Snagged the 850 version of this during Black Friday bonanza. Has pretty darn good reviews.
I wish that sucker was on sale. I'll have to OC & get a ton of HDDs to use up that 850W. ^_^

Will Gold run quieter (vs Bronze) under load?

Bought one! Thanks! The PSU that came in my CyberPower (I know, I know, it was an amazing deal) is making annoying noise like something is in the fan so I'll replace it with this awesome PSU.

Not necessarily. Gold is just more efficient. If the computer is using 300 Watts the more efficient PSU will probably be pulling less wattage from the wall (maybe 330 vs 340 W just as a wild estimate).

This PSU should be very quiet though. Nice quiet fan and it even has the Seasonic Hybrid Mode where it tries to not use the fan at all when possible.

Thanks. My Seasonic Bronze is 650W. Based on your comment, seems like I would be better off to get a PSU rated at higher wattage (850W+), so that it will run mostly under load and the PSU fan will not go full rpm on me.

Exactly. I find that the 850W is really the sweet spot if your load is really only like 200-350W for noise v performance trade-off. That fan can also pull in a lot of dust as well.

It probably would have made FP if you posted it. Had I known it was that cheap, I would have picked up one.
Cheers

Your system needs to be pulling minimum of 20% or 170w for the Plus efficiency rating to kick in. Anytime the PSU is using less than that, its efficiency is no better than any other cheap PSU out on the market.

Other than that, it is still worth buying this PSU at $65AR if you're looking for an inexpensive and highly reliable PSU.

Yes and no. I'm not sure if anyone really is pulling even 20%+ load 24/7 unless running a computational rig or constantly gaming. I really buy the margin of safety or insurance when it does pull 50-100% under transient load and the PSU doesnt blow up taking with it thousands of expensive parts, data and downtime...not everyone buys a V8 to race to work, but its power and engineering there when you need it.

Is a 750 gold better than an 850 bronze at Best Buy for the same price
