Re: Microsoft Surface Pro

My friend got a Surface Pro 2 and I couldn't tell it even had a fan at idle, we were chatting though. I ran IntelBurnTest on it and it became barely audible to my ears. To me it's quiet. I don't know how the original Pro compares.

Re: Want to help Corsair build the [quietest] case ever?

I'd love to see Corsair make a gem of a case. This is what I'd like to see: Midtower, basically as small as you can get it while fitting in with the functionality goals and allowing popular tall tower heatsinks. Sidenote: I'd also like to see Corsair's take on a competitive tall tower cooler, if the...

Re: GTX 760 review compilation

I'll chime in and repeat that the MSI custom cooled card seems to be much more quiet than the rest. I know someone who is in the market for an Nvidia card. I was going to recommend the EVGA custom but I told him to get the MSI.

Re: SilverStone Argon AR02 CPU Cooler

Why do you review these coolers but don't bother with the most popular one in the budget segment, the Coolermaster 212 Evo? I personally want to see how things stack up, but again the Evo is conspicuously absent.

Re: NoFan CR-95C Copper Fanless CPU Cooler

This cooler is the best passive heatsink SilentPCReview has ever seen and they don't give it top honors?

:P

Re: SilverStone Argon AR01 & AR03 CPU Coolers

Given its popularity and price/performance sweet spot, where's the 212 Evo review? It'd be nice to see it stacked up to the rest, the AR01 especially. Seems conspicuously absent.

Re: Major upgrade, need heatsink advice.

If you wouldn't mind changing boards to an Asrock (that supports 775 coolers) you can get a 775 adapter for your current heatsink: http://www.frozencpu.com/cpu-tri-15.html I know you wanted Asus but ASrock have caught up in quality and they're some of the most popular boards. Double check that you a...

Re: BitFenix Ghost

Anandtech review: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6442/bitfenix-ghost-case-review-begging-for-the-premium-treatment I took a close look into one at Microcenter yesterday and the above review summed it up pretty well: it feels cheap. It's also stupid to put fan mounts in the top of a quiet-oriented cas...

Re: Seasonic G360W gold for $60 - Review & Giveaway!

New account here but I've been reading this site since Swiftech air coolers and then Zalman flower coolers were all the rage. I've also had my eye on the quality PSU market since the only top players were PC Power and Cooling, Antec, and Enermax (what happened to them!?). I'd like to think this site...
