Building a WHS box

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I'm building a Windows Home Server box and I am looking for a good PSU.

In my last two gaming rigs I have used 620HX PSUs and I am really satisfied so I guess I'll be buying a Corsair PSU for the WHS box.

 

The key word here is - besides reliability, of course - that the PSU needs to be as silent as possible as the box will probably be in the living room and on 24/7.

 

I'm planning on a ASUS mobo with integrated graphics so I won't have to hook a graphics card, a core 2 duo CPU, 1 Gig Corsair RAM and 2 Seagate 500 GB harddisks. That's it.

 

What PSU should I get? I was thinking of the 450VX. Will the 450W be okay? I read in a post - http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64387 - something about hard drives vibrating with this PSU?

 

Many thanks for your help

Martin
