Tagan 700w PSUHey guys, I'm starting to really like the PSU, its like THE quietest PSU I've heard since the days of AT PSU's! When nothing on the system is really running, the fans cut off and it goes totally 0dB.  Even when I'm playing Q4 or BF2 it doesn't make more noise than the 6 ultra quiet 80mm fans that I have in various places.

Review: Akust Ramsink VI BGA copper ram sink
Written by Samuknow

As with any computer enthusiast, I like to push my hardware to its limits. Over clocking allows me to get the most from my hardware. As you know in order to achieve the best over clock possible, it is often necessary to increase the voltage. Unfortunately, the byproduct of this added voltage is excess heat. 

 I had pushed my 6800nu to it's limit due to heat. So I picked up a new water block to take over where the stock cooler was falling short. This cooled the GPU but did nothing for the video ram. So now I was looking for a solution to this new problem.

This is why I bought the  Akust Ramsink VI BGA ram sinks.

I have had a chance to get my hands on two contrasting PSU's. Astec's custom built TEC power unit. Looks pretty solid. Full of UCC/NCC and Nichion caps.

And then this crapola of a unit, which needs some recapping done to it.
Guess which unit we have here?

It's a smart looking brushed metal box which packs plenty of power, but with minimal noise output. Sound level is reported as 43dbA at a distance of 10cm (4 inches).
