Well, I sympathize with your dilemma. "Silent" is awfully subjective if we're talking about any PSU that has a fan. The only type that's really going to be "silent" is one that's convection-cooled...

Nope. You haven't thought this through all the way. Flipping over the PSU will accomplish nothing that simply twisting the cables 1/2 turn wouldn't, which isn't going to help with your situation at...

Well, isn't a modular power supply exactly the situation where this could be easily addressed? One set of top-mount cables, one of bottom mount. Or make two SKUs with the cable-orientation...

Do you realize that three posts up you said this ^^^^ was the "current part number"? See, you're as confused as everyone else. Either it's current or obsolete, but it can't be both.

Most likely not, but under a very unusual set of circumstances, it's at least possible. You would have to have 1) a very noisy, distorted AC line that causes 2) ratty current waveforms in the PSU's...

Well, any mod like this is a warranty-killer, as you probably realize. I've modded a few supplies over the years to make the fan run faster. Typically there's a thermistor screwed to one of the...

While there may be some PSUs somewhere that have some kind of unusual power input on/off switching, I've never seen one. Every switch I've ever seen simply shuts off the mains input. About the only...

Your UPS is too small for what you're asking it to do. Plain and simple. End of discussion.

Ignoring PSU efficiency (the effect is negligible) and since your PSU has active PFC, at full 650W load it should not draw more than 650W/240V = 2.7A AC. Allowing a factor for somewhat higher...

There are still too many unknowns here to point a finger at any one cause. You need to do more troubleshooting. Just for instance, what do you suppose would happen under your scenario if the HSFs...

Before jumping to a lot of conclusions, run resmon.exe and see if there's a process or service that's causing excessive CPU usage. Then you know where to start looking.

A bit of Google yields power estimates at full load of that gfx card at around 250W. Your processor is specified by AMD at 95W (let's call it 100W). The CX500 is rated at roughly 400W on the 12V...

Do NOT trust motherboard voltage readings. Check it with a multimeter before you go wasting your time RMA-ing a power supply that might not be the actual problem.
