Low noise Psu

  Spencus 18:07 17 May 2003

Has anyone fitted one of the claimed low noise Psu!s, if so, are they as quiet as claimed?

Mine is getting very noisy, and as I have a desktop case I cant tuck it away under my workstation

I have a Tsunami LC-A400 Watt. ATX, as the model number suggest it's a 400 watt unit and is whisper quiet. Cost £40 about 8 months ago and worth every penny, maybe cheaper now.

CPU fan is "Globalwin Twin" consist of two fans on the heatsink, also whisper quiet £25, the only noise I hear from my system is a gentle hum from the hard drive, " Maxtor 80g. fluid bearing drive. J.

I fitted a Nexus 300w Psu - the difference was amazing.

Bought from click here . Not the cheapest thing I ever bought at £66.92 inc. VAT & delivery but definately worth the price.

Do to the retraction in European mining I picked one of these click here at a bargain price & have it in the garden connected to the house with 1 metre diameter Industrial Air Bagging, then thorough the use of sheet steel reinforced ducting this connects to the whole of one side of my pc, the other side panel has been replaced with small mesh. The unit is capable of moving several hundred cubic feet of air a minute even on the lowest setting. The downside is I have all windows and doors open while in use and even then the pressure in the house is roughly equivalent to being at 15,000 feet altitude. The second issue was getting the electricity company to install a suitable 6000 volt incoming supply.
