I read somewhere on here people said theres a new revision with easier to manage cables? Yes, it is. I've got one. It doesn't have the thick shielding on the main cables, instead it has a special ring, where the cables enter the PSU: http://www.maxpoint.com/products/pow_supp/spec_pg/noistakerax2/im...

It's because i don't like the sound the fans make, when they spin at a low RPM. They don't make a smooth air sound, as i like...:)

I want to connect it to a normal 4 pin molex power connector, found on my 9800 pro card. So i need an adaptor, 6 pin to 4 pin. Does this type of adaptor exists? Where can i fin one to b...

1) I know about the whole "coil whine" thing. What surprized me was that it only had coil whine when it was NOT connected to the mobo.

I have the Enermax NoiseTaker 475 A-PFC v. 2.0 1. If i start the PSU, shorting the green-black wires, so no motherboard or video card is connected to it, the PSU whines.

They will spin, because, when you first power up the PSU, for a couple of seconds, the fans will spin at full speed, just to help the fans spin up. To get you an idea of how sensible my ears are, i didn't liked how the Antec TP 430 fans sounded at minimum rpm (when you power up the psu). The fans cl...
