Absolutely shocking it doesn't come with white cables. Also, £95 for a 550w Gold PSU is far too much. This is 750W money.

I was going to say the same, anyone who buys a white PSU will more than likely want white cables. So would have to purchase separately to this...

Seconded, I suppose the 'gimmick' they would say justifies the cost is the silent part but for most it is pointless as having a silent PSU won't make any difference if your CPU, GPU and case fans are spinning, you need to build the whole PC from the ground up for silence.

More sensible are PSUs that don't start the fans until they reach certain loads or temps and I don't think they cost extra either, that way you can enjoy a quiet (near silent depending on other fans) PC doing light everyday office type work and the fans can kick in when needed e.g. gaming...

I agree...
... For this money is aim for platinum... Will save a bit over the years in electricity and make it far cheaper. I can recommend the project P7 650w Platinum, which is generally £80-90 - albeit with a 7 year warranty (but seven years is a fair time to flog a PC before an upgrade, I tend to follow 5-7 year upgrade cycle myself. I believe they do a 500 or 550w version which is cheaper too, but unsure if it review s as good. My 650w is rock solid, and silent (Ryzen 2700 OC, 5700XT, 2 ssds, WiFi card, RGB fans and loads of usb devices, etc, fan never spins even full load on CPU and gpu , though admittedly the other fans do so it's a bit of a gimmick)

No white cables sorta defeats the point also. Obv the psu I mention is black, but then so are the cables here, and a lot of cases have a shroud over the psu nowadays anyway. But you get RGB if bothered about that, which you don't get here.

Sorry this doesn’t make any sense. Yes people build a silent or quiet pc from the ground up. That’s exactly what I did and used a hybrid seasonic psu like this one. Although I went for a higher rated one than i needed so the fans didn’t kick in until it reached a greater load (Mine kick in at 50%).

This is exactly the psu you are describing as being more sensible. If you are going to talk the wrong facts then it could give people the wrong idea and put someone off a fantastic psu.

choosing the right components is essential in a quiet pc but this with one or two good case fans, a hybrid gpu (I use a strix), and a silent cpu cooler are worth the investment. Just don’t ruin it by putting it all in any old case.

You have disagreed with me to say essentially the same thing I know my facts fine, I have been building and repairing PCs since the 90s. The point I was trying to make is that less knowledgeable users suffering with a noisy PC might see the word "silent" and assume fitting one of these alone will produce a silent PC, which it absolutely won't unless the other components are matched as you said. Putting one of these in a noisy PC is a waste of money unless you are prepared to swap out the other noisy parts. In many cases the standard PSUs with 120mm fans (pretty much all modern ones) aren't even very noisy to begin with unless it is an older type with the smaller 80mm fans or running near it's max load.

Also, you don't specifically need a silent PSU for the fans to only spin up above a certain threshold, I believe a lot of modern PSUs offer this ability, just checked and yes Corsair AX and RM models for example, so you don't have to specifically go to a dedicated silent model for this useful feature. I'd argue for the vast majority of users after quiet systems, models like the Corsair AX and RM with a zero RPM mode are more useful and potentially better value as you aren't paying specifically for silence as a feature on the box, but you still get it provided your PC stays under the required load, which it probably will in low utilisation and you can always buy a bit higher wattage if you want to ensure it will...
