Noisy Powersupplies

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Okay so I have this issue… I have a PC at home, its pretty nice, Core 2 Duo with 2 GB ram, 1 TB of combined space, XFX Geforce 8800GT XXX Edition, 22″ wide monitor and one heck of a noisy powersupply!!! It wasn’t cheap either, but its noisy and sometimes I cannot sleep with the PC on. So I am on the hunt for a new powersupply… but I need to make sure its quiet. I just don’t get how all the HP systems and DELL systems are always so quiet, even the cheap ones… I took to the net and soon enough I stumbled upon the VX Series from Corsair, check out the goods here. Basically the fan is dynamic up until it really needs it, this stupid fan I have runs at the same speed 24/7 which is ridiculous… I think I will be ordering the VX550w powersupply. Once it is installed I’ll let you all know how it turned out!

Update… 10 minutes later :)

HX620W over at shopbot.ca (link here) got a great review and its only 100$ CDN I think ill be getting that one instead… this one is modular and can pump out more wattage at lower decibels!
