I recently purchased a Samsung T260HD, and have noticed a faint humming/buzzing/whine whenever the brightness is set to 91 or less. 92 or higher and its silent. Its weird why it makes a noise at a certain brightness level. I've never had this with any of my previous LCD monitors. Setting the bright...

Fumble, Have you tried reducing the brightness within Windows GFX drivers? Catalyst Control Center on my ATI 4870 lets me reduce the brightness - if it wasn't for that i would be at a loss. It is fine now. the only issue is if I ever connect a non PC item via HDMI I won't have that control, but that...

Samsung SyncMaster 2494HS Pretty much silent as long as brightness above 88. This is a problem as its a VERY bright screen, so I adjusted brightness in software on my 4870 instead to about -65 (equivalent of 45 on screen). Now its OK. Below 88 the whine is terrible, no way - no way. Sounds worse th...

Well ... just got a replacement for my dead Phantom 350 .... and they replaced it with a brand new Phantom 500! (Antec netherlands>> UK) I am taking this as a strong indicator that the 350 line is discontinued due to a fault throughout the line. I would not recommend the 350 series to anyone myself....

PS. If you mod the PSU fan to be fixed at say 7v it may make it very quiet, though i am unlikely going to test this. Then it may be more of a useful case. Woudnt want to run a P4 in it tho.

After further useage of this case I can say the following: Not quiet by silent pc enthusiast standards, though quiet compared to the majority of desktops. Hard drive seek noise appears to be amplified. (maybe i am used to a decoupled HDD?) Older CDROm drives which are longer than ususal are a tight ...

I just recieved one of these today in the UK. (£45 incl. VAT) Not had chance to test properly yet but the 92mm fan is very quiet - from what i can hear over the server room here at work. Once I get it home I will be able to do more testing. The build and design are excellent - have had previous expe...

FSP Aurora ((FSP300-60PN(PF)B)

FSP Aurora ((FSP300-60PN(PF)B) I can buy this for about £60 inc. delivery here in the UK. It is basically a FSP300-60PN(PF) with a blue LED fan and a fan speed control Pot on the back. However I can't find any reviews of it. The specs state that it is under 20db under nominal load. Presumably this i...

You can also just buy an FSP 400-60PFN and mod the fan on it for the same results (as silenx) LOL. Then come in here and try and sell them. Joke!.

Well I mounted the Panaflo L1A at 12v outside the PSu just now and ... still to noisy (wind flow).
I have left it outside and run it at 7v ... now my system is finally "quiet" (till my psu overheats!!!)

SilenX or Modded Enermax w. Panaflo

Okay at the moment I have a 2 year or so old Enermax 350w PSU, currently modded with a 12v L1A. The 92mm hole is taped up. I have been warned about running at 7v, at which voltage it is quiet but has a lot of hot exhaust. To me the heatsinks looked fairly large on my Enernmax. What I am just trying ...

I think my PSU is an EG365P-VE. I got it about 2 years ago ... this was before all the other silent PSUs came out - would this be a "non-OEM" model?
