Is this one of the finest 1440p monitors on the market? James puts it through its paces.

    Quite a let down, not on a performance level, but why use a loud PSU in such an ideal media center system?

  • Joseph Mc

    wow what a terrible system, why such a high score if the PSU is ultra loud? its ideal for a media center until this is factored in.

  • blaze dragon

    its not the psu its the heatsink and fan that runs at 4000rpm to fix that all you have to do is replace the cooler with a silent low profile cooler as some coolers can be very large just dont reuse the thermal compound and be sure to clean all the old off

  • Hi blaze dragon, it’s definitely the PSU in my review unit that makes the noise as I turned the CPU fan off for a moment and the noise was still present.

  • I bought one of this zoostorm pc from http://www.rossdigital.co.uk and i found it really good performance. I think they are better than HP and cheaper.

    CPU’s don’t make any sound as it is attached to the motherboard what you all be hearing is the fan on the CPU but all these very rarely make a noise. What you will be hearing is the noise from the fan from the PSU (POWER SUPPLY UNIT) So if you want and clever enough you can change the fan on the PSU or get a new PSU FROM any computer shop. Good luck all
