also, (original) HX750 was not really considered that quiet. What's sold now as HX750 is a different power supply, one that's 80 plus gold and turns the fan off at low loads. It's a different design, arguably a slight downgrade in some ways but an upgrade overall I guess. So no, you can't get another of what you currently own.

I'd just go Seasonic G Series. e.g. SSR-450RM. It's quieter than HX unless you push it, which you won't. Also cheaper and smaller. There are plenty of other high-quality alternatives too.

Well, darn. So 450 would be where to start, then. Thanks for the info; I actually think my HX750 is quiet, but it's in a HAF 932 with 440000 fans so who can tell.

Just a note, I went with that exact model and you're right, it has worked out perfectly. +Rep

They haven't done a decent review in years with the exception of frame pacing with ati gpus. And their forums are dead.
