Re: OK, the computer is setup, how do I know it's all good ?

I went on the X-series 750W. Currently it's running in normal mode, and I can't hear it. Currently I have some other noise generation equipment so I'll wait for it to be gone, then I'll do all the tests to see how the stress effects the noise. You all written tons about the software, but not about h...

OK, the computer is setup, how do I know it's all good ?

So, I've setup my comp, and on normal usage it's dead quiet (1.5 meters away from me with a table blocking it). How should I go about stressing it to see: A. That the fans can deal with the heat. B. That everything works OK under sane stress (heavy quality games for example). I've connected all the ...

Re: Last piece of the puzzle... Define R4 or Deep Silence1?

I already have all the parts, and because it came as a bundle i can't resell the parts (at least officially), but it cost me less then normal prices here... As for the case, cool build ! but I don't plan on going up to the scale of replacing the GPU cooler / messing with the case fans (unless I will...

Re: Looking for a recommendation for a quiet PSU limit optio

Hmm.... I don't understand this, you say the machine will take 350-400W at yet you recommend a 600W+ PSU ? why don't I need an 450W+ PSU ? As for the fanless SeaSonic X-460FL it costs 170$ which is more than the X-650 which is 145$ (which is also above the 110$ I wanted to invest in a QUIET, not a S...

Looking for a recommendation for a quiet PSU limit options

Hi, As for this post: http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=67887 I've decided to increase my PSU budget, because in the end it's a small part of all the build anyhow... As I've written, since I have limited options, I would like something from the following list. I would think t...

Re: Need PSU/Cooler/Case choose for quiet build

I am pretty sure my GPU requires 42A from a single rail in 12V or it will not work (seen a few complaints about this on NEWEGG review for example): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130951 It does require a 42 amp rail for power, so I had to purchase a new PSU to support it as...

Re: Need PSU/Cooler/Case choose for quiet build

Wow, how come I didn't see the forum: http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=23 Can this post move there, maybe I could get more input ? ----------------- I see now why my VX550W current PSU is quiet: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vx550w Check the noise graph there, it seems that until ...

Re: Need PSU/Cooler/Case choose for quiet build

I am really bummed that I need to shell out so much money for an quiet (not silent) PSU... I am pretty sure my Corsair VX 550 (which is pretty quiet in my current build) from 6 years ago wasn't this expensive.... also we don't have much of a large selection here :| The SeaSonic M12II-620W if I under...

Re: Need PSU/Cooler/Case choose for quiet build

Ok, let me start by saying thanks for your responses ! However an crucial piece of information was deleted by a moderator. I'm buying this stuff in Israel , which means I'm quite limited in the available options (I've linked to 2 stores which I trust and have an moderate amount of choice, but they w...
