PSchuetz Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 Hi there, here are my comments, suggestions, questions and some complaints :biggrin: :roll: - All solid capacitor design (like with Gigabyte motherboards/graphic boards/video cards and now new ASUS motherboards, too..) Why not? Further improve/increase MTBF/Lifetime of the PSU and PSU pcb.. (Better than electrolytic capacitors..) (http://ultradurable.gigabyte.com.tw/en/ultradurable-web-1.html ) - Minimum current/amps needed, maximum is given..(I want to know the min. load requirement) :confused: - Max combined amps of 3.3V and 5V? :confused: - Max combined amps/power if all connected and used (3.3V, 5V and 12V rails combined)?! :confused: - 2 or 4 PCIe connectors? (Ready for 2x Geforce 8800 GTX?) :confused: - What is the standby power and off power usage/consumption of the HX PSUs? :confused: - Not really a quiet (fan).. :sigh!: :evil: :!: For me and much/many other people it is simple not acceptable, that the HX PSU series is that loud/noisy. It's too loud/noisy for me and if you want an silent PC with only whisper or no noise, you simply can't choose and buy your HX series PSUs, which is really bad and should be changed.. I'm sad about this fact.. :(: I suggest you and would prefer a new silent/ultra-silent model/variant of the HX series, maybe e.g. HX620-S or HX620-US (for silent and ultrasilent) This is simple possible, you only need another better fan, like the very good, well known, recognized and approved Papst 120mm 4412 F/2GLL fan or Noiseblocker 120mm NB-UltraSilentFan SX1 Rev. 1.2 fan with 6 years warranty, which would perfect fit with your 5 years warranty for your PSUs! :) (http://www.noiseblocker.de/en/produkt_luefter_nb-ultrasilentfan-sx1.php ) Both fans should be mounted decoupled into the PSU and speed reduced to 8V or 9V (instead of 12V) to get even more silence out of it.. (Maybe temp. controlled with low rpm) Only with such ultra-low noise and silent fans, your PSUs would be powerful, stable, reliable, great AND -VERY IMPORTANT- silencer/silent PC freaks ready/compliant..! :p: Please make that possible, so we don't must mod the HX PSUs and lost our warranty.. -.- :[pouts: The mentioned Papst or Noiseblocker fan is strong enough and really much more silent with much less noise! (produces nearly/almost no noise..) E.g. I would -LOVE- to buy an HX620 PSU, because its great specifications, ratings and tests and don't forget the nice 5 year warranty, but not with this noisy and loud fan..! :/ :(: (From your product page: -Ultra quiet 120mm double ball-bearing fan delivers excellent airflow at an exceptionally low noise level by varying the RPM in response to temperature. That simply is NOT true..!) (Replace the fan with one of my suggestions and adjust the fan speed settings and temp. measurement, then the claim (and I mean here your claim!) will become true/reality..!) Btw. the Noiseblocker SX1 fans are rated for an MTBF/lifetime > 100,000 hours at 45°C! Failure rate is < 0,01 % (on 100,000 units per year) Special features are overheat protection and auto restart function. - On your next PSU model(s) I suggest you to power them with at least 24A better 28A or 30A on an single 12V rail..! ;): - Further I suggest you to get the 80plus logo/certification (Energie Efficiency) (which means quality..!) (http://www.80plus.org ) ;): - Combined power of 3.3V and 5V rails should be at least 170W, better 180-200W.. (on highest/best rated PSU model..) ;): A good example would be the new Enermax Infiniti PSU with 720W. (All is good there, but the combined power..) (http://www.enermax.com, http://www.enermax.com/english/product_Display1.asp?PrID=66 ) (I hope it is ok to post it here, because it's an suggestion and comparison to look at and not an ad for them! And I bet you're strong enough to accept that/it and you can beat your competition..!) :p: :D: :roll: :cool: And finally an suggestion to your support department, it is only possible to call the toll-free number within the USA, but you have customers from all over the world in many countries and continents.. What about an 00800 toll-free number (00 for international instead of 0800), which is/whould be available for free all over the world, like from EU, too! Thx. :D: I hope you can consider/take into account these suggestions and comments. It would be great if you integrate and realize them in an upcoming product/model for your PSUs or an modified/variant model of your current PSUs.. Please forward and discuss this with your Corsair team and development team and your managemant/executive board. (I know your PSUs are developed by your team and manufactured at Seasonic and are an variant of their models.. ;): ) Thanks in advance! :sunglasse best regards, PSchuetz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
