Rated 5 out of 5 by RaptorSST Small and effectively silent
This power supply is installed in a new Media Centre PC for my lounge, so I wanted something quiet.
This really is quiet, I've not heard it so far, and at the moment it's sat right next to me, not across the room. Evidently it will spin the cooling fan up if it is required.
I didn't need anything very powerful, it's running an i3 6100T on a Gigabyte H170N-WiFi, an SSD, a 4tb HDD and a dual DVB-T2 receiver so 300 watts is plenty.
Overall a nice piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bossco82 Excellent piece of kit
Once again an excellent piece of kit from Silverstone. Complete silent operation and with very good cable length. More than enough connectors for a HTCP build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nic15 silent operation
After building a Mini-ITX PC with one of these, I was impressed by its silence. The fan does not rotate (presumably unless needed - I have not seen or heard it doing so).
I bought another to silence an old mini-tower: Replaced the old hard drives with a 256gb SSD boot drive and 2tb 2.5" data drive; replaced the stock AMD socket AM3+ cooler with an old unused Akasa (socket 934 / AM2) cooler I had left over (the clips fits the same); and bingo! No more noise.
I fitted a new 6-core CPU while I was at it. For office and design work, i.e with no discrete graphics card, the 300w PSU seems perfectly adequate.

Silverstone SST-ST30SF 300Watt PSU
The first time I booted the pc after installing this PSU I thought it was broken as there was no noise.
Complete silence what more could you wish for
since purchase the fan has never run and nothing gets even slightly warm, the full ATX bracket is a bonus.
I could recommend this PSU to anyone who likes silence and not the roar of cooling fans

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeoffTracy Does the job!
I bought this as part of a HTPC I'm building. Does the job and makes less noise than the processor and case fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GingerMohawk Bought for a mini itx server
My last power supply (a pico psu) gave way recently and i wanted something with a bit more power and the same quite running that I was used to.
This psu is excellent, so far is has made 0 noise and as per my old pico psu all i hear is the Hard Drives spinning.
So far it's been on 24x7 for the past 2 weeks without a hitch and the main fan hasn't came on once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by broadsword excellent little psu
I purchased this for use with a new media centre and it is a very nice fit and silent.
The reason for leaving a review is to highlight the lack of length on the motherboard cable and the sata cable. If these were a little longer the review would be full 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crees Unusual to find a small PSU of this quality at this price
Using in my server now in a HTPC case-- very quiet, seems reliable so far, provides a larger power output than most others this size. Also comes with a plate to fit it in an ATX case if that's your desire.
