I bought the Antec Sonata with Truepower 380W.
..
Then I bought a Tagan 330W.

WOW! :o

The power is much more quiet, and it never starts the second fan.
Atleast I never heard it.. even when my computer complained that the CPU got to warm ;)

I would recommend Tagan.

Haven't silentpcreview.com got that much reputation - that developers would like to have it testet ?
I mean - alot of people buy because of your opinions. (I do :D )

Okey. Then I'll be going to buy the Silverstone ST30NF.
Although you ratet the Phantom 350 higher, I checked with webshops and the only thing available is the Silverstone. :?

Thank you for testing these PSU! Please keep up the good work.

Fan rubber - where to buy them ?

With the Antec Sonata - there is a 120mm case fan which comes bundled.
This fan is mounted with rubber "pins". Reducing fan vibration.

I live in Norway. Haven't found any shop selling these..
Quess I can order them from abroad. Should go into an envelope.

But where ?

Today..I can feel that the PSU is pushing normal hot air out..

Great work, Mr Peterson ;)
Your papst is running at high speed. You should have a FANMATE2 or something to regulate the power.
(I'm going to put a FANMATE2 on the 120mm fan in the back of sonata'n.)

But do you think it would be enough to have the 120mm in the back.

lenny ; I experience the same as you do, with the PSU exhausting alot hotter air than the 120mm fan below. I have read alot of messages...puh.. And it seems that the harddrives are making alot of heat. And they should have a better airflow - to make them last longer, and also to reduce the heat in ...

Thank you. Great reading.. I noticed this: Subjectively, the Enermax NoiseTaker 475 is very quiet from idle all the to 200W output: There was no change in noise from 65W load to 200W. But between 200W and 250W output, there is a major step in fan speed and noise, and hits 32dBA at 250W. All the nois...
