I'm planning to kick out the last 'troublemaker' in my PC. It is currently a Cooler Master M2 Silent 420 W PSU, whose fan is not a screamer but since my system is completely fanless at low load, I've choosen the PSU to be dead silent as well. At least at low loads. My system temps are pretty ok, something between upper 20's and lower 50's (CPU) C° at full load.
I have a Asrock z87m Pro 4 board with an i5 4670 (I use the Intel graphics), 4 GB RAM, 1 SSD, 1 HDD, 1 CD Rom. Case is a Cooler Master Silencio 650 pure. As per my power meter the system uses something between 15 W (idle) and 50 W (load).
I've spent a lot of time for research on PSU's and it seems to me that the PSU choice is the hardest choice to make, especially when it comes to reasonable pricing. Too short cable lenght here, bad reviews there. Actually I'm confused.
Maybe you guys can recommend me something which is at least semi-passive at low loads or fanless. Modular cables are nice but not necessary. I don't want to spend more than 90 € (120 $).
