    Looking for advice between either of these PSUs:

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £236.04 (includes shipping: £11.10) ​

    I picked the Corsair due to it's
    and

    However it may be that it's nosier when it starts spinning up versus the be quiet! PSU.

    Which do people think would be the quieter PSU?

    Thinking about it more I think I'll get the RMx 750w, increased power gives more headroom before the 40% load is reached. Can't get more silent than 0RPM :D

    The problem with fan noise is that it's quite subjective.
