What I don't get is why you closed all holes with duct-tape, reversed your intake fan into an exhaust fan, and made a downwards airflow at the CPU. What's your intake, and why is the warm air going downwards? Imo you're doing it wrong. A reversed ATX should not be half-reversed. I think you can make...

That cosmos is HUGE. But i didnt expect it is can be quiet. Because of the huge space. I thougt it would be harder to cool because there is much space between components. But that looks pretty darn silent. It's pretty silent. In fact, as an out-of-the-box case it's way more silent than many others....

Ok, cool. I'm ordering one now, fitting it more to the back isn't going to be much of a problem for me ;)

Looks nice!

Can the door still close with the fancontroller in it? I'm still looking for a good controller, but thought the door didn't close with this one (just like nearly all others).

If it doesn't I might as well take my door off and fix some damping :)

I really don't see the use of this. It's not a case, and as a benching table or test system there are way better options. This construction-thingy is not useful for placing hardware, and is way too small to be able to test all kinds of systems with all kinds of cooling. Quick testers in stores test ...

It's certainly not in the cooler, as this lady is passive :P

From what I heard it is a common issue in some chipsets, so I bet it has to do with the standard transistors that need to be fit to such a card.

Yea. When playing some adventure, strategy or whatever game set to such qualities that it doesn't get over 40fps or something everything is fine, but when playing some shooters on low detail online.. You really notice it.

Sparkle 9600GT (passive) buzzes at full load

At full load, the Sparkle 9600GT (Cool-pipe version) slightly buzzes/beeps, in proportion to the fps the card gives. Just so you guys know when buying this passive card: It is not silent while gaming. In case that's something you want, the Sparkle 9600GT is NOT your way to go, HD3850's neither I hea...

The website says it has three 12v+ rails, so yes, it does make a difference. Which pin is connected to which rail however, I did not find. Check the manual for that, it may be in there.

A tip for anyone who buys this: do replace the fans, I changed them for Nexus ones, one with screwmounts, and three new-style fans with rubber mounts, and this definitely makes a difference with the just loud CoolerMaster fans (even at 5v). About the fancontroller issue, there is a few millimeters o...

Intel E6320 @ 2,8GHz >> 1,2675v in the BIOS, about 1,216v CPUz readout on full stress.

10h Orthos prio 9 stable.

Oh, and it's under an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro. With all my fans at 5v and the Freezer slow it's about 32 degrees idle and 39 stressed, this is when my room temp is 19 degrees (celcuis).

Anyway, are you able to just pull the LED on your controller off? And can't you just pull off your knobs and look for shorter replacement from electrical stores or make something yourself? Well, that's the problem... The LEDs are soldered to the board, and it's not clear whether they are in a row o...

Legal issues will be useless, to start off with. Actually, is the power socket you are using for the computer grounded? By the way, don't forget that if Antec helps you out with RMA they're being nice to you, as they don't have to. Usually, RMA goes via the reseller ;) Oh, and SPCR really isn't goin...

I see you have missed the point. This controller is completely software independent once configured. You can shut down the application and throw away the USB cable, as you will never have to go in there again - unless the configuration needs adjustment. I bought this exactly for the reason of me wa...

That's one nice fancontroller, yea. However, I'll HAVE to control this by some program, which isn't really what I want. I do want to be able to control the fans without having to depend on some OS or driver, as I also want to control fans when I'm busy in the BIOS, some bootdisk, or while gaming. Be...

I don't see why it would affect the secondary fan. I believe that one only kicks in when the temperature gets too hot. And I'm going to assume that the always-on just means it supplies a steady 5V to the fan. Thought that too, just want to be ffs before I fry my PSU 8) Is this the one that's powere...

Hi there.. I've got a PSU with two 80mm fans, the Antec SP-500 (It came with my TX1050B and I still use it). There's one fan on the inside of the case, a thin one, which is always on. Then there's a regular-sided 80mm in the back which will start running whenever it's needed (only seen that like twi...

Looking for a fancontroller w/o 'tall' buttons

OK, been lurking here for a while now, and got myself quite a silent system alltogether. Here are current full specs, and as you can see I've got a Vantec NXP-201 fancontroller with four Nexus 120mm's on it (well, already have one, the others will be installed tomorrow). As you may know, the vantec ...
