Been trying to quieting down my already semi-quiet rig and with undervolted Nexus fans suspended HDDs and a undervolted [email protected]
Ninja 2 I guess it comes down to the PSU after covering the upper fan
position in my P182.
The fans I've been considering are S-Flex SFF21F for low starting voltage and max 1600 RPM (should provide adequate cooling but will it be quiet enough and is 4V low enough for a PSU?) and Enermax Magma 1500 RPM for good acoustics in the Eco80 500W review (low starting voltage but is performance good enough to prevent overheating in a older Corsair PSU?).
My idle power-consumption@ wall socket stays at 80W and I never use Prime95 or similar anymore but with heavier load during mixing sessions it tops at 150W at most so there shouldn't be much of a heat issue.
Would really appreciate some input here.
