Default Can i have some PSU recommendations :D

Howdy...

I would like to buy a new PSU. My main reason for buying one is i would like one quieter than the one i already have...

It must:

- Be at least 400 Watts...

- Be QUIET

- be the 'best bang for buck'

- Look good...

Thats about all really. Anyone know any good reputable ones? Thanks!

PS, im in the UK and buy my stuff from either eBuyer.com, thecoolingshop.com, or overclock.co.uk so if these websites stock the PSU's you recommend it would be helpful

Well I just bought this from overclock:

http://www.overclock.co.uk/customer/...roductid=17906

It does seem to be very quiet, although it's difficult to hear with the noise of the rest of the computer. The glow is nice too.

I've been reading some of the reviews for that thermaltake one. Some say its noisey, some say its quiet...so im not sure as i would prefer a quiet one really...

This is what one guy said in a review of the thermaltake one...

The only thing I am upset about with this PSU is that the second fan is on top and basically pushes the air into the ceiling of my case instead of into an open area. Oh well.
Did he put it in upside down??

Yep best bang for buck, ever. Period. Best bang .

I have one, and it's not completly silent, but if you have a case fan, it's most likely noisier than the PSU.
