click here for a site that offers quiet fans of all shapes, sizes, and types. they do quiet power supplies, quiet cpu heatsink/fan units, and lots lots more....... my order was recieved within 3 working days and was exactly what i had ordered. Prices for PSU's are £30 up wards. how much do you want to spend........ cpu heatsinks £15 ish upwards. loads more- check it out. loads of quiet goodies.
Just a word of warning there is a dangerous amount of stored electricity in a PSU even after, and for some time after,it has been switched off. the fan is probably soldered to contacts inside the case and if your machine is fairly new, opening the PSU will invalidate any warranty on it.
but if you decide to go ahead PLEASE be very carefull, switch off the PSU at the back of your machine and turn machine on again at the front start button, turn off and pull plug from mains and leave for at least 24 hours to be on safe side. continue with caution, or buy a new quiet PSU from click here good luck.
