All higher end Seasonic units shut their fan off at minimal load anyways. My HX850 did, although I wish I could have ran it at 100% instead.

Oh? I didn't know that! Ok, well does that SSR450 shut off the fan at minimal load too?

Installed the CMX Corsair 400 and all is well. Actually much better because it was so much easier to install [the Corsair was substantially shorter than the PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk III Series 400W, and the mini itx case didn't much room to spare]!
