Default Re: Best and quietest PSU over 600watts?

I like enermax but i dont like the galaxy unit. I find is ugly, and I also read on the PC Power website that the reason that units have two fans (like the galaxy and also the seasonic M12 series) is that they are being spot cooled by the second fan, and thus they are rated at higher capacities that they should really be running.

I have that Pc power and cooling 610, and i cant hear the fan even if I put my ear 10cm away from it it is so quiet.

Ermm, the Zalman posted in some of the earlier posts is actually a very good PSU, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Jonny Guru has done a review on it I believe, scored in the 9's(??)

620HX is a very quiet PSU.

Enermax used to sell some of the best PSUs.. but now, they are definitely not number one.

I would not get the Liberty 620w model. I think it is known to be not as reliable as the other models. And even then, the other models are sort of showing their age, they're not very efficicent and stuff.
