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...
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.
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
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
