As far as the best, I just don't know that, but I do like this particular PSU from PCPC.

And I also want it to be modular.

Well, it's just a bit more expensive, but this Corsair is also a good bet and modular. I'm not certain on it's noise performance, but the reviews point towards being rather decent in that area.

The corsair 620HX is a very decent modular PSU but its not the quietest in that performance bracket, it's not very noisy but its not very quiet either.

You might want to consider Seasonic.

honestly the Zalman is probably the quietest decent PSU there is.

I think there are some Silverstone fanless ones but I'm not entirely sure how good they are.

Maybe the quietest, but certainly not the best of 600 Watts Power supplies.

There are some power supplies out there with adjustable fan speeds.. So keep that in mind.
