Re: Another Thorens Reborn: TD160

Oh. I didn't notice there was an audiophile section in SPCR.

Nice instructable, though.

Is there any possibility to RMA your unit and get a new one?

I'm really surprised that everybody talks so very good things of this cooler and in your review it seems to have been such a frustrating experience (noise-wise speaking)

I've been reading Corsair forums and it seems that the "noisy pump syndrome" is not that uncommon. It seems some pumps are defective.

Could it be possible your unit was defective too?

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Dose it make any sense to change a 90W power adapter or it won't make any different without upgrade the DC/DC power board inside? As MikeC said, the DC/DC adapter should provide more than 65W. I don't know why but I'm sure I read somewhere that the psu was speci...

In Spain it's just impossible to find any decent mItx mobo at a reasonable price, so I suppose in Argentina it would be even worse.

Hello, long time reader here, first time poster! :D I'd like to know if there is any way to mount a single 3,5" hard drive inside this case instead of the two standard 2,5" ones. :) Found this info elsewhere on this same board. Damn me. :lol: Well, now all that I need to do is deciding between the ...

Hmmm. That's very interesting, since I was also planning to buy the same harddisk. I'll spend a few euros more in a faster HD.

Thanks a lot for the advise!

I don't know if that J&W mobo can be tweaked, but most 780G boards do, so I suppose you could undervolt a little that little heater of yours and get a couple of degrees less. I don't know if you've already tryed it, but I've read that AMD "e" series can get a nice voltage reduction without stability...

Sorry for resurrecting this post, but I'm planning on building a low-cost HTPC based on intel's G41 mobo and I was pretty sure I was going to use an E5200, but someone in another thread (/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51004&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30) said something about higher temperature and powe...
