Re: Total silence based on Nofan cooler

Sofar running the i7-4771 without fans is working well but beware of its 4600 integrated graphics. There is no option to get sound on the HDMI, wish I had known this prior to building the current setup. Hopefully Intel and/or Microsoft are able to fix this bug. If it does not get fixed I can still g...

Not everyone here is a fan of the Nofan as it is very big, heavy and expensive but if it works for you that is good. Any significant buzzes or whines from compon...

Any cases with just 2x 5.25" and more than 6x 3.5"

I am trying to find a case with just two 5.25" and more than six 3.5" drives. It should not have a front door that covers the 5.25"'s. (Nero ejecting with the door closed syndrom :lol: ) Ideal would be an Antec Solo type case where one can cool the drives with small 80mm fans and a big 120mm fan at ...
