maybe corsair slipped spcr some "funding" in order to be on top of the list :lol:

i wonder how the antec neoHE430 would compare to the corsair hx520 or the vx430 in terms of noise

well like i said, i see many posts about replacing the fan in the vx as well as the hx.

is this the only solution for optimal silence (other than fanless) ?

which PS optimal for Q6600?

ofcourse im refering to optimal power-to-noise ratio.

will a HX520 be enough?
(there will be two maybe three harddrives and a single g8600)

then again i just saw some posts in which people are trying to replace the fan in their corsair PS'
is there a quieter/more preferred choice?

Doesn't this really depend on how much you want to spend? Unless you're going for a bleeding edge setup, the Ninja without a fan on it should cool just about any CPU as long as the back 120mm fan is within say 1" from the edge of the fins. The choice of vidcard could impact overall heat in the syst...
