My power supply for my baby AT case is
starting to make some strange noises
occasionally (I actually think it's the fan). I want to replace it to preempt
any potential catastrophic failure. But,
I want to make sure the new one I get is quiet ... not some real noisy one. Is there someplace I can find recommendations for the quality of a power supply? Or does anybody know of one that is particularly quiet?

Send me more info on your power supply. IE:- Dimensions, power rating, atx or p8/p9? I may be able to help you.

I've recently started buyng 300 watt power supplies rather than 250 and their pretty quit overall.

I don't remember where I got them offhand.  Send me an email and I'll look it up.


Btw, I'm not looking for the points with this answer.  It's just I can't exactly remember where I bought them.

My computer is a baby AT case. I currently have a 250 W power supply
made by IBR Electronics, Inc.

It's approximate dimensions are 5.5" deep, 6" wide, 3.25"tall.

I'm leaning towards the Silencer 270 Slim from www.pcpowercooling.com. It costs $95. Ever since checking them out after reading sorgie's post, I've read
many good things about them.

djc2 >>> I gather from your further info that you are from America? If that is the case I am probably not best suited to offer you advice on buying a power supply, as I am from the U.K. and my list of suppliers wouldn't offer you the best price you could get. Even though some of the suppliers I use are from the U.S. Your needs will be different to mine (especially regarding A.C. input) and my good deal could be your rip off etc. Good luck any how.

like the place to go!
