first-time-poster.. which high-quality push/pull-fan PSU? ty

Post by six4withafro » Thu Jan 18, 2007 9:14 pm

Hello everyone, and thanks for reading. Given the layout of my case (the Sonata II), a single-120mm-fan-style PSU is not an option (tricky, tricky, antec). I'm looking at the Silverstone Zeus 560W or the Tagan TG600-U25. (I know these are more than I need right now, but I eventually aim to run RAID 5 with a much better gfx card and OC my cpu to ~3.0 GHz)

The loudest fan in my case is the 107mm fan on my AC 64 Freezer Pro running at 2425 RPM (no pwm), and I'd like to keep it that way. I'm hoping someone here can tell me how quiet the Zeus really is (I've read reviews for the Zeus 650 and listened to it on 3dgameman, too loud), or maybe you have another suggestion for a 550W+ quiet PSU, that doesn't have a 120mm fan on the bottom.

Also, maybe someone can tell me, how noisy are the Fortron Source Group FSP600-80 and FSP700-80 models?

Thanks again for reading.

What about the Antec NeoHE 430 or 550 W?
