I was warned about Pixxo htpc power supplies being very loud. the primary reason i got it was because it was 450w and in a matx slim form factor. i do plan on putting some beefy componets in the case for gaming but the noise is unbelievable. the 80mm fan at the top was loud as well but pushed some serious air, as does the psu fan. with that being said i need a few ways to silence them on a uber cheap budget.
p.s. im not afraid to taking a few things apart.
