Review: 600w OCZ GameXStream (7/21/2006, merged)

Recommended Posts

amm, usually the fan is louder when it needs to cool more, but you dont have a very power demanding machine, so its a bit weird, try seeing if your air circulation in the case is bad (though again, the antec is gr8), maybe a lot of hot air is concentrating on the psu? if not, maybe faulty, try seeing if you can hear the 600/700 somewhere else, so you can compare (it aint totally silent, bu its pretty quite... at least for my taste)

Do you think there's any way of making the unit quiter?

Improve the airflow.

 

The P-180 case is quiet but has horrible air circulation.

 

I've actually had a P-180 case be quieter with the side panel off.

Hmm, my PSU apart from the fan noise which is normal and not annoying also makes a sort of humming sound. That's the most annoying sound I'd say.

 

I don't think it gets very hot either because it has the antec 120mm fan right next to it. I will check on the P180 thread and figure something out hopefully.

 

Thanks guys

Pull the side panel off and monitor your temps. You might be very surprised.
