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?

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.
