I recently bought a SS-401HT from Xcase for £53.00 including delivery. I find it to be extreamly quiet (not silent) and therefore recommend it highly. But one thing surprised me though.

Hentai -- Is your board passively cooled? If yes then you don't need to bother with the north bridge fan connector. I think Gigabyte left the fan connector on the motherboard so that overclockers could use it to install a fan if they needed it.

Resonance from hard disks? Try entering "standby" if you're running Windows, that usually shuts down the drives. Alternatively, you can unplug the drives and power up I would agree with this.

This is all very intriguing. I disregarded the bulk editions after learning they were inferior to the full versions, but maybe the bulk edition is good enough, or in other words, maybe an inferior Seasonic is still superior to most other PSUs... This my thinking as well, provided the price differen...
