My Silent Titan (Antec P100)

It's incredible to see the how far technology has come in terms of silence and computing. I'm amazed how a lot of stuff I used to customize before are no longer needed. Here is my rig On 24h a day, 365 days a year : 1x BeQuiet Darkpower Pro 11 Platinum 550W 1x Antec P100 2x DemciFilter Custom Filter...

Re: 4 pin fan headers on motherboard ?

thanks for your reply.

It seems that gigabyte is now on par with the rest thanks to a bios fan control.

I was just looking at the issue from a technical standpoint. Is it the same ?

Re: Small Silent Case Comparison

it is COMPLETELY silent, I can't hear a thing, it's inside my cabinet.

Re: WD Red or Seagate NAS

I bought a WD Red 4tb and a Seagate NAS HDD 4tb.

I'm not gonna give you any measures as I'm too lazy...

BUT

WD Red gets hotter and noisier than the seagate nas hdd.

So returned the red and bought 6 seagate nad hdd 4tb.

Update 2 : I changed my 6x WD Red's 3 TB with 6x Seagate NAS HDD 4TB. Vibration was reduced, noise also. The trick is not to tighten the screwdriver on the rubber grommets. Really really keep it loose, barely in. The vibration is not so different from the elastic way. I went to dmcifilter and made a...

Waiting for the RED 4tb to kick in so that it can be compared to the seagate NAS 4tb.

Is it my eyes or is the rear fan a 140mm so its making to bottom fan look smaller that 120mm ? Also does the temperature of the GPU stop you from doing a custom fan profile for it ? how hot does it get ?

Re: The Silent Monster

What fan speeds are you running? If they're PWM I'm guessing they're thermally controlled so what RPM do you get under load and idle? Any further work you might do with fans? The fan speeds go from 400 (Dead silent) to 700 (Dead Silent). It's waiting for the 6 3Tb Red WD drives and it will be done....

Sorry about that... Of course there is a SSD. Intel 520 240 gigs.

Forgot to put it in because i already have it.

So, i'm left with the i7 i5 mess.

i7 S or K or T or i5 ?

hyperthreading or not ?

Seasonic Fanless vs KingWin / SuperFlower Fanless

Both of these units are good and efficent. Both are around 500w and both are fanless.

my questions goes to the buzzing electrical noise sound. Which one is better ?

I heard that the seasonic are plagged by this buzzing sound. Whether the kingwin / SuperFlower model is not.
