OK, I want to get a silent PSU, but I don't want to spend $250 for a <A HREF="http://www.silentmaxx.net/silent_products/power_supplie..." target="_new">passive-cooled 350W</A>. I looked around and found a couple good candidates and I'm curious if any of you have an opinion one way or the other.
<b>Vantec ION 400</b>
Fan speed settings: Low, Medium, Auto (fans are temp controlled)
<b>Silentmaxx ProSilence 420</b>
19-??db(A) (I couldn't find an acoustic upper limit)
No fan speed settings (fans are always temp controlled)
No output AC
I'm leaning toward the Vantec, but does anyone know what kind of fans it has? I would like to replace them with Verax/Papst if it doesn't already have them.
You know those $36 Fortron 350W power supplies at Newegg? I just got one, the 120mm fan is adjastable and extremely quiet even at it's highest speed.
