the qtec 550w for around £25 has served me very well in several systems buta bit noisy

enermax make wonderful psus and i have 3 of them. The 565 is virtually silent but they do retail at over £100 and they now make a 680w version!


i've also got the qtec gold 550w psu , which as you say is a bit noisy , do you think that relacing the internal fans (i've had to do one already cos it died) with silent ones would be cheaper than buying a silent psu.
