Sure, but in an application where the fan only spins when the PSU is under heavy loads, even that rifle bearing fan is going to outlast the PSU itself.

Some may argue that noise in the beginning is pretty low and goes up tremendously as time progresses.

Well I told you how hot it gets here.
That and the fact that I run about 500+ watts load.. (oc fx and 280x) with tons of peripherals... The fan should spin a ton.

So you're saying that rifle bearings are orientation independent as compared to sleeve? I don't see the physics behind it. As you said, the missing balls to reduce the contact will continue to have an impact, I believe albeit at a lower rate as compared to simple sleeve but still higher than DBB.

Where does DFB fit in ( I'm new to this though I have studied the tips and patent workarounds)?

The rifle bearings do not get louder over time. And the rifling is the reason why orientation doesn't effect longevity because the lubricant doesn't "pool" like it can with a sleeve bearing. The bearing is "always wet".

FDB is as good as you can get. Best of all worlds. You have a sealed pool of oil that the shaft spins in. They are the quietest and have the longest life of all the bearings.

Thanks for the inputs mate, will help my PSU selection. If RMi turns out to be the beast they've specc'd it to be, that's my next build. Let's wait for your tear-down shall we :)

I checked with India support and they said it'll take a couple of months before availability is as possibility.

An RMi review is due to be published next week.
