If you don't mind noise, then the PSU I have is on the top rung. Unfortunately, I mind noise, or I'd recommend mine.

P.S. I am selling a really quiet (as in less than 20 dBA) 140mm fan in the AeroCool Streamliner. You should take a look, Goat.
Im estimating that my rig puts about 275W on the PSU under full load, and the fan still doesnt become audible. Heh, maybe I have a defective fan controller.


I dont have the money right now, but I would be interested in that fan if theres no takers in a few weeks, once I start my summer job.

Any PC P&C PSU is going to be superb, so I wouldn't worry about it, I doubt anything is wrong. If you have other fans that are loud, it could affect it as well. For example, I just recently replaced my fans with Silenx fans, so my case noise dropped significantly meaning that my PSU seemed so much louder than it did before.

Yes. If a 750W PSU will cover your needs with some headroom, then I would pick the Silencer over the Toughpower, though be sure you don't mind a little bit of noise if the rest of your case is silent (HrnyGoat brought up a good point that if the rest of your case is not whisper quiet your PSU may sound silent regardless).

I am not sure when this will happen, but PC P&C will be releasing their PSUs with 8-pin PCI-E connectors. Right now they only have 6-pin PCI-E connectors. The Toughpower has 8-pin and 6-pin.

P.S. Sorry for my rude comment, Goat. It was uncalled for.

I know what you mean. My 510W TurboCool was irritatingly loud under full load, and that was with a noisier case as well.

Also, don't go with the 750W and 850W Toughpower PSUs, as they didn't get the good review that the 1200W version did.

Finally, calling the "Silencer" silent is a misnomer. It is much quieter than other PC P&C PSUs, particularly the 1kW, but it is still rated at well over 30 dBA, even on low loads.

Look at reviews on sites like Jonny Guru, as I'm sorry to say that a lot of people don't exactly know what they're talking about, so you may not be getting good advice.
The 750W Tough Power got excellent reviews from Jonny Guru. It was like a 9 point something.

You are correct, my bad. I was thinking of the tiers, where the Toughpower 1000W and 1200W are on a higher tier than the 750W and 850W PSUs.

Why such a large discrepancy? If 750W will more than cover you, then why go all the way up to a 1200W Toughpower? Makes no sense to me...

well a few reasons.. One is there will be soooo much headroom that i really do think it will future proof me a bit.. Number two is im like you in that im a sound freak... I like it silent.. Im having a chiller built just so i will have no fans running in my system-- trying for silent... I have read a few people saying their 750 silencer-- isnt silent... and 3 is i like the modular cables(well close to modular lol)... The other thing is the toughpower wont use more power then the pcp&c(the system will use the power it needs and that is all that is used) and the toughpower is also more efficient then the pcp&c.

Ok so sounds like i have made up my mind-=- but the thing that pulls me back to pcp&C is the rep that they have earned-- and the bad or medium rep of the thermalake... Though it sounds like that rep is starting to change with the good reviews from people and reviewers..
