Silent PSU

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What is a good little silent PSU.

Important factors are
-Cheap,does not have to be high quality but will be running 24/7
-Small as possible, will be in a uATX case
-Very quiet, preferably silent ;-)
-Only needs enough wattage to run a Q6600 and hard drive (Graphics will be onboard).

Ahh... I see in your edit now that you're using a uATX case. So you need a uATX power supply?

Thanks Jonny.

uATX selection is VERY limited. FSP, Enermax, Seasonic and PCP&C are the only companies that make quality units that I can think of. Of those, Seasonic is the quietest.

The Corsair hx520 I use is extremely quiet. I don't hear it at all, and my rig is really quiet too.
WC ftw!

I was looking at Small form factor PSU's last night, and the only one that caught my eye was this seasonic.

Dunno how quiet it is, but if it lives up to the seasonic name it will be of great quality.
Almost done...
