Apple Boot Camp

Apple Computer on Monday posted to its website an update to Boot Camp, its software dual-boot solution designed to allow users of Intel-based Macs to install and run Microsoft’s Windows operating system. The Cupertino, California based company said the 143MB Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta “contains several updates and is intended for all new and previous users of the software.”

However, the feature set listed on Apple’s Boot Camp website is identical to that of previous versions, suggesting the only improvements are support for the latest Intel-based Macs — mainly the Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro.

I had a read of the two reviews and they were very helpfully but its not the Strider I wanted to know about but the Zeus ST75ZF none modular.
I did find some fan dB's on them see below.
Strider ST75F = 39.1 DB Max
Zeus ST75ZF = 34. DB Max
Etsis ET750 = 34 DB Max

I have read that the Strider is quieter than the Zeus but not according to the figures in some of the reviews I have read.
So I'm looking for anyone who has used one to try and say how loud they actually are as I have nothing to compare the mentioned DB's too.

Thanks

Etasis 750w and Zeus 750w are actually the same unit. Etasis makes PSU's for Silverstone.

The fan in the Strider may have a higher dba output, but they throttle it more as it can shift mroe air being a 120mm fan.

I'm beginning to understand how it works now, its all down to the throttling and fan size and not just the DB's.
Interesting to know that they are the same psu.

It would still be interesting if anyone who owns/uses the Etasis 750w or Zeus 750w to know what they think about how load they think it is and if they have any good or bad views on them.

Thanks

At the bottom of this page are some recordings of the 850w Zeus (uses same fan as 750w)

Compare that with the Strider 750w might give you an idea of the difference.

Had a listen and although the tone of the fans are different they both seem to be about the same loudness to me, though I do have an earache at the moment. The psu I'm using at the moment is from the kids PC its a Magna 600w with the two fans, If they were half as load as this one I would be pleased.

If you are looking for one of the most silent PSU's on the market I'd check out the OCZ GameXStream unit or the FSP Epsilon (both are essentially the same PSU - so go with whatever is cheapest).

Modula cabling is sexy, but I think u need to be looking for the sexiness when u go shopping for them as opposed to considering it a basis for either/or on a few psus.

The motherboard in this PC is a DFI Lanparty 875p-t and for the last year I have been plagued with system reboots. I think it was due to the Antec 550w Truepower that went bang. The power supply I end up with needs to be very stable and fairly quiet as well.

The reason behind looking at the Zeus ST75ZF was to future proof, I'm hoping to upgrade in a years time to a new setup with quad Sli cards or maybe go towards the up and coming DX10 cards. But this PC is in the living room so has to be fairly quiet as well.

I have a very load Magna 600w in there temporary and its driving every one mad with the noise. :(

There are very few power supplies that combine both silence and high-power. Its just not possible without sacraficing something. The closest i've seen so far is the OCZ/FSP units as they dont kick out much heat.

I will read up fully today on those two PSU's. I can see where your coming from with it. I suppose I've been spoilt with my Antec for to long.
