Corsair VX450 vs Silverstone ST50F

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I wanted to get a silent power supply.Which is the best among Corsair VX450 and Silverstone ST50F ?

I had calculate with http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine , max 90% load all component is around 286w.So I think 450w is enough.

Anyone have those 2 power supply can give a few comment and review ? Can't find much on silverstone though.Building a silent pc.

I am really amaze with Dell Desktop pc which is totally near to silent.Anyone know why Dell Desktop pc and what brand of their fan using ?

Thank you :-)

I have Corsair 450 and i can say that it's a really silent PSU. Corsair gives at peak around 500w so you'll be pretty off your margin. I have never used a Silverstone so i can't comment on it.

I dug into it with a couple google searches and i think Delta makes most of Dell's PSU's.

The price for corsair is $13 more for 450w while silverstone 500w.

Too bad I can't find any delta fan around here.

Dell uses a few OEMs for PSUs. I see a lot of Delta and Lite-on and even Hipro in Dells. They all tend to be good enough. I would assume the Delta built/branded PSUs use Delta fans but you never know, not really sure about the rest.

SPCR has a good setup. Here's the acoustic data for the Corsair. I don't have any for that exact Strider, but this is close enough. The vx450 is the clear winner between the two.

I'm using a VX450 myself, and I'd highly recommend one. Corsair are also the only PSU manufacturer to offer a 5 year warranty, and there are plenty of good reviews online for it.

I have a Corsair VX450 and a VX400, both are completely inaudible with lower power draws (even a Q9400 + 8800GT). At higher loads, they both get louder, but this is only with SLI + OC'ed Q6600.

I don't think this applies, but I tried an Antec Basiq 430W and it was extremely quiet. Didn't hear anything from it even when right beside the PSU itself with my ear beside it.
