I'm new here, with many questions.
But it's been long time that I read everything on SPCR, especially for choosing my case (Temnjin TJ08) and my PSU (Be Quiet Straight Power E9 400W 80+ Gold), back in July 2012.
I currently have a quiet PC (see my signature) but I still hear the front airflow and I realized it's really big empty and the PSU is way oversized.
Yesterday I measured the power on the plug. Idle 44W, Load 64W (but I will try a full load for longer to see). Boot peaking at 85W (max display on my powermeter)
And I have a 400W PSU.
I am planning for a smaller one, with latest i3. The goal is to make it even more silent. (with your help?)
I am also trying to read and learn about PicoPSU, which I discovered recently.
I will post my different message in the different sections of the forum. (hopefully in the right place)
Question for my planned components.
Question to learn about picoPSU, if sufficient for my plan.
