After a few months of owning a Super Silencer 460 W Revision A3 (not the one MikeC reviewed a while ago with the Yate Loon fan, that supposedly is a different version that I have yet to see in stores. Do you know when they'll be out, Mike?), I have decided to look for a quieter PSU. I believe that my unit probably went bad, or my computer's load/setup was just weird. The fan would create a type of whine at around 1725 RPM, which, unfortunately, was the fan speed that it would hover around. Looking into other PSUs, I decided to look into the Nexus NX-4090, and I am happy to say, it doesn't disappoint. The fan, while large @ 120mm, is very quiet, with only a very
low clattery kind of noise, only audible with your ear placed within several inches of the exhaust. My only gripe is that there are too few connectors for users with many peripherals, and that the cables are just barely
long enough -- I had to use a splitter because the molex connectors could not reach my HDDs in the HDD rack on my BQE. As the chart on Nexus' website
shows, the ramping is extended compared to previous models, thus meaning it will stay quieter at the same loads.
I think this unit definitely deserves a closer look, and thus have contacted endpcnoise.com to see if they can send a sample for SPCR to review
Just telling the good news, this is a good PSU!
