I've had the NeoHE 430 since about Jan 07. I've had lots of problems with the combination of the Asus P5N-E SLI mobo and the neo. I had to rma my mobo and finally got a stable setup. I recently tried to add another 2 gig memory (two sticks) in addition to the 2x512 that I had already (both crucial B...

I have the stock Intel fan and I don't find it to be loud at all. I do have a case that is designed to dampen sound though. But if your going to get the fan with the CPU anyway why not just try it and then decide if you need a quieter fan.

There was a problem with some mobo's (especially ASUS) but that should be fixed now. Just make sure that where ever you buy the PSU from, turns there stock regularly. I would suggest getting it direct from Antec if you can. Just avoid buying from someplace where it may have been sitting on there she...

That's the way my P5N E-SLI came.

As for New Egg, when they packed it, they put the MOBO box on the bottom of the shipping box and just put peanuts on top. If the box got dropped all the shock would go straight to the MOBO.

That's terrible.

I'd look into that before buying more than 3gig ram. from my P5N E-SLI manual "if you install Windows XP-32... less than 3gig is recomended" "System may detect less than 8gb system mem w...

I just got new ram for system and since installing it I have had no problems at all.

So put me down for 'NeoHE works with no problems'.

P.S. I bought it about 1.5 month ago from Antec B-stock site.

Check out Antec's B-stock site. They have that same case for $23.xx. I bought my P150 from B-stock and I can't find a single blemish on it.

Just to check, my friend had the same problem with his pc (shutting off after 3 seconds) and found the problem was he didn't hook up the Aux 12v cable to the mother board.

Hey, I posted on this thread before, but I stopped after I continued to have problems after swapping the NeoHE 430w for a Smartpower 350w.

I have the E6600 on an Asus P5N E-SLI with 1gig ram and BFG 7800 GT OC.

I haven't over/under clocked or done anything other than set the memory timings. I have rarely seen my temp above 40ºC

In the P150 the loudest thing in the machine is the optical drive (which blew up last night :roll: ).

I think most of the ideas in the original post are off the mark. I can't imagine mandating power or time usage will work.

Why waste your time with asking Antec or other makers to provide black interiors? Why not just take the case down to you local auto body shop and get a custom paint job?
