Quietest modular PSU? - Page 2

post #11 of 34
I really like the Ultra's looks and the flex force cables and it's a good performer, I just wish it had a few more amps to toss around. As it stands it can provide 840W of 12v, so that leaves 160W for 3.3v/5v. Who needs that much 3.3v/5v on a modern system?! I just feel kind of ripped off.

Granted, I'm running a few 1900RPM Slipstreams in my case, but this PSU performs very well, and noise is not even an issue with this thing. Go with a Decathlon, you won't regret it. I know I haven't.

Man, I didn't know you could get the Ultra 1000W X3 for so cheap, $190. If you think of it as a ~900W psu that's a pretty good deal.

Great unit, glad you're liking it.
The only reason that I got rid of it, CFX

My only cons with the DA series are the partial sleeving and the split PCI-E connectors.

Sounds like the corsair is the route to go then. force flex cables arent that much of a plus, but i don't know if i should even get rid of my 750w toughpower then, if its nearly as quiet as the seasonic.

hrmm well ill just replace my case fans first and go from there. reps to everyone who helped!

Corsair HX620 @ 50amps
I have the HX520 @ 40amps (all I need)

Well the Seasonic is probably a good bit quieter, the Anandtech review I listed earlier compared a Toughpower 650 and a Seasonic 650 (I know, not the same models in question but results should be similar) and it is clear by the graph on page 10 that the Seasonic is better in that aspect. Is it worth buying a new psu since you already have a Toughpower? I'd say no.

I wanted to sell my PSU since im never gonna use it and get a quieter one, but when i think about it i should replace my case fans first [ i dont need 65 cfm fans ] and see how quiet it is from there. i was hoping to sell my toughpower and go from there

Well if you do end up selling the Toughpower the Seasonic or Corsair I listed a while ago will be good for you. Heck even the Corsair hx520 and Seasonic M12-500 would be plenty for your system.

No votes for the Zalman? Those heatpipes remove enough heat for them to slow the fan down considerably. I'm kind of pissed I didn't think of the idea first.
