Silence build question?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have some question about my psu selection, I have been looking at a fanless option the (silverstone nightjar) 

I was thinking is it a good option seeing I'm using a silverstone sg13 I'm worried it might overheat and cause more problems, can anyone advice? 

And if anyone can suggest a 120mm  AIO with a good quiet pump. 

I'll also be using corsair's ml fans for quiet fans. 

I'm trying to get my system as quiet as possible.

well a pc is very quiet when it's broken

I'd recommend using a power supply with a fan , or just use a phone or tablet

Fanless PSUs expect there to be some airflow from the case fans. If you want a quiet PSU, just get a quiet PSU.

im not sure if i would go fanless. the case doesnt look like it has a lot of airflow. just get one that turns the fan off at low loads.

the key to low noise is low rpm meaning no restrictions. and then once you get there and everything is silent like the fans and the psu and no coilwhine from the gpu if youre lucky then you will start noticing other sounds more and things like the pump adn harddrive noises will become more prominent

I'm trying to get my system as quiet as possible. 

 

fanless psus are definitely silent but rely on the airflow from the rest of the system to stay cool, it cant just run at load with static air, it needs something moving through it, so if youre gonna go passive you're going to want a case that will direct airflow over it and through it if possible

the seasonic ultra prime titanium PSUs for example come with a recommendation for a top mounted power supply case if youre going vertical, or to use multiple single direction intakes and no exhaust fan for max positive air pressure

 

in something like the SG13b I would not suggest an AIO, go with a lower wattage processor and a slim downdraft cooler with a 140mm front intake to supply air into the system, id recommend either an overkill cooler style gpu or honestly a blower cooler just to keep the GPU out of the mix entirely and potentially underclock it to keep it cool

 

its like, if you want high performance parts and quiet, you need lots of room

if you can suffice with lower/mid tier current generation hardware, then you can get away with a lot more in terms of airflow and cooling

 

ive got a corsair rm1000x powering an RX 560 and i7 7700T cooled by a bequiet dark rock pro 4 for the sake of silence, in a tiny little rajintek metis, the cooler is functioning as the air intake for the system and exhausts out the bottom by the psu, the 560 sits up in the top and slow roasts itself but its still fairly quiet under load

overkill psu, but it runs passively like this under load, completely maxed out the system is near inaudible from where I sit

 


Pro tip, before you reply to an question or topic, answer these three questions:

 

1) Do I actually have an answer for OP at all?

2) Am I giving an answer that is based in multiple reliable source tests and not personal opinion or heresay?

3) Is my answer on topic, clear and concise?

 

If you answered "no" to any of those, close the tab.

Do not give people information you personally think is correct. Source, research and then reply. If you plain and simple don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it. It's harmful to support questions on forums to be providing people with wrong or misleading information. As well as going off topic from the original question.

i.e. "What B360 motherboard should I buy?"

the beautiful whine of a WD gold spooling up and down is extremely noticeable when the rest of your system makes no noise at all

had a system testing recently with a thermaltake silent purepower from 2004 powering a 3ghz Pentium 4 with a Silverstone sst nt01 and a winfast px8500

entirely silent

until the test HDD spun up and made my ears hurt

exactly. i guess the best way still would be to do like linus and stuff the whole pc in the closet to shut it up.

Do not mix fanless components with cramped form factors.

For a silent build with some fanless componentes, a larger case with more space for air to flow properly would be a better option.

Also, Corsair's ML fans are not even close to being the most silent fans on the market right now, even some ball bearing options can be quieter.

Modern fanless need airflow. You do not have that.

Besides that, I see some huge Problems in your build, if you want it really quiet:

120mm  AIO with a good quiet pump.

That is not really possible to get it really quiet in that size. The best way might be an SFX PSU with the Silverstone PP08 Adaptorbracket, mount the PSU as high as possible and use a mediocre Aircooler. Something like NH-L12 Should be possible. That Heatsink is good for around 100W or so.

 

Well, what's the Hardware inside??

Everything already purchased??

One of these Seasonics would be a good choice:

SeaSonic FOCUS Plus 650 Gold SSR-650FX

SeaSonic SSR-650FM

SeaSonic SSR-650PX

Seasonic SSR-650SGX

 

Although 550W would be plenty, I bumped you up a bit for "future proofing" and to keep the fan in silent mode longer, however, you could flip it and keep it in active mode if you need to remove heat from the system. PCPartPicker says these will fit, but you'll need to double check. The SSR-650SGX  is only 125mm, so this may be the best choice.

https://www.cybenetics.com/a/K4g/

Modular PSU take a lot more space than the dimensions sugest. People tend to forget the Connectors!
And they are usually another 10mm or so...

 

Lower Wattage Formula come with only 2 Drive Cables anyway, so there isn't much left to manage. And for that there is ziptie. With that the PSU takes way less space than a modular one.

Can you recommend a quiet psu? 

If price doesn't matter at all, I'd use the NH-L12 as a CPU Cooler and the Silverstone Nightjar NJ450-SXL as a PSU. 

And you need to purchase the PP08 SFX in ATX Bracket as well. That should be the best....

 

If you care a bit about Money, a SST-SX500-G would do the job.

My PC can be silent if I turn most of the fans off😂, if you can actually find fans that can run silent at max or mid power then pls send them to me, also you will need to use ssd storage not hhd becauses they are loud.

I have a few silent fans, bequiet fans are pretty quiet and if you can't get your hands on those I recommend the corsair ml 120/140 pros rgb or non rgb up to you. 

My favorite is still bequiet's silent wings3 but if you're on a pure wings2 will do fine
