Re: Asus GTX970 STRIX

However, I have experienced some coil whine occasionally, which is my biggest annoyance. A high-pitched sound that I never heard before. This only occurs in certain situation, however. The most striking sound was during the loading screen of the Nvidia FaceWorks demo: http://www.nvidia.com/coolstuf...

Re: A new quiet kid in town (BeQuiet E10 PSUs hit the shelf)

And for the 50% load we are close to 92%. I think the top PSU makers will eventually pass the 95% eff at 50% but the cost would be very high . Anyway for the past 3 years the power draw for an office PC has gone down from 80, 70 W to 25W idle and 150 W load to 65W . And for the gamer PC ( average - ...

Re: A new quiet kid in town (BeQuiet E10 PSUs hit the shelf)

Here are some efficiency charts ( 220V/50 Hz ) for E9 tomshardware and computerbase.de I saw some minor efficiency drops for the new E10 compared to E9 at very small load ( 25 W ) . Maybe they tried to compensate at 20 % , 50% , 100 % with a higher efficiency . Anyway I am very pleased by the qualit...

Re: A new quiet kid in town (BeQuiet E10 PSUs hit the shelf)

After reading the german site ComputerBase.de and Tomshardware.com on their review of BeQuiet! E9 series , I decided on buying one ( July 2014 ) : BeQuiet! E9 450W . Fearing the dreadful noise coming from several direction ( coil noise , buzzing , loud fan bearings , etc ) , I was skeptical at what ...

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

Forgot to answer more clearly : Except for the standard fan ( removed ) the PSU is DEAD silent when disabling the C6 and SpeedStep, I did some further testing by completely stopping the NEXUS fan , and I can confirm that there is no kind of sound . When the speedstates are enabled , as everyone has ...

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

About the Kill-A-Watt device , I have two of these kind , one is Voltcraft Energy Monitor 3000 , not so happy about this one - it adds it's own power consumption ( usually 1W ) to the reading , and one other no name , but big LCD . Now about your fears about the reading accuracy , I was too at the b...

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

So be it . But if I estimate an average efficiency of 70% for this 15 W range , that would mean that for every 10W AC ( 220 V - Europe ) it the PSU eats 3W as heat , so for 11.5W at least 4W is waste . So if your guess is right about my overoptimistic efficiency and we have around 70% that would mea...
