I have just spent 10 000 nok (1 000£) on my lovely gaming computer, however i found out that when i am doing light web browsing etc, and want my pc to be really quiet, the psu is the only thing that is really audible, and while it is nothing super noisy it is still too much for me. My current psu is the XFX ProSeries XXX Edition P1-650X-XXB9 650W 695 nok (70£).
I will return this, and buy something better. My eyes fell on these two, i believe both are good, but that the more expensive one is even more quiet than the cheaper one.
Be-Quiet Pure Power L8 630W currently 690kr in norway (70£).
Be-Quiet Straight Power BQT E9 CM 580W currently 895kr in norway (90£)
Is there much difference between these two power supplies, is it worth the extra money?
Any other silent PSU you would recommend in this price range? Preferably around 70£ since that is what the psu im going to return cost me. Must be available in Norway, i'm kind of relying on that
Thank you for your time.
