what's the amperage on the +12v rails?
post #12 of 31
Thread Starter 
18A on each of the 4 12v rails.

And just to make sure it wasn't the load on the PSU as been suggested. I disconnected everything from it except 1 HDD, the motherboard connectors, the video card, and 1 optical drive. The fan is still freaking loud. I think it's just the fan to be honest.

Just be careful opening a PSU. There are capacitors in there that can deliver a lethal shock. They really should not be messed with IMO.

My PSU fan is silent...quietest fan in my case by far. When i shut down my PC the PSU fan runs for a minute or so for some reason i can't hear it unless i'm right up next to the case.

KamuiRSX, have you asked around and talked to other Thermaltake owners? Did you give Thermaltake a call to ask their opinion? I'm not sure what kind of warranty you have on that PSU but I'm sure if you it's opened you would void your warranty. Amperage wise your PSU has enough. I did the math and it's around 41amps on the 12volt rail. Total wattage is 500w.

Good luck

I'll offer my opinion on Thermaltake PSUs. I own two, one of which I bought as a refurbished item.

I find their PSUs to be very quiet and, so far, very reliable. The refurbished unit I bought is deployed in my Crossfire rig using 2 X1950XTs, which are very power-hungry. It's a ToughPower 700W (I'm guessing it's just like yours, in fact).

Possibility: Fans get noisy if they are running out of balance, so it's possible that the noise you hear is from an imbalanced fan. I'd consult the manufacturer on how to fix the situation (as opposed to you fixing the fan; as ericod suggested, opening a PSU is potentially lethal). Hopefully they'll take good care of you.

Good luck!

Yeah I got the 700w Toughpower Modular

Thermaltake says that I can send it in to them and they'll replace the fan but because the fan isn't technically broken, I'll have to pay to get it replaced with a different fan. Not exactly what I wanted to hear. However, once I send it to them, if there is a discovered defect within the fan, it will be fixed free of charge according to the warranty.

Too many ifs for me. I dunno. I think I'll just do a little searching around and see if I can find myself a 1000w Modular PSU and if I can then I'll go ahead and send this one to TT. Thanks for the replies.

Tell them that's bogus. If the fan was noisy like that from the start, and that from your research their fans shouldn't be making noise like that, then it's clearly a defective product and that you, as a consumer, have every right to expect that what you buy isn't defective at all.

Tell them nicely that you're able to tell lots of people of how they (the company Thermaltake) treated you. Suggest that if they treat you badly, then bad publicity spreads plenty fast. It's a fair tactic if the product you bought with good money has a manufacturing/parts defect.

KamuiRSX, just FYI that PSU is not 700w...that's just marketing. It's a lot lower then what you think. Besides even that is more then enough wattage for your setup. Don't waste your money on a 1kw PSU. If it were me, I would return the Thermaltake and purchase a Corsair HX or VX series PSU. Those are quality built (seasonic/cwt).

Good luck and I hope they replace the fan for free
