Silient PSU Advice for HTPC


Standard Member
Hi, I have built an HTPC that’s situated in my living room stacked with my other AV devices. The case I have is the Thermaltake IP Mozart which I really like but when I assembling the PC I used a cheap 600w PSU from an old case which I find really noisy, even when watching TV. I have a Gigabyte AMD770 motherboard, ATI Radeon 4650 graphics card and 3 1tb drives possibly more in the near future powered inside the case. My PC mostly gets used for downloading and either watching video or acting as a media server to other devoices throughout the home, with also surfing and other normal PC tasks.

Can anyone recommend a quality silent running PSU that’ll do the job for hopefully no more that the £50-£60 mark ?

Heres one within your price range ,

Rasurbo EAP Eco and Power Quiet PSUs

What you should be looking for in general is a PSU with a 120mm fan and a noise level around the 16db or 17db mark.

There are many more PSU's on that site , but they cost a bit more , thats the cheapest one they have.
The site specializes in quiet components , so if you like , use it to get some brand names and model numbers , then shop around and see if you can get the model cheaper somewhere else. I doubt the site is the most cost conscious.
