well, yes. it is a bit noisy on load. so with sf450 it is 90W and with sf600 it is 120W you can keep silent (if you have proper ventillation). I tried a simple load test with compiling kernel and also running some 4k to load the videocard, too. the whole system must be around ~120W at load, so I had only the lowest range of rpm.Nice...hope to see updates...as said before i'm curious to see a tom's hardware rewiew of silverstone sx700lpt so we can do a objective comparasion between them. For my build i would to buy a sf450 but on pcpartpicker i saw 290w tdp and a 450w would be a bit smaller and noisy...
and there is one more thing: 90W no fan is true at 25C ambient temperature. so if you warm up the case then it is possible that during idle mode you still will have the psu fan on while (and if) the internal of the case cools down.
with the side of the case down I can not make the PSU fan move looks like the video card and cpu produce enough heat to warm up the case. no mprime nor stress or kernel build is enough to make it spin. And the CPU cores are also much cooler (70C vs 83C) with a Scythe Shuriken Rev.B.
