My psu is 160mm long and fits. There's a lot of room but the longer your psu the less space there is for cable management or a radiator if your water cooling.

What do you guys think of the F1 suppressor? Do you think they'll make a square style V21 also?

I have the Thermaltake but my PSU vibrates a lot and is noisy, i can't stand it anymore... i want to buy a fanless psu but it need space on top so the air flows correctly, im afraid there wont be any space because the psu fits so tight under the motherboard im afraid it will suffocate there...

am also thinking of just switching case for the Silencio 352, very dissapointed with the Thermaltake so far, had it for 2 months.. i find is very noisy.

I didn't notice you were talking about a fanless PSU. In that situation, I'd probably just install with the vent toward the bottom off the case and remove the dust filter.

But IMO, I'd go with a quality PSU that has a good quality fan. Most high quality PSUs now have a hybrid fan feature that only turns the fan on when the power draw hits a certain threshold. Before that threshold the fan doesn't run at all.

Other than the slightly different front panel and the included filters for the vented side panels, I don't see any difference.

Mines very quiet but I am water cooled, sometimes it can just be a case of jamming a pice of paper under a vibrating fan or psu or tighting or losing a screw to stop the noise or get some new fans. The case will only be loud if something is vibrating against it.

Most psu's with 140mm fans are pretty quiet. My last 2 psu's were 140mm fans both almost silent.

Alright i'll try something tonight before buying new gear, i used to have watercooling also (H60) but it was noisy, could be faulty i need to exchange it.

Corsair RM-x and RM-i is dead silent when on idle, and very very silent on load too.

I have a Thermaltake Smart 550w and it's the source of the problem, i took apart my PC like 3 minutes ago, and i pluged the power into the PSU and it was where this "rattling sound" comes from.

SO my #2 problem is i don't think i can get the Fanless CPU since it needs space on top so the air flows correctly, and the case dosent offer that.

so you're saying the corsairs PSU are virtually silent ? I need something like.. DEAD STONE SILENT. Otherwise i don't mind investing in a new case and Fanless PSU so i can work in silence in my office.
