I think you'd be happy and content if months ago you took my advice and got the 1200P2. you went for a sale and got plenty watts for cheap. not that it's the same when talking about such good psus as these, but that is the classic recipe for disaster. in any case, hope your next one is somehow quieter. you haven't come close to maxing the unit's capacity with your setup anyway, add a third Titan X and hear what the fan sounds like then. you were told multiple times this psu was not at all quiet.
Does anyone read my post at all? You guys automatically jump on to me saying that I don't listen, or that the 1300G2 is the loudest.

In all my previous post, I state that I'm aware of the non Eco mode. I've also stated that I've had people tell me and tell me and tell me that this PSU is quiet, and others have told me it's loud.

I was just letting you all know that I was receiving a replacement, as the EVGA rep said its not normal to be that loud on idle.

Update* tested the RMA PSU, and all I can say is that I'm not satisfied with the PSU mainly due to the noise level at idle. It's louder than all my fans, even when those are running at 1000RPM. This PSU is still great, but I can't get over the loudness of it. Being that idle is my biggest "concern", it's hard to concentrate while doing homework or just searching the web and what not. If I wasn't a noise freak, I think I'd keep it, but who knows... I may still keep it, and save myself $100 instead of getting a different PSU. If I end up asking EVGA for a refund or something, I may just get the 1200P2 and leave it at that. Oh well.

When you have loud video cards even in ilde you dont really care if your PSU fan is on.
My Gigabyte Gaming G1 Windforce cards are so loud they drown out everything else, and i drown out the video cards with music anyway so the PSU fan could be 50 db for all i care i would not be able to hear it over the music.

Even the most powerful cards in idle, shouldn't be louder than the G2. Minimum fan speed for a 980 Ti G1, or a 970 G1 (which I conveniently own, and can comment on personally) are nowhere near the idle volume of the G2. It's a flawed product in that respect; perfect in everything but one category - idle sound. I guess you could say, use a Raspberry Pi or something to do my idle, low power activity, such as downloading Steam games, or running a low TDP video encode. It is a shame, the G2 is really good in everything else, apart from idle.

I have a 750 watt G2 and 2x Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming cards and no way in hell is the G2 louder then my G1 cards even with the fan in the G2 on.
The G1 cards drown out everything except my case fans on max fan speed.

If you want a more quiet PSU get a 550/650/750 watt G2 instead, the 1300 watt you have is massive overkill anyway.

The video cards drown out everything except my case fans on max fan speed.

that's 750 watts though, you probably aren't maxing it out and it has a lower fan profile and a slower fan than the 1000 G2 and 1300G2 (has a faster fan than the 1000 G2). your psu came out later and is a bit more refined in every area compared to those.

1300 g2 does have loud fan issues...

Everything is watercooled, and I want an ultra quiet PC. I'm not worried about the loudness when gaming, mainly because the sound will/can void out the PSU, as well as my other fans. But it's kind of irritating when doing homework and just searching the web. It's definitely the loudest part in my PC.

Also, I'm not in here trying to complain about the 1300 G2 because its a great PSU. It's just my personal opinion that the fan is too loud when idle.

I know 1300 is overkill, but I want a PSY that's at least 1000+ watts. My AX860 couldn't even handle my flashed Titan X's as tnwould reboot once the cards were under load. I could possible get away with 1000w, but I'd feel safer with 1200.

Basically, my rig is this:

Titan X SLI (1.274v)
4770k (4.5ghz @ 1.310v)

And two pumps, and 20 fans.

I may just ask for a refund and get a 1200 P2 and call it a day.

Also, just to clarify, the 1300 G2 box says ultra quiet fan operation... Something like that smile.gif

EVGA definitely makes claims on this and the 1000 G2's packaging and marketing pages that are... generous at best. they claim an intelligent fan, but it's not smart enough to go below ~1000 rpm when the pc is idling pulling 50-150 watts. these power supplies have become popular of late and after installing a couple dozen G2 psus, I've never come across a 1000G2 that was reasonably quiet at idle. the only 1300 G2 I've seen in person was the same. a shame really, some great quality psus with such a tedious issue. I wonder why they haven't made some changes to the fan profile in these yet.

Sounds like they should redesign the 1000+ G2´s to have a hybrid fan mode like the newer G2´s.

Hong Hua vs Globe fans. From JG reviews: EVGA 1000/1300 rebrands Hong Hua fans. SF has Globe fans on 1300 but Hong Hua on 1000. I don't think the fans differ much. EVGA gets what they order from SF. I bet enabling ECO is all but adding that switch which you can do DIY at home too unless the fan controller has it hard disabled in it's FW.
