As the title says, can anyone recommend the best TFX form factor power supply? Trying to build the smallest and quietest possible, yet relatively powerful mini itx pc for htpc and light server use with an A10 6800k/7850k APU. Most TFX power supplies I can see in stores here seem to be total trash.

Was thinking of a case like this http://www.chieftec.eu/en/chassis/itx-tower/fi-01b-u3.html , but its psu makes me worry.

SeaSonic SS-300TFX, $40 and a quality name. There's also a 350w version. They use dual 12v rails, but each one can deliver up to 216w, so there's no balancing issues.
