PSU howl and whine - need to replace I've had enough 'background noise' Suggestions on a replacaement (desktop/tower case) quiet psu most appreciated.

*sigh* What power requirements does your desktop require?

asmawa1, Jan 3, 5:18am
*sigh* If you read my post I am trying to find a ** QUIET ** psu. 600/650 watts or more - who knows, but I am trying for quiet!

I just oil inside the fan don't touch any other parts inside the PSU - can be a killer (not joking)

lostdude, Jan 3, 5:22am
*sigh* yeah, forgot to polish my crystal ball since everyone knew you required a ~600-650watt PSU.

asmawa1, Jan 3, 5:26am
I am asking for advice on quiet psu units The capacity is irrelevant to the question - suggest you look down the porcelain bowl instaed of a crystal ball!

Enermax Modu82+ 625W See review here:

I have one of these and it's lovely. Not cheap, but quality.

*sigh* learn to provide the right info so you can get a proper relevant recommendation. Just asking for 'quiet' can get hundreds of recommendations. Guess you think you're right with your idiotic POV.

Thanks .

In which case I reccommend a 0 Watt unit. They're damn quiet. Much quieter than the Enermax model above. They have to be custom made though, but are pretty cheap. I'd guess about $10

# 11 Nothing constructive to say - but couldn't help yourself from making a mess on the floor.

evoeater, Jan 3, 7:18am
What's wrong with my answer? Going by your requirements it's perfectly suitable

Silence is a virtue.

Always thought that was knowledge my self.

Actually there are 7 virtues: Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness & Humility. Silence should be the eighth.

Somone must be on the rag there's nothing wrong with 's response, recommend a 250w PSU and you'd have power/performance issues, gotta be informative if you want help, and respectful if you want a serious answer

Check out recommendations from - under recommended PSUs
