Newegg lists Link Depot Super Flower power supplies. These are the ones on the approved list, correct? Just want to clarify

We have a new PSU king of silence! The Seasonic S12. It is quieter than the perevious Seasonics that were already the quiestest around and the range goes right up to 600W now too. It has dual-12V rails like the only previous >400W quiet PSU, the Enermax Niosetaker and is about the most efficient PSU I have ever seen tested

All Hail the King .

Thanks for the info. I'm still evaluating PSUs for my new comp. So I'll take this into consideration.

Question about the Rail Specs:

You mention that the 12 volt rail should have at LEAST 20 Amps on it. However, I am having a hard time finding any PSUs that have that. And that includes on the Seasonic S12 series and the Enermax Noisetaker series. I find it on the Seasonic Super-Tornado series, but not on the S12 series, unless I go over 500W.

Ah but what you have to remeber is both the Noisetaker and the S12 have DUAL 12V rails. Even the 370W Noisetaker has a 13A and a 14A 12V rail. That's effectively like having a 27A 12V rail.

I had a real bad feeling about a water cooled PSU. Water in the PSU, get a leak among the high current diodes and POOOFFFF LOL . Then I read the article, no water in the PSU case, just a transfer block on the HS. Looks very interesting and quiet. A bit pricey though.

I had bought a Tagan, but i sent it back to newegg...it arrived with the warranty sticker broken. I just recently got the Enermax EG495. Back to tagan...I sent an e-mail back in December to tagan considering their power supply(tg-480) and I never got a response until now..May, 10 2005. It took them nearly 5 months to respond to my e-mail. I think that's enough to consider them not worth the effort

Antec Released the Pahntom 500 which is 500W as the name suggests but is semi-actively cooled. Basically the fan kicks on if things get too hot, which is an idea I like.

Looks like it pips the Seasonic S12 in efficiency acrosing to SPCR... they measured it at 90% efficient at 250W and only dipping to 88% at 500W and 78% at a megre 65W.


Antec Phantom 500W efficiency


Seasonic S12 430W efficiency


Antec Phanotm 350W efficiency


For reference Noisetaker 475W

Depends on what other hardware you've got in there and the brand of PSU. If you just have a HDD, RAM, and an optical drive, along with the 6800 you should be OK with Thermaltake or Antec. I would go for a 450 or 480 to be on the safe side and for future upgrades.

Antec's new Neo 430 HE is the first exceptionally quiet modular PSU. Not quite as quiet as an S12 still, but close.
