On the other hand, the 600W units fan cannot be replaced while the 450W unit has fans available that you can use to make it more quiet.
So if you really want to find out what fits your needs best, post in one of the SFX PSU topics, where people used those units for a long time and know all their merits.
Ahh so you just bought the Silverstone short cable kit correct?
Yeah, back when I still had my 450W one I had to purchase the flat cables seperately, and at the time, SilverStone had just released them and every NCASE user and their buddies were buying them up so I got a set for $48... now they sell for $22...
Then when I decided to go for the 600W PSU (since it had the intelligent fan control), I was delighted to see that flat cables came standard, so I'm using those now.
Cool. I did end up posting the question in the power supply section as per iFreilicht advice. After you factor in the cable kit the 600W is around the same price as the 450W so it's not really a cost thing, it's more about efficiency, noise etc.
All I see are boxes! Any cases built yet that can be shown off?
FYI my Sapphire Fury Nano arrived and suffers from severe coil whine so I'm RMA'ing for another unit. Hopefully the new one will be good.
Just letting everyone know that some ID-COOLING low profile coolers on Amazon are extremely cheap at the moment ($9.99 for $40-$50 coolers).
Shipping time is long, ETA for my cooler (I ordered an IS-60) is Oct. 22 - Nov. 8, but since I'm saving $50, then it's worth it.
Small enough to fit in the Osmi, yet still has an 120mm fan and lots of heatpipes.
Here's a link to their Amazon store page:
Wow nice prices. Not that I can take advantage of this deal but what specific model did you get?
Amazon.ca is terrible compared to .com for selection.
Just a quick update on where we are. I'm assembling cases just now, but it's not without problems. There are some small misalignments (being first production run), so I need to do little adjustments on every single Osmi case. Also, mother board stand offs I got from other supplier are 8mm instead of 6mm (which I ordered), so I'm waiting for replacement. If that arrives today or tomorrow, I will ship first around 20 units on Friday.
Sorry to hear about the issues glad to hear that they're all fixable though. Should we assume we're not part of the first 20 if we haven't received an email from HG-computers confirming case color choice?
Hello all. I joined today to let people know that I received the email asking to pick my color (white). Hope more people are getting these emails today
You'll wanna take off that fan grill, because it will make much noise when the fan ramps up
