Close second is the Corsair HX850.

The Corsair, but they're all pretty loud.

If you want a quiet 650w unit you'd have to look at Enermax, Lepa, Super Flower, & BeQuiet! offerings.

Do yoy have anything better to offer from here:
1.http://www.computerbeast.gr/catalogu...art=0&limit=50
2.Τροφοδοτικά των κατασκευαστών XFX, Thermaltake, Enermax, Corsair, OCZ, CoolerMaster, Silverstone, Seasonic, Be Quiet, FSP, Lepa | Skroutz.gr

My budget is 90-100€.

In terms of performance and price per watt, nope. I'd choose either the Corsair or the Thermaltake.

The Thermaltake & Corsair use the same fan but each has a different fan profile. Still at full load, they'll be equally as noisy.

The thermaltake is modular and performs on par with the Corsair in most regards though.

Hmmm... i'm still confused. I've been reading many controversial comments. Take a look at this. http://www.overclock.net/14055355-post3.html
What do you think? I'm leaning towards XFX.

The only difference between the Corsair & XFX units is the fan & number of PCIe cables.

The XFX's fan does have a tendency to make a clicking noise which can be more annoying than the sound of air moving.

The Thermaltake unit is modular, has 4 PCIe cables, and the same fan as the Corsair and is more efficient.
