Why are you bothered about the minium power consumption, a PC power supply will power the Q60 no problem at all.
Yes, but I was just wondering out loud about using a very small fan-less PSU, but they tend to be max rated 2A. I did see one in the USA with apparently 5A. But I think PSUs have come a long way since the 90s and a modern ATX PSU is probably very quiet in comparison.

Could do. I'll probably just go for a modern ATX PSU, easier than having to connect to and measure all the drives (while they are working etc). That'll be fine, think I even have one that I pulled out of my sister-in-law's old PC.
