Been a long time since I created a topic on here, but I need some advice.
The server in my signature has been getting on my nerves in terms of noise.
To reduce this, I consolidated some HDDs so reduced the amount of spinning rust from 7x HDDs to 5x HDDs.
I then also got some sound insulation foam and replaced the case fans with silent versions.
Its made a huge difference. The case is almost silent.
The only component making any real noise is the Power supply fan. The PSU is a PC&P Silencer (lol) 610W.
I was considering either: A) Replacing the fan in the PSU or B:) buying another PSU.
What silent PSU which can deal with 24/7 operation would you recommend? By using a PSU power calculator, I recon I need 390W. So min PSU would probably be a 500W unit.
Thanks for reading!
