Can anyone please recommend a ~500W PSU that's no more than 140mm deep and ideally makes as little noise as possible?
A few days ago I built my long-dreamed-about Skylake computer (parts listed below) and played several days of surprisingly smooth GTA V at 2560x1440.
The only problem that I've run into is that the SilverStone SX500-LG power supply makes a very annoying chirping/clicking sound when under medium load.
(It's silent when first switched on, and under heavy load it makes a nice hum.)
I had read about other people experiencing this same problem but hoped I'd get lucky. As it is very distracting I plan to return it and buy a different PSU.
My machine should use 250W at most, so I think a 500W PSU is enough. My main requirement is that it be quiet.
