I heard Corsairs are pretty quiet. Can't really back it up since I don't have one, but I can tell you that my 2 years old LCpower is loud as hell and my 2 years old Enermax is noiseless. So based on experience Enermax's are pretty good

Looks like this guy agrees with me http://www.buildsilentpc.com/Silent-Power-Supplies.html
But I would expect Corsair to be more silent then Enermax, guess not

Most Seasonic X Series / Corsair AX Series / Super Flower Golden King (Kingwin Lazer Platinum) would not even turn on the fan for such a load. You can get a fanless unit for that kind of money, but they tend not to be cheaper than the above units anyway.

The majority of decent power supplies would be very quiet powering that configuration since the fan would be almost at the minimum set speed.

150 euros sounds like quite a high budget for a power supply to power such a low-power system (under 150W).

An Antec Earthwatts D series did just the trick for me at least. I can't hear a peep from it.

Antec Earthwatts 380D or 430D should do good. I would get the 380 if I were you, your system uses a very minimal amount of power.

The other's suggestions are good as well.

its only around 50 euros for one of these PSU's at the most..

Enermax = don't know if they have a long enough track record as far as how good and reliable they are, maybe someone can elaborate otherwise.

Yeah lol I just now realised that. 150€ for a psu for that rig?
No but seriously it's a waste of money to spend that much for it, except if you are planning on keeping it for when you upgrade your PC if you choose to do.

Otherwise you can get a corsair 500 or 600Watt for roughly 40-60€

Well I had mine (sig) for almost 3 years now and had no problems whatsoever, not technical nor with loudness (silent like... well something that's silent).

Unlike my LCpower, which I had for roughly the same time and I keep lubing that thing yet it's still loud LC Power

Enermax has a great track record, unless you're talking about their budget lineup like the lower NAXN series. (edit: to clarify, the NAXN are not manufactured by them, and it's only certain NAXN models that are no good) The Modu/Pro87+ are super quiet and very good performers. Many others have been pretty good to very good over the years. Revo85+ 1050, etc.

Personally, if I had to pick, based on prices at hardwareversand (though for a single item order, the shipping probably makes it not worth it)...

Corsair CX430 V2 (36,04 €)

Super Flower Golden Green Pro 450W (62,70 €)
