I'm just wondering if anyone has tried out any of the platinum certified SQ power supplies in their Supermicro case? If so, how quiet is "super quiet?" I'm about to update my home server and I'm struggling with going Norco/Habey or Supermicro. Right now I'm struggling with the tradeoff between the potential quality issues of Norco/Habey (especially the well documented backplane issues) vs the loudness of a Supermicro. If these new SQ power supplies bring the noise of a Supermicro down close to that of a Norco/Habey (with a quiet desktop psu, aftermarket fans, etc), then I'll spend the extra dollars to get the higher quality case. Thanks in advance for any insight.
