If you have this option on your PSU, as the title says.

Silent Cooling works well unless its on 24/7 and your constant load is over 70% or so. But it also depends what temp the fan kicks on.

Semi-passive on my Focus+ Gold 750W. Though the fan is silent when there's not much load, but as this has this feature, why not use it. :)

Hey, that's from the Focus Plus marketing materials :laugh:

My Focus Plus Platinum has that very button, and it's always on semi-passive. Works well, since that one serves HTPC functions, with the 4790K and 1070 at idle most of the time and the 1070 being semi-passive anyways. It's a whisper quiet setup.

The SF600 works a little harder, but is still zero RPM at low loads. It's the quietest part of the system regardless.

I run them all active. The EVGA 650P2 needs to be run active, from reading reviews these units fail if they use ECO mode. Seasonic 660XP2 runs active because it needs the cooling, the case is quite small. Seasonic Focus Plus 550 Gold active because I can't hear the fan anyway, it may as well run all the time and keep the power supply cool. All three are in Lian Li A05 cases so tiny cases, but the 660XP2 is in a gaming machine thats cramped with hardware.

Well, with 10 year warranty, I'd say that the fan would rather fail than the PSU itself. I mean, the warranty isn't a MTBF, but I think you get my point.

I was just thinking about that and changed to semi-passive before I made this thread.
The other components inside the PSU probably last longer anyway, even in semi-passive mode and the components probably don't get that hot on low load. (with my Seasonic PSU).

Maybe I'll run it active again during Summer next year.

Semi passive wherever possible - fans cant wear out if they're off at idle, and no dust buildup.

Fan always stopped and temp 35~36C (idle/browsing/videos, 110~130W output) and 38~40C (after 2 hours gaming 300~320W and peak 350W output). Ambient around PSU 27C.
If it starts, going to 740rpm (40%) min. It was starting when gaming back at August with 33C ambient. Still quiet.
I can set a custom fan curve to whatever temp but unfortunately the min speed is 740rpm (40%) also and the stop function is disabled, so I keep auto mode. Not worthing the custom to build dust.

I know its overkill for the system but I had it already (new) for something bigger that didnt build. Though I will add maybe 100~150W down the road (replace GPU/CPU) short and long term. Still will be a bit overkill...

My Corsair RM650 uses Zero RPM fan mode so at low and medium loads the cooling fan switches off entirely for near-silent operation.
So there isn't any option to use the fan at low loads.
But with a 10 year warranty, I really am not concerned either way.

In my opinion you should always keep your PC as cool as possible until it becomes too loud. I run a quiet custom profile on my HX1200! and the fan idles in the high 20s and under load never goes above 50 C. I have never been a fan of zero fan policies on hardware as in my opinion (especially with PWM) you can make your session much more enjoyable if the ambient temp in your case is 10 C lower when you start and can be just as quiet. Most PSUs have at least 135MM fans which are inherently quiet.

Ready for TPUs head to explode in 3..........2...........1........

I run a 750W PSU on silent mode running a i9-7960x 16c/32t processor at 4.4 GHz all c/t along with an overclocked RTX 2080 Ti. I don't recall seeing the fan spin up while gaming.

Semi-passive. Last time I looked at it, it still looked brand new, zero signs of dust. To the point where I'm not really sure if the fan actually did any spinning business in my previous build.
