Re: Silent Lian Li PC-A04

My A04 will be delivered tomorrow.
I suppose that you keep your computer on your desk, since you want to silence the front of the case. But mine will be on the floor besides me. I will try to disconnect the top fan. The air forced in from the front would flow out from the top and rear.

Re: USB 3 ports dangling out at front of Solo

Hi Kendalf, I've just read your post above, and also your thread "Lian Li PC-A04, Quiet low voltage build for transcoding", which will be useful for me soon. After considering the Define Mini, I had opted for the Solo 2 a few days ago, but I ordered the A04 on an impulse. After the build, I'll post ...

Re: Home PC advice

Falkon, it’s a good thing you pointed that out to me. The clerk at the store didn’t notice the discrepancy and put the NH-U12P SE2 on my quotation. The one I want is the NH-C12P SE14, the downblowing one, which is also $70 here. The second link on my last post should be: http://www.canadacomputers.c...

Boost, the HR-02 sells for can$80 at the local store, and the NH-U12P SE14 is can$70: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_129&item_id=032884 http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_129&item_id=031388 In any case, I like the Noctua.

Re: Home PC advice

Thank you everyone, your help is much appreciated. Even though there seems to be more clearance for the ram, the height of the Macho is worrisome. I wasn’t aware of the NH-U12P SE14: that’s the one I’ll get. Thanks for that. I prefer the X-560 to the X-400. The fan should stay off most of the time, ...

Re: Home PC advice

Thank you for your quick reply. In view of your comments, I am satisfied with my choices for the PS, the HDD and the low profile Vengeance ram. The Ninja 3 weighs over a kg. I know that many people use heavy heatsinks, but I wouldn’t be at ease with that. I am now considering the Noctua NH-U12P SE2....

Re: USB 3 ports dangling out at front of Solo

The general opinion appears to be that the Solo isn't the best choice, and you have convinced me. I've reread the reviews about the Define R3, and I like it. I like even more the Define Mini, which will soon be available. The smell problem, which made me disregard the series at first, seems correcte...

Re: USB 3 ports dangling out at front of Solo

The Silverstone FP36 doesn't connect to the internal header, as you pointed out. I prefer the other kit. About your link to Anandtech, I must be missing something. It's a motherboard review.

USB 3 ports dangling out at front of Solo

Planning a silent computer One problem with the Solo is that it doesn't have a front usb3 port. The usb3 kit below has a connection to the internal header. http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3536 Is it possible to have the ports dangling out at (or near) the front of the Solo ? I...

Re: Silent mini-ITX project

Hi, I found out that the Z68 chipset is due very soon, on May 11 probably. I need to change my plans. But first, I want to say I am glad about the clarifications you both gave me. It's a relief to know that the 2600K will do, and that the performance variation between motherboards is so small. I'll ...
