Hello. :)

I was wondering is there a power supply that offers a 2 speed fan?

Basically, the fan will operate at normal speed, and, will switch to
high speed when the temperature exceeds a certain level.

What about sensors that you can attach to the processor, hardrive,
and the heat sinks of the power supply, that will trigger the fans
speed according to the temperature?

Is there such a beast?

Thanks.

there are many variable speed fan PSU available, some of them have user adjustable knobs on the unit (you manually set the fan where you wish) some have temp sensors (my TT PurePower 420 for example has this).


as an alternative you could get something w/ a 120mm fan (that would be pretty damn quite to start with and not worry about it.

this for example

Those have 3 speed settings, huge fan so extra quiet, and speeds up when it reachers a certain temp.
