Awesome rigs man! I have 5 rigs but nowhere near those specs-I pass rigs on to my kids. Can you post your benchmarks on those rigs? I'm very curious, as I'm sure some others are too.

I do benchmarks all the time, they're just scattered everywhere. If there's something specific you want to see, just let me know.

Capi, your testing is measuring how much wattage is being pulled from the wall socket right? because if so, a more efficient PSU is exactly why its drawing less power. Here is why! I was gonna try and explain it myself, but this webpage does a much better job that i ever good, lol. And... that is insane how efficient that sandy bridge CPU is...

Thanks Merc! I never looked at the details before, but that makes sense.

That wasn't really the point I was trying to make, but that works too. I just wish that we had decent public transportation out here in the mid west. When you live in a town of only a couple thousand people and the nearest decent sized town is 60-70 miles away, it's kind of hard to get by without one.

If the power goes out, the thieves would need to wait 12 hours until the back-up generator runs out of fuel.

Only 12 hours? You need one of these!

I didn't mean that I wouldn't have a car if I had good public transportation, I just meant that I wouldn't have to use it to get somewhere.

And I love when things are expensive enough that they don't bother listing the price.

El Capitan,

Love your rigs. I had been a hobby builder a few years back, and now getting back in toit. Started as a budget builder too,but found myself constantly wanting better faster, more fun learning and tinkering. Anyway I noticed you modified your CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX modded with a Noctua NF-P12 fan. I don't have my PSU yet(next week) but why ? Noise ? and can you just buy the Noctua fan ? I looked and only found the complete cooler for sale so far. Simple mod ?

Thanks. Yeah, it had a decent bit of noise with the fan. Bear in mind, it wasn't that loud, but it wasn't silent, either. It is a simple mod, but you also don't get variability - the more load on the PSU, the more power to the stock fan to give it more RPM's. I basically soldered the fan to the +12 and ground, but put in a resistor to make it from 12v to 7v. The Noctua's have good CFM's, so I'm not worried that it won't cool the PSU components. So far, it's been going steady for 3 months.

congrats, but in a few years they will be old, and then is going to be like Jurassic park down there. ( unless you start over!)
