Have problem with Corsair HX850i (( It has electronical noise. Want to change it. Whinking about RM850 or AX860

  • 55 months ago

Bought today Corsair RM850 - absolutely silent! Nice.

  • 22 months ago
  • 3 points

Hello! If it's still in your build or if you just remember, could you tell me please which of the models you bought? RM850i, RM850x or something else? I'm also recording audio, so would prefer this silent PSU. Thank you!

  • 22 months ago
  • 4 points

HX850i - had electronical noise, selled. RM850 - was silent, broken after 2 years. RM550 - was silent. RM550x - was silent. RM850i - had electronical noise. HX750i - is silent, using at this time. This type of noise is a lottery, but i think best chance to get absolutely silent psu - is corsair RMx series. You can buy RM550x, if dont use sli. I think this will be best choise.

  • 22 months ago

Thank you so much for your answer! I think i will try RM850x hoping it will work silently too, at least i can get it with 5 years warranty, so if it breaks, i'll replace it.

I also wanted to ask you about your connection of your Fireface. Are you using a firewire pci card? I'm asking because i've heard firewire cards have problems on windows 10. I'm currently connecting my m-audio via firewire pci card on pc with win7, so worrying that i won't be able to buy an appropriate firewire pci for windows 10 on the new pc, which at least has drivers. Or, probably, it will be a problem to solve somehow. Or is your sound card connected via usb/thunderbolt/whatever else?

  • 22 months ago

I connect UFX, and 2xXTC through USB. Dont have any problems. I think Firewire is outdated interface.

You have a rad build, sir! I love what you did with your graphics card, I plan on doing the same to my next card. Did that void your warranty on the GPU?

Also, I see in the comments that you had used NF-F12 fans, but it looks like you upgraded to the NF-a12x25. Do you notice any difference in noise or temps after the switch?

Thanks!

  • 15 months ago
  • 1 point

Fans can be mounted without voiding warranty. Yes, i changed fans to A12x25. They are much better in temps and noise than f12.

Very cool - thanks for the reply, and I hope the new set up works great!

Keep us updated :)

I'm toying with the idea of a white Meshify / Noctua build with a 9900k or 9700k. But I'm thinking of putting 3 of Noctua's new nf-a12x25 fans as intakes in the front (instead of 2 x 140) and, for the CPU cooler, using a u12s with two of the new a12x25 in push/pull. In fact, I believe Noctua is planning to release a new u12s in Q1 2019 with that fan configuration and more heatsink surface area. I think that'll be an awesome product.

I'm def working towards a very quiet but high-performance build.

What are your thoughts about your two exhaust fans? Would you say that the one on the back is most important? How valuable do you think the top exhaust fan is in terms of temperatures (and, I suppose, silence based on ability to lower RPMs)? Either way, will definitely be interested in the update with the 9900k and that CPUs thermals. Thanks!

  • 12 months ago

Update: I canceling order of Gene XI. I detected that it's cpu socket position is about 22mm highter and 10+mm lefter than standard atx asus boards. This will result D15 will not allow me to mount 25 mm thick top a14 fan to meshify. I can buy pair of a12x15 pwm, but dont want to do that compromise. I will wait Apex XI, or may be will buy Hero XI or Code XI. But only Apex XI can handle my 4400 mhz DDR4 Corsairs. S12A is best noctua case fan. It cost much cheaper, and have same or better performance for case cooling. And it is quetest noctua fan. I think all exhaust must be = or a little lower than all intake. If u want 3x12 at intake, 3x12 at exhaust will be perfect. But a12x25 are very much money) I think 3x a14pwm = 1xs12a pwm is optimal value and performance. About cpu coler - a recommend to buy D15, or wait it's updated version with 1 more heatpipe. This is best noctua cpu cooler and it is quiet. New intel cpus are very hot. Update 2: loock at new photos, i modyfied front dust filter. Removed original hard to clean foam from inside of mech, and added two aluminium 140mm dust filters from ebay. Easy to do, and have much of profits: 1) Front mesh better looking 2) Better airflow and lower temps 3) Lower noise 4) Easy to clean filters

980 ti would have been a better decision man. It is not too late! Return those things and get dual 980 TI. Those things are for professional work. They run off the same chip as titan x except less vram and cuda cores. titan x was not actually intended for gaming (this comes as a shock to many) but it was rather a less expensive quadro with less pixel accuracy for content creation which the titan x makes up for it in some in-game performance thus the idea that it is a gaming card. Go with those 980 ti windforce cards. 650 bucks for dual titan x performance (a little less) And since directx 12 will allow vram stacking, (this is also a shock and everyone will say "no sir, vram never stacks") you will have 12gb of total vram and two titan x chips to run your professional programs. Hats off though for the phantom case, 4790k, lg widescreen monitor, and choice of gigabyte gpu. Upvote!

Hello! I have bought GTX980 cards in last year for low price. GTX980Ti are very expensive today in Russia. We have very high dollar rate today, + 50-75% of normal cost. And i don't use Graphic cards for professional programs. Only for games. For sound recording i use sound card RME Fireface UFX.

It would be cool if you could upgrade to the new Intel I7-6700K quad core. But you would have to get a new motherboard since it has a LGA1151 socket. But it would be cool though

Hi fellow musician!

That RME rig is spectacular!! I use UA Apollos, but my partner in business uses RME. So I know the badassness of the equipment.

One thing... If you can 15 grands on one PC to game and watch videos, why not split that in to two rigs, one for work an one for gaming.

The reason why I say this is because, as a professional, having a multi-purpose computer is never a good idea. I know there are mixed emotions and various opinions on that, but I always strongly recommend to upcoming artist to always separate their machines so drivers and functionality won't overlap causing, very often, system failures and various problems.

I mean...the built is impressive, for sure! But I would spend 15 grands (and I did) on a Server slave PC where you need more than 128GB or ram ECC and dual processor ( I have two 8-cores for a total of 16-Cores Xeons).

That's just me though. Well done on the build. :)

Hi, Can you help me by answering the questions?
Do you hear the cpu coin whine when you have your ear close to the back or the front of the cpu when it run?
When you plug in your speaker or headphone, do you hear that coin whine on your speaker?
What is your graphic card? I am having that problem. The coin whine is not loud and unnoticeable if you are not in a quite room, but when you plug in the speaker, it is so loud.
I use Asus z390 E gaming mother board. I am looking for the solution for my issue. I hope it is because of the board that cause the cpu to sound like that so it is cheaper and I have more options to replace it. Any helps from other builder of asus and intel chip are appreciated! I got the same noise like these video below:
