Prodigy supports ATX, I suggest you go that route. You won't have to worry about noise when it comes to ATX power supplies, every single one I've owned (OCZ's and Corsair's) have all been un-noticeable.
ATX power supplies have more space separating transformers, capacitors, etc., as well as a 120mm fan to deliver more air.
The reason I asked about noise with SFX power supplies is because the components are packed together, and the fan is only 80mm. To dissipate the amount of heat, the 80mm fan will have to blow much harder than a 120mm fan of an ATX supply
