the 300watt stock psu in the sg05 is so loud.

it's like a jet.

I have intel i3 530. using.... 53watts.

and a ati 4770, single pci 6pin.

I have it positioned so that it is extracting hot air out of the system.

The South bridge which it is directly above is very hot - 65degrees C
The CPU is watercooled, so no internal fan apart from Rad and GPU.

1. Would flipping the PSU around help it much do you think?
2. What about my poor SB? How on earth will it be cooled then?
3. Any other ways to cool/ quiet down the PSU?

4. the 450watt SFX, considering similar hardware setup, it would have less load, = less heat/ noise?
