I have seen many reviews lately about fanless PSUs but everybody here are saying that we should not use fanless PSU... I think that this is due to bad experiences in the past... but come on... I would guess that someone somewhere has a Fanless PSUs that is just working as the manufacturer claims and...

THanks Halcyon. Great link!! Summary taken from last page: "Our benchmarks have shown that raw performance levels of the DiamondMax 10 are not up to par with Western Digital’s Raptor, but that’s not incredibly surprising considering the 33% difference in spindle speed. Still, the DiamondMax is w...

PC always on... How much will it be the electricity bill?

For all of us that have the PC on at all times... is there anyone that has an estimated amount of how much money it cost to have the PC always on per month (or per year). Of course it depends on PSU, PC activity, country... but as an average... how much do you pay in UK, US, Canada, ... for PC elect...

Thank you all. In my opinion, if you're looking to build a silent pc, the higher the power output of a psu, the better. This is the case if you are planning on modding the psu with a very slow spinning fan, and if you buy a psu from a good company. 100% I agree. This is the reason why I am consideri...

Thank you Straker.
