Thanks again for the advice, ehume. These pins do their job beautifully. I may actually order more.

EDIT: I've got all of my fans running quietly when idling, but found my pc is still loud. After a little investigating, I found it to be my psu fan. It now seems to be the loudest part of my pc? Is this normal or am I making my psu work overtime/is it shot?

It's a known problem. That's why you check lots of reviews before you buy anything.

I'm realizing that now. It was heaped with praise when I was asking for building advice ( on ocn) so I didn't think to look further. Are there any silent psus you recommend? I was looking at the seasonic x750 as a potential if it goes on sale.

If you are a tinkerer you may want to look into changing out that fan. That is a good PSU and it is possible. Open it up and see how easy it will be. I have that same PSU and have opened it up a couple of times to clean it out. The fan connector is different. It's a 2-pin and physically smaller. I have seen "PSU Fans" for sale but they are rare to come with the correct header connector. You can cut a good portion of the wire off of the fan to be replaced and splice it into the new and quieter fan. I'd suggest a good high static pressure fan in that case and one which is quiet out of the box. There is no way of controlling the PSU's fan speed as far as I could see. I also saw it was a standard sized 120 x 120 x 25 mm fan.

BUT first... open that PSU up and see if it only needs a good cleaning. I believe you can oil the fan just like any other fan as well. That will help quiet it down a bit as well. My PSU has the original fan and it is dead quiet. Have had it going on 2 years or more now.

I have a Seasonic X-750 myself. Nice unit. No noise at first. But when the fan kicks on you can hear it. My Antec True Power New 750W - also made by Seasonic - has a fan that runs at very low speed. When it gets up to the level where the Seasonic X-750 fan would kick in, it's quieter.

But I'm no expert here. You might check SPCR.

Well, I just emailed Corsair asking if there was any way I could swap out my TX750 for an AX850 (+ the difference) as the noise is borderline unbearable, so with a bit of luck, I may be able to salvage this. According to SPCR, the AX850 is based on the X850 and is an editor's pick from SPCR, so it could be a nice unit.
