    Where to find a good quiet power supply for overclocking system

    I have almost created my new build with the below components:
    • RAMPAGE IV GENE: Asus ROG, X79, DDR3-1866, 2xSATA3, USB 3.0, GBLAN, mATX
    • Intel Core i7-3820, 3.6 GHz, 10MB, LGA2011, BOX
    • DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Red 16GB (2x8GB) 1866MHz CL10 1.5V
    • GeForce GTX 680 2 gb

    I have not yet decided the psu and I want someone to suggest me the same, I will be overclocking the system so i want to have a quiet power supply. I also wanted to know form where can I find it. Any help regarding the same will be highly appreciated.

    I have recently bought “NZXT HALE90 80 Plus Gold 750 Watt Power Supply with Modular Cable HALE90-750-M (White) “from amazon, it is costly than the ones that have been mentioned here but it is quite worth, You can get it for $137. As far as the feature is concerned it supports latest INTEL and AMD CPUs like Corei7, i5, AMD Phenom II X4, X3 as well as GPU’s. It has a single +12V rail for maintaining the stability and High quality Capacitors for lasting longer. It is said to be Ideal for latest DX11 GPUs.

    Re: Where to find a good quiet power supply for overclocking system

    I think the best option will be “CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX750 (CMPSU-750AX) 750W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply” I think it is costliest amongst all but it is worth. It supports latest ATX12V v2.31 and EPS12V v2.92 standard and is also backward compatible with ATX12V v2.2 and ATX12V v2.01 system. It is an 80 PLUS Gold certified power supply for providing better efficiency and reducing electricity bill. it has an ultra-quiet 120mm San Ace fan from Sanyo Denki with a 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors.
