You probably already know this, but anyway.

There are power supplies called picoPSU which have no fans and are, as
far as I understand, more efficient. See [1] for example. Additionally
you need an AC/DC adapter which gets, I think, pretty hot but it is
placed outside of the case. Also it is a little more expensive than a
“normal” PSU but you probably also save some money because of the better
efficiency.


Regards,

Paul
