Thread Starter 
Hello, I have been looking for a new PSU but need some help.
I have a Budget of $260 Australian max. But my case (Kandelf LCS) Has the PSU mounted to its side and a HD cage next to it. Is the any 750w PSU's that dont have fans like - ? thanks

The Silencer 750 only has a 80mm fan in the back. It is quite expensive though, around $200 US.

I'm not sure if you're planning on an upgrade soon or not, but the Silencer 750 would actually be overkill on your current rig. The Silencer 610 would do the trick for even less (it's around $150 U.S., I believe).

Good luck with whatever you choose.

Higher watts do not mean anything! It depends on how the amperages are and most definitely what you will be using for, not that I do not want to help you achieve the BEST PSU for you, but it is the one that works the best for you. Read how PSU works.
Quote:
Voltages & Amperage: Only the +3.3V, +5V, +5VSB & +12V are used by modern computers. Spec is usually +/- 5%. When the original ATX spec was written the +3.3V & +5V were far more stressed by heavy usage demands than they are in today’s computers. Almost any high quality ATX spec PS of 300Watts or more can supply far more +3.3V & +5V amperage than today’s computers require. Today’s computers, especially the AMD A64’s and the latest Intel's stress the +12V rail the most, requiring far more amperage than was originally called for in the original ATX spec for the +12V rail. Video cards can be the biggest +12V resource hogs!

Wattage: Voltage times Amperage equals Wattage. Wattage is the ability to do work; it can be converted into Horse Power. A PS’s wattage rating is the total combined wattage output of all the rails combined. Older ATX designs created most of their wattage in the +3.3 & +5V rails, creating very little on the +12V rail. Newer ATX12V & ATX12 V2.0 designs are creating ever more wattage on the +12V rail, to meet the needs of today’s & tomorrow’s computers.
To see why total wattage should never be used to select a power supply, but that the properly allocated wattage is very important in selecting the proper PS, please click on the following link to the ONLY "Power Supply Calculator" that I can & DO RECOMMEND, provided by & constantly updated by "mnemonik23": http://www.extreme.outervision.com/
This is an excerpt from the guide. I advise you to try using the calculator for your rig, after that, then you can see what should be your minimum that you might need, then maybe add a little more to get a good PSU.
