A7110B. The case is serious and sexy and very expensive too! It got much better when I added the wheels, the top, and side panel.

Thanx Chris, glad you like it.

I think a semi passive PSU is a more "secure" solution for warm Greece :)

One thing to keep an eye on is the temperature of the motherboard components with little to no airflow. The CPU will just throttle if it overheats but you could cook the motherboard over time without realising as not every part of the motherboard is monitored. :( I have only seen the cpu throttling...

@ walle : Glad to be here at last :) feels like home already. @ WR304 : Your observations are really good. However I must add the following. Since the pc is used for music production, currently there is no DAW software (I use Cubase) that uses more than 30% actual CPU when it reaches their DAW peak ...

How did you fit the Thermalright IFX-10 rear CPU cooler onto the Socket 1366 motherboard? Did you mod the bracket? I'm trying to work out how to re-use the IFX-10 when my new Socket 1366 motherboard arrives. :) :D :D :D I thought someone would ask. Asus P6T has BOTH 1366 and 775 mounting holes. I s...

Does the memory need all those cooling fins or is it just for looks?
What's the heatsink on the bottom-right of the motherboard for?
1. A humble 9500
2. Both
3. Cooling the Southbridge.

stack effect, excellent. I utilize this too, but never called it that. Rather comically, if the world stuck to atx standard, that is exactly the effect it uses. I see an opening half way up, that may be a negative effect. Very nice system however. :) Hi there, In theory, stack effect applies to lar...

it does look very nice , it does seem kind of a waste to have a exensive cpu like that to run it that slow, having the e8*00 would of been better suited, still, nice job, and it looks excellent Thnx :) Indeed, the e8*00 series would be better. I don't have an issue though in real work situations :)...

Mostly looks. It's also easier to arrange them in the back of the motherboard tray, thus gaining some airflow upwards.

It is the wrong cpu for this job, and the question temperatures versus speed versus adding a fan remains. Well, at least you admit it. Running this cpu so underclocked and fanless, is like pulling a trailer with a porsche. Sure it has the muscle to move it, but your holding it back so much. If you ...

I wonder, though - wouldn't you get better convection if you could rotate the motherboard 90 degrees, with the cabling coming out on top? Indeed the heat sources are piling up this way, and as a result, the higher the warmer. This has two results. One, the cpu is hotter than it should. Two the warm...

PSU fan only starts at 65 degrees Celsius, which is seldom to never.

well, it is pretty steady at -25% but anything under that is steady as a rock. to be honest, in real work situations, it is flawless. I tested several applications, the cpu was at very low load, and I tried some heavy load gaming as well, the temps and usage was higher, but never peaked. I even trie...

Specs are heavy which was a problem.

P6T, i7 920, etc

Temps are at load but underclocked. PSU fan only starts at 65 degrees Celsius, which is seldom to never.

Project ZdB (Zero deciBel)

Hi all, it's my first post here, but I've been reading this forum like crazy for years. I finally completed my totally silent pc. Also, I'm displaying it on a PC show in Athens.
