Internal, by far
I would honestly do without cramped PSU with ultra-loud 40mm fan (and you will need a fan for a server-style PSU since there would be no air circulation otherwise).
I mean, obviously you don't want what goes inside a high-end server, since they have very small PSUs relative to their power rating and noise is not a concern so they have the loudest fans ever.
That's an interesting point I never even considered. I guess it wouldn't ever effect me, but it's something I could see being pretty important to some people.
