Oh, i have some be quiet! news

I bought a 450W SFX be quiet PSU that seemed great, except under load the fan would rattle if the fan was facing "down" - you could cover the fan or turn the PSU upside down and it would resolve

Returned it, and they had no stock of those PSU's at all so i got store credit - they made it sound like a batch of that model had the fan issue :/

That's weird, how long ago was this?

This is the first time I've seen a Be Quiet! thread here at TPU...:)

Just wanted to say I'm to the point where I ONLY use Be Quiet! fans...I love them. The PureWings2 specifically.

Good price, dead silent...no ticks, no squeals....and no premature deaths.

Don't change what you're doing.

If I could add a little commentary...

You're underplaying just how good your SFX powers supply are. I've had VERY good success with them, again...no coil whine, dead silent, run well. Although, how can you expect to sell them when they're always sold out everywhere and I don't think it's from people buying them...it's because they're not being stocked.

Second...I'll add to others comments. The mini-itx case space needs some fresh ideas. I think Be Quiet! would do very well in that space...it's not crowded.

Best of luck Shannon...

Liquid Cool

Thank you for the kind words, I just rebuilt some of my rig with all of our fans finally. (took me long enough)

I never knew how loud my system was tbh, I just got used to it.

The bad byproduct is Pixel (our cat) now tries to sleep near my PC since its quieter now. :shadedshu:

The issue with mounting a CPU cooler to a GPU is there are no provisions to cool the memory.

I was thinking along the lines of something to compete with Arctic's Accelero line. They are great products but I think be quiet! could do it better and sexier. Plus, any time you add competition to a market all products get better.

I agree, there is a lot that does not necessarily work with mounting a CPU cooler to a GPU. While it can be done, it si not ideal.

However, the idea of working on an aftermarket GPU cooler is not out of the question, but I don't think it would be any time soon. As I said above, the reason many of them have vaporized from the market is that AIB coolers have gotten much better.

Hey Be quiet, start making coolers for 30x0 cards :D

God i'd love a 3 slot monster for my 3090 that was silent at full wattage

I have an RTX 3090 FE, I feel you on this.

I second the ITX case with decent cooling options. A sandwich case the size of an nr200. 240mm support top and bottom would be cool. You top that off with the classic black you guys have and we're golden.

I think if anything can be taken from my OP and replies, this is a very important goal for me. I cannot guarantee it will happen, but as long as I am with be quiet! I can guarantee you I will push for it :)

Would you mind PMing me as I would like a bit more detail on this. It may just be a weird thing, but I would like to ensure my team is aware if it is more than just a single dodgy fan.

Hey Bonehead123, (sorry I did chuckle a little while typing that)

I was AFK a bit yesterday, working on some other things, I will check that out shortly. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. :toast:

Hey guys, just to clarify as the other thread was not directly a be quiet! thread, but the new Silent Loop 2, will not be available in the USA but will be available in Canada in the coming weeks.

I know this is the case thread, but as it was mentioned here, I wanted to ensure it was noted in this thread.

I just wanted to comment, even though I currently do not own any be quiet! products, that it's very nice, ambitious and uncommon for a company to get involved with a tech community, listening to suggestions and feedback. I've been reading reviews of be quiet!'s cases for a long time, and I'll definitely consider one of your chassis for my next build.

Thanks and happy to be here. Being part of the community is very important for me, because while we have some brilliant people in our product management and design teams... I will not pretend we always know everything you may want or would like to see a progression toward.

In many ways, the community can be as big of a part of my personal feedback loop as any other singular form of feedback. I only hope that by hanging out with you guys, I can help steer some things toward product offerings that you all will like better and that will fit your needs/wants better.

Over the 500 years i've been moderating here (time dilation, fanboy arguments cause black holes) i've seen a trend where tech companies send out feelers with employees and it results in a generation of products we all love since feedback was listened to (look at the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic PCMR Limited Edition Case and the sheer love the community has for the O11 in general) and then.... the companies ditch the employees communicating.
As a current example, corsair went quiet on their forums with no employees for about 3 months while their software was at its most bug ridden, only to triumphantly return with a new version of icue that... cut off support for a bunch of popular products. Be quiet is a hardware company so its not directly comparable, but bad ideas need feedback to stop them before the ball is rolling too fast.

TL;DR: fight with be quiet to be here, and to allow more of your co-workers to get involved on as many platforms as possible. We need the middlemen to talk to the loft overlords.
