    Default PSU for mini-itx case?

    Hi everyone!
    I want to build a mini-itx pc and I was thinking about the fractal design nano S as a case.
    From the spec the max length for the PSU is 160cm.
    Can yousuggest me the best psu that can fit in it? I want it to be at least gold, better if platinum/titanium if the price is not too high. I want it to be as silent as possible too.
    I was thinking about those 550W:
    - Seasonic prime ultra platinum -> 115
    - be quiet straight power 11 -> 100
    - EVGA Supernova G3 ->100
    - Corsair RM550x ->85

    I put in bold my main choises.

    As I said, the noise is the most important thing. I will use it with a ryzen 1700 and a gtx 970. Later this year I plan to upgrade to AMD navi. Still since I will have only 1 GPU I think 550W will be enough.
    The price is not really a problem since I plan to keep it for nearly 10 years like my corsair HX750 that I have now.

    Bitfenix Formula.
    Or maybe Cooler Master V-Series

    You want to look for something with 140mm length if possible.

    The new Silverstone GS Series seems decent as well, though the fan is an issue...

    How does the CM V-series compare to Seasonic prime Platinum?
    Also, if I went for a mini-itx I would need an SFX PSU. Other than the Corsair SF600, there is some other good SFX PSU?

    I just went the mini-ITX route and I ended up using an SFX-L power supply. There are some good options in the SFX-L realm.

    Not sure what's the difference between SFX and SFX-L.
    BTW I'm looking for a normal SFX, so I was thinking about the corsair SF600 platinum.

    SFX is 125 x 100 x 63.5mm.

    SFX-L is 125 x 130 x 63.5mm.

    They both fit into the same SFX "cut out", but some cases may not have the depth available to install the larger SFX-L.
