Where is one for sale badatgames18?
http://www.overclock.net/other-compo...000-155-a.html

the Ax has different internals than a hx... so i'm not sure how quiet that one is since iirc it's not based off of seasonic, and i've never had an hx before.

Depends on who you ask. If you ask some gamer running crazy SLI super overclocked with 10 fans in their case, then yes it is super silent. If you ask someone who is trying to make a near-silent system (I say "near" because you can almost never have truly silent) using integrated graphics and passive CPU cooler, then the Silencer is super noisy.

I'll say this... most good quality PSUs that use 120mm or larger fans are quieter than the Silencers.

I'll also say this... PCP&C may have learned from their mistakes because some of the latest Silencers (but not all) use a 120mm fan, versus the typical 80mm fans they use.

You realize you just lost your "quiet" right there, right? You will want to find really quiet graphics cards that use dual axial fans, and just about any PSU will be quieter, especially under load. Once you go SLI, all bets are off.

Unless you're sure you'll do SLI in the future a Seasonic X-650 is the best unit. If you want to be SLI-ready (570's) then a Seasonic X-750.

I should have been more specific. I only need it to be quiet for when i'm doing recording. If i'm gaming or something I won't mind so much, but as long as i'm not doing anything thing to demanding on the GPU I should be fine, correct?

If this is the case I very much recommend the Seasonic X series as well.

My rig has yet to even spin the fan on my X650. Not to mention they are gold rated and modular.

Hey guys thanks for all the replies! So I decided to go with the one I was looking at. The Corsair Professional HX850W

I read a lot of really great reviews on it.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-13.html

The 2nd paragraph on that page really sold me on it though. I'll let yas know how it works out once everything's up and running.

other than that... antec has pretty quiet ones (hcp)
Corsair's AX-Series are built off of the Seasonic X-Series platform, which would explain their low noise levels.
