EVGA SuperNova G2/G2L/G3/P2/T2 and Super Flower Leadex I/II Owners Club - Page 381

post #3801 of 3807
It's evening now, and temps have dropped inside the case after doing what Gille suggested. Whether that's Gille's credit or just the fact that it's cooler now, I don't know.

Can I turn ECO mode off while the PC is running, and how will it alter the fan profile? I planned on getting a fanless PSU and giving my little brother the G3 unit for his new computer with much more airflow.

A fanless PSU is just going to dump all the heat its making into the rest of the case which means all your other fans are going to have to pick up the slack
So a fanless PSU will end up making making just as much if not MORE noise

Unless you have a case with very good airflow a fanless PSU is not something you want
As for the G3 turn off eco mode and just let the fan run all the time

If the noise bother you there is the older G2 which is more quiet.

It feels pretty silly for me to go for an older model unit IMO. Albeit, I've not been very impressed with the acoustics of my G3. For a better idea of my airflow setup, you can have a look at my post a page or two back.

Let's hope it worked.

To me it looked like all the "airblow" in your case was probably causing recirculation of warmer air.

Imo, its always good to try to get a smooth airflow "path" going in your case with as close to neutral pressure as possible, slightly positive is preferable if you want to keep dust out.

Maybe you should consider either a unit with higher efficiency or a higher wattage unit
Maybe the EVGA P2 or the T2 or the Seasonic Prime P and T as all those are more quiet.

But wouldn't making my Noctuas work harder be preferred over the fan on the G3 or am I missing something?
