I am currently checking out components for my new build. My main priorities is that it has to be very silent (so I can have it in the livingroom of my girlfriends apartment, and it has to be powerful enough for games like BF3.
I have figuered out that 550 Watts should be plenty, and I really want to buy the Corsair CX V2 600W PSU, but I've heard some complaints about strange noises, and that would be a huge dealbreaker.
Have any of you guys experience with this PSU, or have you heard or read anything? Any relevant answers will be greatly appreciated.
The corsair cx600 v2 is a budget psu but from the reviews I've seen it runs pretty quiet. I'd recommend getting a xfx pro550w it's a much better psu. It's more efficient and has more power on the +12v. It's also made by seasonic which some consider the best psu brand. Another great thing about the xfx pro550w is it's price I don't know where you live but in the US you can get it for $50 http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&m...
