    Hi, can the unit be run with fan permanently on and, if so, how noisy would it be? Would it then run at full speed or would there still be fan control?

    All the info is on the Seasonic site. I should have looked there first, sorry.

    Always good to ask even though you didn't get a reply :p I would let it run with the fan on and see what the noise is like. Some units can ramp the fan up in hybrid mode but it just depends on the fan profile and fan. At least in fanned mode it should be less aggressive.

    I've just heard the fan noise of a unit in NORMAL mode and it's not appealing, that would really bother me. I don't know if that's an isolated case or they all sound like that. I need the fan to be on all the time since it's the only fan in the case. Looks like it's going to be the be quiet! straight power or dark power pro.

    I can't answer that but it wouldn't be as noticeable once it was in the case and the side panel is on. Also most people would have their case more than 50cm from Earshot.

    If you haven't already bought it and want a quieter unit then sure BeQuiet can be good, and there is also the Corsair RMi and Bitfenix Whisper. That one has an ugly 24 pin cable though so not the best if you want the cables to look good.
