Nexus Damptek is also a good alternative, mentioned by someone on this forum saying that Nexus's melmaine sumthing stuff (i can't spell)material is good for sound absortion. On lots of acoustic foam sites, the good stuff was made from the same melmaine stuff that Nexus uses. Also its cheaper than Ac...

i would go with the nexus if you can't find the seasonic super tornado
after working with 120mm psu, i've never gone back to 80s. the 120 are way more quiet, and move alot more air.
my super tornado runs idle at 800 rpm, its amazing

With the D version of that heatsink i think it might be ok if you used it w/o a fan, BUT make sure u have a decent amount of airflow in ur case. I used a C version on my 9800 pro with no OP1, ran fine, but heats up when i run 3D games, i had a 120mm fan at the back so, thats acceptable airflow.
