Re: New cooling by submergence strategy

I looked into a similar fluid from 3m about 1 year ago and saw a youtube video with a test with consumer board and it worked very well. They used ducttape to get it airtight so it probably leaked a bit but not noticably. The liquid turned to gas at a bit above 40 degrees celcius so the contactsurfac...

Re: if i want to buy the new pc than which config is best..?

in my opinion this is a bit a vague question as we don't know if you mean (most) eficient, fast(est) or something else with latest cpu/memory.
and would a apu be worth considering or do you need/have a seperate gpu

Re: Crazy? or not...

i'm a bit short in time so i will say it a bit simple, but basicly is you want to stop sound from going trough a panel/wall, you want it as have but as flexibel as posible. concrete works because of its weight, brick is a bit worse because of less weight with the same stiffness. 2 brick walls with a...

Re: Passive house ventilation with computer fans

Your reasons for not wanting centralised ventilation apear to be: -noise, this is usualy caused by: -airducts that are to small, if they are designed better that would be no problem. -the centralised ventilation system is not in an unused room(the best place usualy is in an attic or something) or it...

Re: swapping psufan huntkey jumper 300g

Reading your post I get the feeling that no PSU fan is ever going to be quiet enough for you. Perhaps you should be looking at a fanless solution; maybe a PicoPSU+brick could handle your power requirements. well i can't hear the scythe gt 800rpm at max or the fractal design fans at 5 volt so as i'm...

swapping psufan huntkey jumper 300g

The fan of my psu, a huntkey jumper 300g (i believe its called90r in other regions), makes noticably more noise then other fans in my case, a fractal design mini, and its a bit to noisy for my taste. I'm using the bottem psu intake of the case, i actualy tried turning it around so it takes in air fr...

Re: Fractal R3 - how to remove fan doors?

But then you would have both the case door and fan door open. i believe when you remove the fan door but close the case front door only a small amount would leak through the front case door. And if you keep the front casedoor open there would be no benefit of the sound absorbtion and isolation of th...

Re: Fractal R3 - how to remove fan doors?

I'm wondering does the airflow actualy go trough the fan doors? i have a fractal design mini and there the air bypasses the fandoors but comes from the sides behind the fan doors.
