Re: High end Silent PSU question

By JAFFA
hehe, like the idea eva, think my bank manager would boot me in the goolies if I did that though

The 850W OCZ gameXstream just came into stock at one of my fave shops so I may be tempted. I read your review on the 700W version eva and obviously it seems like a cracking PSU, can you comment on how noisy it was/is?


I wish I could just make my mind up
850W OCZ GameXStream is a much stronger psu than 700W OCZ GameXStream.. noise wise it ain't bad.

Re: High end Silent PSU question

I'm in the market for a super quiet PSU as well at the moment, noisy fans make me ANGRY

I know there are a few fanless solutions out there however they are low output aren't they? What did you end up getting mate?

Hey Jaffa, just another vote here for the TT Toughpower 750W. I've got it running my system & it's nice & quiet.

Re: High end Silent PSU question

Ain't got anything yet Sent1nel, I'm leaning more towards the 850w OCZ and the Silverstone Unit, but nothing is for certain and it's not an emergency untill I get my Prommie re-gassed/modded and get a new board. Beginning of January I'll have to make a decision and take it from there.

Re: High end Silent PSU question

850 Watt is overkill for the system I'll be running it on, I only have 1 CDROM and a couple of Harddrives along with my QX6700. I'm looking at perhaps the Thermaltake 750 Watt :X I'll post here when I decide also and give you an update on audio levels!

The only down side I can see to the Tt 750W Toughpower is it only has 3 PCI-ex connectors so you'll have to use a molex to 6-pin converter to run two of the new gfx cards.

Other than that it's a great unit.



Maff, out of the two you're considering, I'd get the 850W OCZ

Re: High end Silent PSU question

yeah mate, I do like my OCZ stuff, been a fan ever since I had my Platinum LE BH-5... great stuff!

Also I did have a 520W Powerstream explode on me, but their RMA was quality... they even gave me a free upgrade! plus the units are made by a different supplier now... Fortron.
