Quiet modular PSU?

Which PSU is the quietest?

Should be efficient and modular or semi and at least 400w

Any suggestions?

also any experiences with fanless psu's like the Silverstone nightjar? Is cooling and coil whine an issue?

price isn't really an issue.

the nightjar 520 is excellent (tier 1 made by seasonic)

seasonic fanless also tier 1

thanks, is overheating or coil whine an issue with the fanless ones? its going to be in a mini itx so cooling won't be the best.

Both are very efficient (platinum), even if the case is itx you should have some ventilation... What components will you be using?

as of now looks like i7 65w tdp version noctua nh-9 low cooler asus strix 960 and an evo SSD

in a jonsbo umx1 case... not the best for cooling... has 1 120mm fan which i will replace with a noctua

you should be fine... just do as mrluckypants96 said.... Defintely get a pwm fan that moves a lot of air, noctua are great.

thanks guys, any quiet PSU's that have fans? i said price isn't an issue but $150 for a PSU is also kind of overkill... I would settle for a very quiet fan model as I probably wouldn't notice the difference... except in my wallet...lol

If you want one with lots of headroom for the future and even better than my first suggestion.

This one about 20 bucks more.
