Default Power Supply

Well, I havnt posted here for a while so I need some advice please.
I was planning on getting a Hiper Type R 580 modular but I've heard underload it is quite noisy.

I was wondering if anyone could confirm this or recommend me a different PSU.

If anyone could recommend me a different PSU it must be:
A well known brand
About or under £70-100 or $128-184 USD.
Brought from Scan.co.uk, ebuyer.com, overclockers.co.uk or another UK deliverable online shop.

Thanks if anyone can help.

from what i can tell it is not noisy. (My case fans and hdd cooler are loud.) Ohh and the fans stay running for a extra five mins to get the extra heat out. (Can not hear it at all) I recommend it.
