hey mouses are supposed to make click-click ;) I have Logitech trackman wheel, the wheel looks identical to yours. I took it apart to clean, couldn't figure out how the spring goes back. The spring on one side makes all the click-click as you turn the wheel, the other one helps it bob up & down,,, ...

I set up an IP35pro w/TRUE in a a Solo, and it was a very tight fit, we had to pull out on the horizontal bar underneath the PSU in order to clear the heatsink while positioning the motherboard in the case. It definitely fits, but it is quite snug between the HS and PSU area, and getting the fan cl...

The thing is not all scroll wheels are the same, so you might improvise, depending on the mouse model. Ok, that i probably true. I have only done this on a couple of logitechs and they all where the same. But i would guess that the difference cant be too big. If anyone has pictures of other mouses ...

Looks really nice :) but your picture needs some rotating!

2x1 TB is heavy :D

It looks like the Ninja is blocking the other two RAM-sockets, couldnt this be a future problem?

Silencing your scroll mouse.

So I have been doing this modifications too all my mouses for at couple of years now. Not because the silencing effect but because the feel the mouse gets :) That it gets more silent is just a bonus! The whole thing is VERY easy and takes about 5 minutes, tops :) The basics is open the mouse, remove...

Looks good, that Skythe Kama Bay maybe isnt a bad idea! But I cant realy see how removing the psu would lower your temps, its fan shuld work as a "hot air remover" from inside the case. But if it works it works! :D If you dont want the fan spin faster att full load just wire it thru ordinary molexes...

I would do the change. Cant belive that it would be a problem.
Or if you dont want to spend money on a new fan, just rewire the old one to 5 or 7v from a molex instead of the internal connection. (then the fan wont go up and down in speed)

F for Fragging Ok :) I will not start experimenting with fanspeeds/removing fans until I get the Nocuta back but thanks for the tip. The DVD+/-r was a gift and it works fine. So it will not be replaced as long as it still works. That would be a waste of good money. Will check my case tomorrow for p...

[Which] cpu-cooler for passive vga?

Hey! So, whats the nosiest component of my computer? The grapic card! Thats why i desided to try to make my "own" passive cooler. I got a whole bunch of old cpu-coolers to use :) I have selected these as the ones i think are the best at cooling fanless. http://climbing.huligan.se/wp-content/uploads/...
