Is the seasonic SFX 500 noisy? I see it mentioned around the net. Is it a matter of pot luck if you get a quiet one?

Problem with old reviews is that not all the items reviewed are still available unless you look on ebay.

Quietest & Best 120mm fan

I am looking for some 120mm case fans. The fan must be the quietest and pushes a good amount of air. I have been out of the loop for years so i do not know which is which these days!

Quiet and good cfm. Any pointers would be great! Ta

Re: Modular and Quiet

Not overclocking and not using a dedicated gpu. Just want the quietest PSU arouond 500w and is modular. The recommended by SPCR looks well out of date unless i am looking in the wrong place?

Re: Modular and Quiet

Most importantly for me it must be quiet and modular. I guess a 500w would be ample as not using a Dedicated GPU.

I like the sfx ones but i see many complaints about noise from them!!

Yea, even using the speed reducers it is noisey. 120mm Nexus fan needs a bit of research then. Thanks

Re: Got a narrow case. Need short heatsink

Bought and fitted the Scythe Shuriken BIG Awesome is the only word. A doddle to fit (Had to take mobo out of case but that was easy). Lovely size to it. Very quiet when smart enabled. Beauty of it is it takes 120mm fans!! Means i can change mine if need be, anytime.
