Re: Fractal Design Core 3000

So, Fractal Design 140mm silent series R2 fans have no clicking noise?
In that case, it just might be the right solution to get core 3000 with 2x140mm fans+1x120mm fan.

Any info on Corsair stock fans (cases 200R, N500) - clicking noise?

Front intake fan should have curved / bended intake tunnel curved to bottom. 45 degrees
Top exhaust fan should also have curved exhaust tunnel curved to REAR side 45/90 degrees

Re: Video card for Adobe CS5 - silence please

As i write this I'm in the middle of searching for a decent motherboard. As of now I've put Sabertooth X58 and ASUS P6X58D-E on the list. Pretty similar boards though. I know this post is placed in video cards, so I might need to take my questions elsewhere. But I assume you did some thinking befor...

Re: Video card for Adobe CS5 - silence please

I've had the same issue with choosing a graphic card, since i'm dealing with graphic design and Adobe CS5 tools (PS ext., Illustrator). I've narrowed my choice to Sapphire HD 6850 and MSI GTX 460. I was concerned about 6850 because of Adobe CS5 features and nVidia's official support for Adobe (CUDA,...

Re: Dilema Sapphire HD 6850 vs. MSI GTX 460 Hawk

Yes, these links show Sapphire being quite silent than MSI 460 Hawk. Sapphire 6850 idle: 10,5 dB Sapphire 6850 load: 22,8 dB MSI 460 Hawk idle: 19,8 dB MSI 460 Hawk load: 24,8 dB So far, Sapphire has multiple advantages: silence, price and lower power consumption. There's a temperature issue, but i ...
