    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] Truly Silent PSU ?

    There are a lot of claims out there that a PSU is silent running until you install it and find that it is anything but. Is there a 400 watt silent PSU that anyone can recommend that is 'nearly' silent if not completely silent ?

    Cheers,

    It's kind of expensive, but it's fanless.

    If that SilverStone suggested by Midknyte is out of budget range,

    Had no real noise issues with the following models with fans...
    *Seasonic brand and Corsair HX series.
    The Corsair VX450, I believe is also manufactured by Seasonic.

    *I did encounter one model where one of the wires was making contact with the fan. Disassembled the casing, repositioned the wire a little bit, nice and quiet. I think that one, was just some shoddy assembly job by a worker at the plant.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for your replies. The Silverstone PSU certainly looks interesting but at 115 (the cheapest I could find) it's a bit out of my reach although if the idea catches on then no doubt that price will reduce in time, however for now I'll look into the suggestions by Shinma.

    Cheers,
