    Quest for the Ultra-Quiet PSU

    jamesp2 Level 1

      Is anyone prepared to swear by any particular unit?

       

      I can only speak to the Corsair HX1050 Gold, and while it's quiet enough on low-load tasks, there's no mistaking it for "whisper quiet" when playing video.  Depending on background noise levels and whether audio is playing, that noise may not be noted.  By its an unmistakable engine when playing HD video in a quiet room without an audio track.  The source appears to be the PSU fan, and the sound insulation in the case doesn't appear to be much help.

       

      How typical is this?
