  1. I'm very happy with my 400R (one step down from the 500R) but I don't see anything "wrong" with the HAF XM either.

    I would go with the one that you think would look better in your home.

    Whcih one has the better quality should i cancel the 500 for the 400
  3. I'm unsure about the HAF quality, but the 400r is well built and well thought out.

    My only reason for getting the 400R was the ease with which I can find 120mm and 140mm fan filters for the fans I wanted to add on the side.

    The 500 comes with a 200mm fan.

    Are stock fans cool and quiet or you need to add more fans?

    Side 200mm?

    My 400R didn't come with a 200mm side fan, so I don't know. However I can't imaging a 200mm low RPM fan being loud.

    And what about fan speed and sound
  15. I'm running a TX750 +SLI and it's been great. But as mentioned above, either of the ones you are looking at are nice.

    Does it make any sounds witht he fan? My rig: amd 8350 ssd vertex 4 256gb amd 7950 asus m5a99xevo
  17. My two graphics cards make all the noise when I'm loading up the PSU, I can't hear it at all when that happens.

    Just surfing the internet and other easy stuff...it's pretty much silent.

    Im getting paranoid a 750 isnt good what do you think if im gonna do light overclocking maybe to 4.5 ghz
  19. I'm at 4Ghz with an i7 right now, but I bet my 1045t X6@ 3.4Ghz pulled more power when I was running that and my two GTX 560's.

    It never showed any signs of stress with that rig.

    I wouldn't worry about my TX750 at all if I were to get aggressive with my OC.

    So you think i should stick with this or get the xfx 850w for the same price?

    Of course he does for the same price why wouldn't you ? Only a :pt1cable: person would not :lol:
  22. ^Correct. More power, reputable name, same price.
  23. Yes. It's a good unit.

    Is it equal in durability as the corsair will it last me the same years? Also last question is there alot of connectors like the corsair?
  25. I have no direct experience with the XFX, but all the testing I have seen says they are well built and perform well.

  42. It's about a year old now, but it's got a lot of "miles" on it. It's done well thus far.
