post #1846 of 2089

Waiiiiit, I have two questions:

1: Why the $200 PSU?

2: Where's the quiet part? o_o

post #1847 of 2089

From Corsair

"Quiet Operation at low loads. Super-high efficiency has another benefit: silence. The thermally-controlled fan doesn't even spin at low loads. It's ideal if you're building a quiet PC or you just want to reduce the amount of ambient noise in your life."

 

Case, PSU and graphics card were selected based on noise over performance.

The 550D is corsair's mid-tower quiet case.

Case is understandable, I really like Corsair cases but there are other power supplies that less than half the price of an 860i that you could've used like a CM Silent Pro. Anyways, nice build, I'd never be able to afford something like a 3930K.

I have a Fractal R3 that doesn't make any noise at about 2 ft away. Air cooled with all case fans minus one. It's just about your parts mang. GTX670, 4x Phantek case fans, Phantek cooler. Need to replace the old ass Caviar Black and I'm good. Air cooling ftw.

Yep. That's about the only thing you hear on mine is the storage HDD when it gets accessed. My main is an SSD so no noise there.

You can hear a slight hum from the pump, but you have to have your ear right on the case to hear it.

My 8 year old MCP-655 (rebranded as a bunch of other things, Laing D5, etc) lulls me to sleep every night ;)

Definitely my favorite case.  Will be tough to watercool but it looks great.

I remember when they first announced it, I saw the prototypes at CES (2009 I believe) and they were planning on charging $1500 or something stupid.  The actual released model is much cheaper feeling, the prototypes were built like tanks.  Cool case nonetheless!

That's not the Level 10. It's the Level 10 GT. The Level 10 is much cooler and more baller and more $$$. It's really not meant to be a case, it's supposed to be a work of art. Cooling should be purely a bonus, it's the looks and aluminum you're paying for.

The level 10 is one of the worst cases I've worked with just a notch better than the old Antec Basiq beige cases from Pentium 4 days.
