A quiet power supply (or PSU), is an essential component in a quiet computer or quiet Home Theater multi-media PC system. In a standard ATX PC case, the power supply is normally attached directly to the outside of the chassis; therefore the noise the power supply generates is directly vented to the outside. Near silent and quiet power suppliies often incorporate silent running and larger diameter fans (such as 120mm or more) along with efficient circuits and heatsinks – all designed to help towards reducing unwanted heat and computer noise.
Quiet PC USA offers quiet ATX power supplies from 360W to over 1000W by Zalman, Enermax and NZXT, and also offer an anti-vibration Quiet Power Supply Gasket by Fansis.
SPECIAL OFFER MAIL-IN-REBATE ON SELECTED ENERMAX POWER SUPPLIES: Enermax are offering mail-in-rebates of up to $40 on certain quiet power supplys. See individual pages for details.
