Re: Is Passive CPU Cooling Best for Silent Computing?

I don't agree it has to negate the point. My experience is that case fans causes less resonance than CPU fans.

Nostalgic reveries aside, am I going blind or was the concept of passive cooling left out of this review entirely? It could just be that the Ninja no longer rolls that way, but in its glory days, passive performance was part of what made it so special, so I think it should be mentioned in this revi...

Like I said, the problem is that this "fanless" PSU has a fan -- a built in fan. See -- http://www.hardware.no/artikler/northq_500w_pacific_ii_fanless/48865 -- the title of the article says it all: "Fanless" Power Supply - with fan The article says that the fan kicked in after about 30 minutes of 3...

thanks yall.. my room temp is around 23-24C so it's a little on the hotter side i guess. I guess I won't be too worried about these temps as long as they don't go over 70 :D 70 is certainly not a problem. You can safely turn down the speed of your fans a lot. When does it start throttling? Is it 90...

Ninja 2 ? HR-01 Plus ? It's like one "review" i saw on someones blog where they compared a 7200.10 320GB drive with WD10FAEX and the difference between them was credited to difference between SATA2 and SATA3. There are passive heatsinks, so test against them, not against coolers which weren't even ...

Oh yeah, and there's so many other passive heatsinks they could have tested against instead. :wink:

Noctua DH-14

Hopefully Noctua will send their latest heatsink to Mike for testing very soon.

I just got mine yesterday and it ran passively reaching only 75 degrees during prime95 testing! (i920, asus p6t, default settings)

Very nice project. Is the airflow decent even at those RPM from the front case fan? I ask this because the airflow produced by the fan must pierce the case door and filters. Thanks you very much. Depends what you mean by decent. None of the cores went over 79 degrees during stress test, the MB temp...
