3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not that quiet, 12 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Corsair TX750V2 Enthusiast Series 750W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU (Accessory)
Bought this about a month ago based on the positive feedback on this site. I installed this in my PC and the first thing I noticed was that it was louder than everything else in the PC, including my graphics card! I was totally shocked, not what I expected at all.

The Corsair website describes this unit as having an "ultra-quiet" fan and the PSU having "exceptionally low noise levels". I disagree. This kind of marketing suggests this PSU should be quieter than other components in your setup (such as your GPU). A little more digging reveals that this PSU has a noise output of 25dB at low power loads; compare that to the AX750 which supposedly has 0 dB output (fanless mode) at the same loading.

While the TX750 isn't exceptionally loud, I would go for the Corsair AX750 or AX850 if you want to build a truely silent PC.

Good PSU overall, and solid build, but not as quiet as you might think going by other customers comments or the hype on the Corsair website. Spend a little more and get something that is truly quiet (like the AX range from Corsair) if that is what you are after.

25dB is very quiet. I wouldn't expect you to hear that above the case fans, CPU and GPU coolers. I'd say you've got one with a noisy fan. Return it.
