Re: Cooler Master Silencio 652S Tower Case

In the case of the Cosmos, you're right, it's not necessarily the dampening material that mutes the unpleasant internal noises -- the side panels alone are thick and heavy and might be fully responsible for the noise reduction. I'm not going to rip the stuff off to find out. There are 6 120mm fans m...

Re: Cooler Master Silencio 652S Tower Case

Thanks for the review; seems about on par with my expectations. I've seen it around the $80 mark on Newegg, for what it's worth, though I was tempted to spend more for it back when it was new. I can live with all the faults except the lack of space behind the right panel -- that's the biggest compla...

Re: Zotac ZBOX CI540 Nano Fanless Barebones Mini-PC

My sister's been running the i3 version (CI520) since June with Windows 8, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD. I think it runs disappointingly hot, but it's been holding up well so far. She uses it with dual monitors writing papers, watching hulu/netflix, web surfing, and skyping. It's plenty fast enough. It'...

Re: Rosewill Legacy U3 Aluminum MicroATX Tower

These are Jonsbo cases with a Roswell badge. They come in two other sizes as well. http://jonsbo.com/en/products_U_series.html They are also available under the Cooltek label, and probably others. In North America, Rosewill is the exclusive Jonsbo distributor, selling their products under its own b...

Re: SilverStone RVZ01: Mini Raven Case

Thanks, been looking forward to this review. Disappointing to see some marks against the fit and finish. And I wish it were even smaller. Valve's Steam Machine beta was considerably smaller -- though no external optical drive and no space for a 3.5" drive, which I don't need. http://www.ifixit.com/T...

Re: Seasonic G360W gold for $60 - Review & Giveaway!

A quiet, efficient, low-wattage PSU is the Holy Grail for minimalist quiet PC builders, but I remain unconvinced that this PSU would be better than its older brother, the X-400 FL, especially since some SPCR readers who have actually tried out the PSU have written here that the fan runs continuousl...

current seagate drives are way too loud and hot. try for a samsung probably the quietest current 3.5" drive you can get (but there's always the option of paying big bucks for a near-silent laptop hard drive) So that's the quietest 3.5" drive? Seems to be what I'm looking for, thanks. I don't really...

Very quiet drive reccomendation?

I was looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822148140 I have no idea what drives are quiet, though, and that is the most important aspect for me... My current 120gig WD is ridiculous. It rattles my desk and I can hear it from outside. I have replaced nearly all th...
