SO if you say 450W is enough then i suppose I'm fine. Although on another forum somebody said 600-650W minimum, so I'm not sure what to thi...

Want to buy this motherboard but compatible with PSU?

I want to buy this mobo: http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=P6N_SLI_Platinum&class=mb but on the pic i can see that for the power you need 24 pins and for the CPU like 8 but my Antec 450W only has 20 and 4. Is it still possible with adapters or something or i need a new PSU!!! Thanx...

I was running my Zalman at 40% too and it is a big improvemnt over full speed - I finally got around to fan swapping to a Nexus 92mm - running at 100% it cools better and is much quieter. The Zalman fan is j...

much thanx for all the tips, I'm most likely going to remove the tri cool in the back and put the akasa amber 120mm thats in the middle in the back. The foam idea seems good. And for the hdd does it really make a difference if its suspended i mean in the sonata 2 they are already on those rubber thi...
