Have you seen this power supply from Kustom pc expensive though
From a reveiw here http://www.silentpcreview.com/modul...ns&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=90&page=1
The proSilence PCS-350W fanless PSU's strengths:
Heavy build quality, with massive heatsinks
Very good voltage regulation
Good self-cooling within rated power limits
Truly silent: 0 dBA!
The proSilence PCS-350W fanless PSU's weaknesses:
Output power could be higher
Misleading 350W in model designation
Short ATX and 12V cables to motherboard
The proSilence PCS-350W is a solid, perfectly viable fanless PSU well-suited for use in the vast majority of quiet desktop PCs. Its use does not obviate the need for fans elsewhere in the PC. A fan for case cooling is probably necessary to evacuate the heat generated by the CPU, hard drive, RAM and other components. Most systems will also require a fan for CPU cooling. Regardless, the proSilence PCS-350W deserves a strong recommendation for being the first fanless drop-in substitute for a ATX12V PSU.
Only 170W ooch!, I didn't think the voltage regulation figures where that great. I would expect +- 1% in most cases.
It was the fact that the reveiw suggested that you would still need a case fan, might as well stick with a decent single fan psu instead, cheaper and more efficent at delivering power.
I bough one of the pyramid case fan controllers from quietpc to try in an Athlon 2400+ desktop. It seems to works very well. Nice to have it idle when the machine is idling and then respond when the case is crunching numbers, case temp seems permanently 30-32 degrees, Athlon 40-54 degrees.
Perhaps this might work nicely with the above psu as it would keep the mainboard more temperature stable.
Still, really expensive compared to the wonderful Zalman 300w.
I was going to get one of these for free if I could find a Danish guy a gold DIGN HCPC case, but I couldnt' find the one he wanted. It was a 550W one too!
