Is it noisy as in fan noise, or noisy as in coil whine?

I'm pretty happy with my Asus A8N-SLI Premium. The T-Force boards (like the Asus A8N-VM CSM) also tyically are passively cooled.

most motherboards have big problems with dual core and a fresh boot. Yeah I'm gambling that my A8N-SLI Premium will have a newer bios. Not sure what I'll do otherwise. I know someone with a venice single core chip, hopefully that'll work if the dual core won't. order it as part of a combo from Mona...

You won't miss out on anything if you're only doing 2D. There are faster cards that are passively cooled without having to swap out the stock cooler. For example, Gigabyte makes a passively cooled 6600. I'd avoid a workstation class card unless you're going to be doing heavy 3D rendering in 3dsmax o...

I'm about to pull the trigger on this sucker for real now. I like the ports at the top of the 530, since I keep my case on the floor but I really like the looks of the C5 so I think I'm gonna stick with that.

The nexus breeze is tempting, but expensive and I don't like the idea of all the air only being exhausted through the power supply.

Right now I'm leaning towards a Centurion 5 and throwing an Asus A8N-SLI premium in there.

Getting a new case, any non-Antec reccommendations?

My current case is a Superflower SF-461. http://www.super-flower.com.tw/english/sf-561bl.htm My sister wants me to build her a machine so I thought I'd giver her this case and use it as an excuse to buy a new one. I thought I'd consult the experts here before I bought. I thought about an Antec P180 ...
