From what i have seen the psu don't actually make the fan go full speed, it take it around 5v. Taking that into account the real need of the fan is way less than the specs of the fan, the specs and the Noiseblocker running 60-70% speed with enough for it. smile.gif

Surprised @Aibohphobia didn't catch this!

Do not use that fan with the SX600-G. The start voltage is 6V. The PSU won't even start the fan until max load of your PC, and even then it will be pushing far too little air.

I know, thats why i won't be using the 2 pin fan connector of the PSU, I'll connect the noiseblocker fan directly to 12 v and use a resistor to lower the RPM to make it silence. It will be turned on always but i prefer a silent fan that's always on that a noisy as hell fan that is only off the first 3 minutes... biggrin.gif

Oops my bad doh.gif

I only saw SX600-G and PC-P fan and panicked and didn't read the rest of what you wrote. Sorry!

How do you all find the 600W SFX in comparison to the 500W SFX-L psu?

I'm thinking of choosing one or the other for an RVZ02 build that'll include an i5-4690k and a 390 gpu, so the extra 100 watts will be incredibly useful (especially if I decide to overclock), but I see a few posts in this thread from people saying the 600W SFX PSU is loud.

Thoughts?

Hey guys, I'm planning on getting the SX500-LG for my new mini ITX rig. On the front page of this thread, it states that the SX500-LG comes with the PP05-E cable kit. Is this true? I was going to order the SX500-LG with the PP05-E cable kit but if it is already included there is obviously no need to order the cables. Thanks! thumb.gif

Loudness is very subjective. I find it intolerable but several people have reported they can't hear the SX600-G over their other components. So it depends.

The cables it comes with are the same flexible, ribbon-style cables as the PP05-E but the lengths are a bit different. I believe the stock cables are mostly a bit longer than the PP05-E set.

Thanks for the reply. Any idea how well the 'semi-fanless' feature works? I have no problems with my case being louder when its under load as long as it is silent when idle or when doing very small tasks like web browsing.

They are different in length but roughly same. Some cables are shorter, some are longer. Also, number of connectors as well as placement are different too.

Here are the cable lengths for the PP05-E
Quote:
1 x 20+4pin ATX connector (350mm)
1 x EPS/ATX12V 8pin(4+4) connector (350mm)
2 x PCI-E 8pin(6+2) connector (350mm)
2x PCI-E 8pin(6+2)+PCIE 6Pin Connector (350+50mm)
1 x two (2) SATA 90˚connectors (350+50mm)
1 x two (2) SATA 180˚connectors (300+150mm)
1 x two (2) 4pin +1 x Slimline SATA connectors (300+100+100mm)
1 x two (2) 4pin + floppy connectors (350+100+100mm)
1 x three (3) SATA 180˚ +1 x Slimline SATA connectors (300+150+150+150mm)

Here are the cables that come with the SX500-LG PSU
Quote:
1 x 24 / 20-Pin motherboard connector(300mm)
1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector(400mm)
2 x 8 / 6-Pin PCIE connector(400mm / 150mm)
3 x SATA connector(300mm / 200mm / 100mm)
2 x 4-Pin Peripheral connector (300mm / 200mm)
1 x 4-Pin Floppy connector(300mm / 200mm / 200mm)

I don't know if the fan spins or not. I have never checked it. But I do not have any noise issues what-so-ever with the PSU. And I have installed it so that it intakes hot air inside the SG13 case and pushes is out the back. It probably doesn't run in fanless mode in my case.

Ah, okay thanks! I guess there isn't really a point in purchasing the shorter cable kit since they are roughly the same in length. thumb.gif

This piqued my interest. What are the drawbacks of using something like the SX500-LG on an Corsair air 240 instead of an atx model like the Corsair cx500m, other than the price. biggrin.gif
