True, although most of them assume pre-existing case airflow. The Seasonic X-series are probably the best balance between the two.

Not very special any more. With SSD's, passive heatsinks for both cpu's and video cards, building a completely silent pc is pretty easy these days provided there's some airflow

I was initially running my Sega Genesis mod system passively cooled with no addition changes other then changing out the thermal paste with some IC7 so i agree this is not as much of a challenge then say in the P4 days
