Re: Corsair CX650M 2015 edition

It is definitely coming from the fan. Once I turn the case around and put it underneath the desk, I don't hear the sound. But it still bugs me that it makes more noise than the stock rear case fan (Cooler Master N200, which is quieter than I expected) or the CPU fan (Cooler Master TX3). It's defect...

Re: Interesting Video of Corsair and JonnyGuru

"quest" is correct. It really depends on how the PSU's fan controller is programmed. One thing's for sure... if you buy a PSU that's "just enough" for your build, that PSU is going to be loud as bonkers at full load. Take these articles with a grain of salt.. since I work for Corsair and everything....

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

Only one graphics card? What you listed isn't going to even need 500W, so you could do a 650W and it would probably only spin up when gaming.

Power output and price are no concern. Just I want to know what takes longer to turn its fan and has better acceleration curve....

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

Your outlet is properly grounded, right? And by "proper", I mean it's actually grounded and doesn't just have a socket for the ground pin. The PSU has been plugged into an ungrounded outlet, I just tried also a properly grounded outlet and turned ErP off - end result easily audible buzz and whine. ...

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

Got a 650W version a couple days ago. The unit seems to emit buzz or whine when the system is powered off, enabling ErP support in BIOS does seem to reduce the noise quite a bit though. Turning system power on cures the problem for a some reason. Not sure if there's variance between different RM PS...

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

Is it true that RM 650W is louder than 550W? Or which of 550, 650 and 750 is the most silent? Actually 550 is enough for me but I fear that with i7+770GTX+2 HDD, 1 SSD it may be more than 40% in idle so it won't stop the fans? (by idle I mean not full idle but something like webbrowser (with 50-100...

Yes. Safe to say Seasonic and Seasonic made units. They tend to have the same problem for the same reason. 5VSB? Or is there another compelling reason, more graphic-card-related? Other than the usual random buzz that you can hear in pretty much any brand of PSU out there, there are some PSUs that, ...

In order to do justice to Seasonic PSUs, I speculate that only their Platinum-rated PSUs have annoying electrical noise problems . That's probably why most people in SPCR are more or less satisfied with Seasonic Gold-rated PSUs where a few unfortunate people like me have been complaining about the ...

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

I bought RM650 at 102 Euro At any rate the RM650 should be a different power supply than the RM450/550: I'm waiting to see whether or not there are actual noise/performance differences as well, by Jeremy (OklahomaWolf) & Mike (our MikeC). Actually, the 450, 550 and 650 are all the same platform.

No. Embargo was Monday. It was early and kept shifting due to late ship dates. That caused some reviewers to shuffle and actually putting doing their RM Series reviews on the back burner. 450W and 1000W still haven't shipped and those that requested those wattages for review actually didn't even get...

Re: Corsair RM Series intro'd

A review of the RM 550 by PC Perspective, of which the most relevant page is maybe this one . The PSU fan does not run until at least 50% load on this model. Like I said, it's temperature AND time based. So either it wasn't hot enough in his lab and/or he didn't have the load on it for very long. I...

but with so many cases allowing you to mount the PSU at the bottom, fan side down, you rarely have higher than room temperature PSU intake temps anymore. This is something that im really interested, not only on the RM but in general, maybe since you have tested so many powersuplies and hotboxes you...

RM isn't supposed to replace TX feature for feature.

But people are not recommending buying a PSU wich runs on 100% load all the time. You'd be surprised. The article that I see getting quoted the most is the DailyTech pre-launch 8800GTX article where they run 3DMark on a GTX and say, "oh look, it only pulls 375W from the wall."

First of all, kudos to Jonny for responding, always good to hear the other side of the argument. However, a lot of it does seem like handwaving, for example the case where it has no airflow so you recommend a 700W PSU even though he doesn't need it, wouldn't it be a better idea just to improve the ...
