Question Semi passive psu's


Prominent Member

I'm in the process of building another HTPC and I've been looking for a semi passive psu to power it. Can anyone recommend a good fully modular one? My specs will be as follows:

I3 6100
8gb DDR4
Nvidia 1030 (possible upgrade to 1050ti Kalmx if light gaming is required)
Up to 4 hdds and 1 ssd

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Which PSU form factor do you need?

Unless this is a windowed case or sitting very close to your ear then it's unlikely to be worth going modular or semi-passive. Most PSU fans are very quiet at the sort of loads you're talking about.

Can't go wrong with a Corsair PSU
