Re: I give you the ANTEC SOLO II

I am a long time solo owner, and I am disappointed in the SOLO II. Nuances: PSU Support Bar - Most annoything thing ever with the original. Why is it here still? So its removable ... why even have it in the first place if people are just going to remove it time and time again? PSU Top Mount - As a c...

My room is pretty hot nowadays with the late summer heat and humidity, but I'm pretty sure my unit is nowhere as loud as what SPCR got with theirs.

But people are not recommending buying a PSU wich runs on 100% load all the time. You'd be surprised. The article that I see getting quoted the most is the DailyTech pre-launch 8800GTX article where they run 3DMark on a GTX and say, "oh look, it only pulls 375W from the wall." (paraphrasing here.) ...

for some reason i used to believe the fan speed was directly related to wattage load, until my friend spelled out the obvious for me /stupid :p yes, my room can get pretty warm, and running everything on low voltage doesnt really help the case temperature. but because of my measured load now, im thi...

i think the easiest method would be to use a thermal/infrared imager to timelapse the flow of heat in the case?

Greetings, Shucks. So now the cables come out from the same side of the case for the whole family? Wished they kept it An aside: this is a feature of the Antec Solo that I really like! You can flip the PSU around the way that it fits best... :o Turn the PSU upside down? That surely won't leave suff...

I made another thread before I saw this one ... maybe I should've posted here.

but i'm assuming the general consensus now is that the PSU really is the last noisy component in computers.

does replacing the adda fans in most of these PSUs quiet them down?

PSU is the last noisy component ... thoughts?

I'm running a Silverstone ST50EF on the following: e6300, P5N-E SLI (650i), 8800GTS 640mb, 2x 320gb sata, 1x dvd-rw, packed into an Antec Solo. There's 2 120mm in there (a tricool on low, sflex on 5v), and a nexus 92mm. I didn't think this setup to be much of a power drawer, and its definitely quiet...

Passive Ultra 120

So i just recently picked up an Ultra 120; considering how performance is just about onpar with the Ninja, it came down to a matter of style, and the 120 wins hands down. I proceeded to try to fit the thing into my Antec Solo (P150) ... and that proved to be quite the adventure. As some of you might...
