Re: best long term psu silent

The PSU takes AC mains in and outputs several DC voltages, +12v and +5v and others. Those are called rails and you can measure them. For example, the ATX specs says that the 12 volt rail should be 12 volts plus or minus 5%. So between 11.4 and 12.6 volts. One way to know if a PSU is failing is to m...

Re: best long term psu silent

the question remains valid since no one seems to have the knowledge to answer if the psu can actually damage other components considering the protections device. sorry if the question is redundant for you

Re: what should i buy (i dont do 3d stuf. i do a bit of video editing)

I'd keep the PSU, case and optical reader. (It's the same that I actually have!) Get new motherboard (B450 or B550 based, see below), 2x8 GB 3,200 MHz RAM, 1 TB SATA SSD. As for CPU/graphics I see two options: 1. A Ryzen APU (3000G or better) that you expect to keep for at least a couple of years. ...

See above. I don't recommend any more $'s spent on the existing CPU platform. It's obsolete and power hungry.

Figure out what your budget really is and then we can go from there.

Re: best long term psu silent

Well, your post was a little rambly, didn't actually say the PSU model, didn't list the CPU (so hard to gather what power use is), you spent some time explaining the current PSU's downsides, and it appeared you were looking for a replacement.
