  1. Not a 100% sure, but iirc: - Lighter - Different 4-in-3 modules - 1 psu bay instead of 2 - 2 120 mm exhaust fans instead of 1 Maybe someone can shed some more light on it.
  2. Which fans? (it seems an unlikely miracle)

    CM Stacker Versions

    I know, my original question was if all the black ones are revision 2.

    CM Stacker Versions

    I meant this one: ... t01-uk.asp I'm pretty sure they're sold. I'm not talking about the one with side windows, just the normal version.

    Are all the stackers with the black side panels revision 2's?
  6. PSU power is always given in DC power, a lower efficiency will lead to more AC usage. The reason some requirements are high is because a lot of psu's are utter crap that don't live up to their rating. For instance a 350W sweex can actually deliver 250 W (that's what it sais on the box, you can imagine that being even lower) A quality psu in the 300-400 W range is plenty for most.
  7. Who voted that he/she needed 1400 W? If you see this i'd like to know what needs that kind of power.
  8. Silentpcreview is very strict on noise levels, maybe you should ask on their forums? Anyone who still has 40 mm fans(or stock noisy gpu fans) are not a good reference.
  9. Let's say the 6800 Ultra's use 150 W each. (which is a lot in my eyes and probably way too much) Let's add another 150 W(again a lot) for the cpu and 100 W for the rest of the system. That's 550 W, not 850 W. It would be unwise for manufacturers to create even more power hungry components, because some things are already using way too much. Anyone considering to buy a computer(non-server) that needs the full power of even a 450 W psu should consider how much that is.
  10. (Active) PFC is only usefull for putting less strain on the energy grid, by having more "stable" power demands. The energy grid itself will be more efficient (and more environmently friendly). The power meter in a house looks at real power not apparant power(low pf value will lead less constant power demands). So Active PFC is a good thing, but it will not save you money. (it will reduce efficiancy a bit because of added electronics) When i said low power, i meant somewhere around 50-80 watt, was efficiancy tested at those levels? 25 degrees fahrenheit or celsius? 650W is peak power level?
  11. The day a real computer needs such a psu (providing it lives up to what it sais) is the day something is really wrong. What on earth do you need this much power for?
  12. I'd like to say a few things: at 68% efficiancy a 150 W DC load would become 150/0,68=221 W AC load at 75% efficiancy a 150 W DC load would become 150/0,75=200 W AC load No way that first can cost twice(5 and 2,50 dollar comparison) energy wise. Is the efficiancy measured at 110 V or 220 V, efficiancy at full load or less load?(if so what load) >75% efficiancy isn't worldshocking either, unless you can keep that up at very low loads and go (well) over 80% at full load. At what temperature is that MTBF tested at? At what temperature can it sustain 650W? If it's not about looks, then why does it boast a led-fan. What kind of fan does it come with? No psu (with fan) i've ever seen will stay below 23 dba at full load, does this one really or is it only at light loads? How much is that thing going to cost?
