Re: Thermalright HR-22 CPU Heatsink

Interesting stuff, as always. For the next time, I really hope you can try to use these kinds of heatsinks in a totally passive build. This would enlighten us about the current state of passive build temperatures. (Yes you did a fanless heatsink test in this review, but I saw that you had left the s...

Re: HFX Classic build

Interesting stuff you guys are posting about gpu power consumption fluctuating. I would really like to know more about this, but I'm having a hard time finding good info. Lets take the gtx 270 as an example. The gtx 270 has a TDP of 170W. In idle it uses like 93W. Under heavy usage, it has shown to ...

Re: HFX Classic build

to highfi, I've been playing around with the idea of sticking a gpu to the heatsink as well, ill try to do that with my next build. However, the gtx has a tdp of 170W, while, say, a ivy brdige 3750k just has the cpu 'just' 77W. So, while the latter can be apropriately cooled with a good conenction b...

Hey Im seeing your build right now. One thing though.

How exactly did you get a 'stacked' BorgFX CPU cooler like that,... the heatsink comes with 'only' four heatpipes, no? You seem to have eight!

Re: HD6850 Passive by PowerColor!!!!!!

Crossfire 5770's with Accelero S1's is practical to do, as long as you've got some modest airflow blowing across the cards (eg. 500RPM fans). For my old setup (photo below), with the 3x Scythe Slipstream fans all at a silent 400RPM, temps in games got up to the 90c mark, and Furmark took the GPUs a...

If you use the 6850 with the Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H in the second pcie slot, you should be aware of the fact that the second slot only supports 8x. Only the first runs at 16x. That is why I am look...

Well, De verwachte verkoopprijs is navenant: met 80 euro wordt de Project Silent M twee tientjes duurder dan de Sileo. This means that the expected selling price will be 80 euro's, 20 euro more expensive then the sileo. This could be expected because of it having matured into this case and looking m...

Re: Seasonic X-760 or CP-850?

Mind you, the recent puget i7 2600k sandy bridge system is built with a p183 case plus antec cp-850 psu. It gets like 14 db or something. Near dead-silent. I don't know whether the seasonic x series will be able to battle with that silence. Maybe when the fan isnt engaged,... however how on earth sh...

Re: which psu for antec p183[?]

I reckon that If you'd want a silent psu, seasonic x fanless series are more silent than the cp850, right? But the question is,... when does the fan kick in, how much noise does it make, and more importantly for this thread, how the hell do you build it inside of a antec 183. I can't wrap my head ar...

Hey guys, whats up. Cooler master is making new cases for the silent market. Won't this be a good competitor for that antec case used by puget? I mean, 850 watts is also overkill, right? Isn't it a smart thing to get 140 mm fans? Why are the front holes so big, why the extra hole in the top? You kno...
