I just built a new computer and my PSU seems to be the loudest component. I would like to improve the sound of my PSU. I found a website called QuietPC.com - PSUs. Based on everything I have read, none of these PSU's seem to be recommended for high end systems.
Anyhow, my main concern is improving the sound of my PSU and retaining a stable system. Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6
Graphic card: EVGA GeForce 8800 GTX KO with ACS³
HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB
Case: GIGABYTE 3D AURORA GZ-FSCA1-ATS
Sound Card: Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty
Ram: Kingston HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800
Power Supply: COOLMAX CW-650T EPS12V 650W (I would like to replace)
**May add a 2nd GPU later...
Any suggestions on a new PSU and any comments on the quitepc.com website?
A coolmax psu with an 8800gtx... Very interesting combination. I would either get a 620w Enermax Liberty or a 650w Enermax Infiniti. I have a 620w Liberty, and the fan is really quiet, i can barley hear it over the fan on my Tuniq Tower. Im pretty sure the same fan thats in the Liberty is in the Infiniti.
