Re: New SPCR design & management

Damn, that's disappointing. Can't say that I'm surprised, though.

RIP SPCR - 2002-2016. It was a great website.

Re: My version of TH's 0dB gaming PC - viable option?

Reviews have shown that a single passiv 7750 will nearly Cook itself without proper case ventilation. Two of them and still no case Fans doesn 't sound very realistic to survive some sustained gaming. But it's your money melting....

Re: My version of TH's 0dB gaming PC - viable option?

Btw, just to make it clear, when I ask if this is a viable option, all I'm really asking is whether you think the system I mentioned is gonna get too hot, problems that may arise, possible alternatives and improvements, etc., I'm not asking people to suggest a cheaper/better performing alternative w...

Re: My version of TH's 0dB gaming PC - viable option?

Depending on the games you play, and if any of the upcoming games you might play support Mantle, you might want to think about a Kaveri APU and a Dual Graphics'd R7-240/250. The Kaveri A8 can be dialed to 45/65WTDP and with Dual graphics you should be able to game 1080p between 30-60fps(without Man...

In order to focus on all passive components in a gaming system you will have to make compromises and stuff like performance and cost will suffer. You can have a pretty damn quiet system even with a f...

Back in March 2013 there was an article on Tom's Hardware where they built a 0dB gaming PC. Here's the link if you haven't read it already: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/silent-pc-gaming-performance,3435.html The build was really interesting, they selected all the right components and made a t...
