Club for those with beastly mATX/ITX rigs. - Page 172

post #1711 of 13149
The 300W unit is loud under load. I have... 2 300W and one 450W unit to vouch for that. Though loud, is mostly air noise, and not fan noise. You also have to have a load roughly equivilent to an overclocked GTX460 crunching and an i3 530 dumping heat to reach that noise level. Flipping the PSU did reduce sound by a bit, however, I was afraid of letting stuff fall into the PSU...

It will take a 45nm quad + anything that draws more power than a HD5850/HD6870 to load the PSU past 300W or so. The amount before the "450W" starts exhibiting problems for many people. My GTX460/X3440 had a little bit of that. My HD5770/E7200 didn't show any issue whatsoever. GTX460/i3 530 was fine, too. GTX570/X3440 (No Turbo, No Hyperthreading) exhibited the issue in full, however. But if you aren't loading it all the way, up, and just want the extra headroom for other purposes (PSU longevity under load? Though quality is debateable), then you *shoud* be fine. The GTX570 has a current limiting system, too, so it should be even more immune from random power draw spikes that could otherwise be blamed on the GPU going over spec, however, it's not going over spec...


Though by virtue of their website, Silverstone can claim they intended for nothing more than a 95W quad + GTX460/HD5850 to work with the PSU, as that's the highest power draw GPU they have listed in conjunction with the PSU (via the SG05 page) on their site.

Mine is silent, perhaps you had a bad unit.



Nope, nothing to speak of. It'll fit a fairly large graphics card, too smile.gif

Man, I see you post everywhere. It's because of you that my next system will probably be ITX.

I beg to differ with ya on the noise, Ablear, but units vary tongue.gif (I'm 2 for 2 so far)

The hardest that I have pushed the ST45SF was with a mildly overclocked i7 860 and a heavily overclocked GTX460, which it didn't bat an eyelash at (of course, it's far from 450w under that type of load).

I get around tongue.gif I have a particularly strong interest in ITX systems, too smile.gif


Also, I shouldn't want to, but I do... To what do I refer? Buying a sexy Sapphire HD6870 tongue.gif I upgrade/downgrade/sidegrade way too often wink.gif

Heh, well, I used to think these units were quiet. Maybe I've just gotten more sensitive to that. Even a GT-AP14 at 12V seems noisey to me... My GTX570 is okayish at idle, and horrible at load. GTX460 TWIN FROZER isn't that quiet under load, either. However, a GTX460 crunching (BOINC) for several days really drew out the noise... (relative to "normal" speeds. I.E, my E7200+HD5770 setup draws no noise from the PSU).

And trust me, I have an i7 860s equiv (X3440 - counting the reputedly better binning of the Xeon range), and it was barely making the 450W tick with a GTX460 under benching. A stock GTX570 with a neutered X3440 (no HT, No Turbo) was already making chirps. It's not like I'm drawing this out of thin air frown.gif

FSX uses a lot of CPU.

You really need something in the 980X range to effectively max it out.

Its not FSX.

Its a remote controlled simulator, saw it playing on a Toshiba Satelite laptop with integrated intel HD4500.

Its pretty dam basic.

Definetly my ideas aswell, however...

Its $53 dollars more, and i have a strict budget of $300 dollars including shipping...

I could give them my RAM and get a Gigabyte motherboard.

Edit: i think ill have to make it fit, the IGP is 533mhz while the i3 is 733mhz
