Quieting the Enermax & other thermistor fan PSUs

Power
The Enermax EG-365P-VE is a popular example of a thermistor-controlled, dual fan PSU. Despite the promise of whisper, its performance in the noise arena is ordinary, and it usually becomes one of the 3 core noise sources in a typical PC. This hands-on article shows how to reduce its noise output so that it is just a whisper, barely audible from even just a couple of feet away. The basic methodology can likely be applied to any PSU with a thermistor-controlled fan that is too noisy. But be careful of high voltages!
