have you ever thought of modding the PSU by swapping the fan?


when thinking of cases with noisy fans, the first thing that pops into mind is swapping them with quieter ones... so.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Not a smart idea if you're in warranty still. You also run into the risk of running a fan that may spin too slowly or scales with voltage in such a way that it makes the unit run hotter than before which could pose a problem for its reliability. If there is still a charge in the unit, you also run a risk of getting shocked which could be fatal.

It's better to just rma, sell for cheap and pick up something that will work better for your needs. Or if the unit worked fine before exhibiting problems, then forgo the selling step. Alternatively, you could still purchase a new one and keep the rma in the closet as a backup (what im doing). You lose some money, but warranties for these new psus are really nice and long now.

Also what I'm thinking about right now, I'm eyeing a 750 or 850W EVGA G3 right now...

What PSU should I go with if I'm looking at upgrading to a 2080Ti in the future? I guess 750W is enough, but which model?

true, its not normally done under any circumstances, plus if the issue is a defect then RMA is always the first solution.

though modding is fun in it's own way, and results can be better than expected too.

If you want a quiet PSU a G3 is the last thing you want

The Seasonic Focus is a better option (unless you have an Asus GTX 970 Strix or a Vega 56/64) or the Seasonic Prime Ultra

Why do you criticize people for their purchases?
I bought my Seasonic Platinum 1000W for a system that didn't even draw 500W back in 2012. Got flamed hard for it and had to put some uncultured jerks on block for insulting my purchase with my money. Still using that 1000W right now with my 9900K and Vega 64. 12v, 5v and 3.3v DO NOT MOVE at load from idle. I like to buy quality.

Are you going to insult people for spending $2500 on a RTX Titan for playing videogames, too?

Yeah heard about the noise problem on the G3, had completely forgotten about that, thanks! If I'm going to upgrade to a 2080Ti in the future, plus overclock it a bit, would 750W be sufficient? I'm also running a 2700X overclocked.

As an owner of a SS Prime Ultra Titanium, I can say that it's basically silent. I don't ever hear it in normal mode aside from the rare fan ramp-up. After what happened to eco mode on my p2 1200, I'm kinda weary of those passive modes, but it's not even needed on this unit because it's so quiet.

There is a new certification in town called the Lambda cert. that will grade the unit based on output noise. Cybernetic's ETA cert will grade the efficiency of the units as well. There is a database of all of the units they've tested, but it doesn't give the details of the specific models, just the brands. You can check the company's product page and hope that they have a lambda cert on there. If you want a super quiet one, then look out for the lambda a++ cert (ss prime ultra titaniums are).
