    Is that a silent psu?

    I am looking for one that is ultra silent which one can not hear much.

    As the saying goes, you gets what you pay for.
    I have bought from these peeps (Quiet PC) on several occasions, always good service.

    Have a look at this one.

    zalman ATX Noiseless PSU

    There are cheaper ones listed and noticed one at the end of the list which you can get B Grade.

    Modular is the way to go, improves air flow around the case by not having the 'spare' cables not plugged in.

    I have a Tagan 550w, quiet as a mouse....
