Yeah...I wish I had the skill/resources for that too! Unfortunately, faux is much easier/cheaper...and my only real option. Looks good considering ;)

I wanted to create a place where you can easily reference and compare various case sizes. So, I've created this simple spreadsheet with tabs for various case sizes from smallest to largest.

Re: Gaming in Tight Spaces…..mini-ITX (not quiet)

LOL....Yeah, this was not a "quiet build" by any means. IMO the first revision definitely had potential with the Samuel 17. With proper fan selection, it could have been quite. But again, this was not build for the purpose of silent computing. Sorry to detract from the excellent quiet content here :P

Re: Gaming in Tight Spaces - MAX11L (featuring Gigbayte and

Concerning the noise....I'm using this in noisy locations and gaming with headphones....so noise wasn't much of a concern. Having said that, it's fairly quiet at idle....but while loaded (CPU or GPU) it is pretty noisy....the San Ace & the GPU (pump and PSU fan are inaudible over the other two ;)).

So is the GT AP-15 still the bad-ass fan for rads if you want decent CFM, but not too noisy? Any thoughts/advice massively appreciated! :lol: I think they are a very good choice for low noise and do very well with pressure....but their CFM rating is a little less competative. In other words, the Sl...
