Recommended Power Supplies
PRODUCTS CHANGE, often without notice. The information provided here is accurate at time of posting, but there is no way to guarantee that the samples we review are exactly the same as the ones you buy. There are just too many variables......

Silent PSUs: Fortron Versus Silverstone :
Passive Power Supplies In The Lab
If you want a computer to truly be silent, you need to use passive cooling http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passive_cooling components. Whereas passive cooling components are more frequently available in the graphics card http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_processing_unit and CPU sector, they are something of a niche market http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niche_market when it comes to power supplies. This is not really a surprise though, given that purely passive units are considerably more expensive than those with fans, and they generally provide relatively poorer performance as well.

Our test compares the Zen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen 400 from Fortron (FSP) with a power output of 400 watts, and the Nightjar 450 from Silverstone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silverstone which provides a maximum of 450 watts. Both models can be purchased for less than $200.

PRO82+ 385W, Corsair CX400W ?
The local market for quality <400W models is small
Create a demand and I am sure distro will bring them in
