Hi, I'm starting a new build and I'd like to use the SilverStone ML08 case. http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=607
Other considerations 1) I will not overclock. 2) I do not plan to upgrade the build. 3) I'd like a quiet PC. Not silent, just not loud. I'll be using this build for streaming and watching movies so I don't want to be distracted by excessive fan noise. 4) Build is designed for gaming and (eventually) 4k streaming. This build is designed to be easily moved around the house as needed plugging into different TVs or Monitors. 5) I have good experience building ATX towers, but this is my first small case with smaller components.
I understand that this case only supports SFX & SFX-L power supplies, but I've read in other forums that I should only use a true ATX PSU with this build mostly because the SFX PSUs don't generate enough power. Given my core components, can I get by with an SFX PSU? If not, then I guess I need to change my case.
Assuming I can use this case, please recommend a PSU. It's my understanding that the SFX-L is quieter so I'm leaning towards that.
Are SFX PSUs generally just as reliable as ATX PSUs?
I know there are a few other minor incompatibles I'm still working out. Advice on those is welcomed, but my main concern is the PSU.
