Re: 2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR (EDIT: now 12 years)

And the answer everyone has been waiting for with bated breath:

80mm Panaflo fans made in Japan (instead of China) were called "Japanaflos." :)

Re: Quiet Liquid Cooled Gaming PC Build Guide

I've very excited by SPCR's foray into liquid cooling. It's an area I've avoided due to alleged noise concerns and a very real aversion to SLI (costs, microstuttering). There hasn't been noise testing for liquid cooling done anywhere to SPCR standards; there's no way I'm dropping the kinda coin liqu...

Re: Scythe Kotetsu CPU Cooler: A Compact King

Good news, Seems the Kotetsu is reaching the US market. Bad news, Seems the retailer is trying to take the advantage of being the only reseller atm and jacking up the price to absurd levels.

Re: Scythe Kotetsu CPU Cooler: A Compact King

Although I don't use the LGA 2011 platform with RAM on both sides of the CPU, I was considering splurging on a Noctua NH-U14S; to the extent that they help me find a balance between CPU temps and other temps, I value CPU heatsinks that minimize obstruction of front-to-back airflow (in the future, I'...

Re: 2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR (EDIT: now 12 years)

What was a product for "over-clockers" called the "Super Tornado" doing on SPCR? Which company made this ironically-marketed contraption? Absolutely no searching online! I guess that's too easy for anyone who has read just some of the SPCR PSU reviews: it's Seasonic. All of my questions should be e...

Re: 2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR (EDIT: now 12 years)

The Zalman NB47 northbridge heatsink? Yes sir, it's the Zalman ZM-NB47J northbridge heatsink! It replaced the noisy HSF on my Abit NF7-S Rev.2 northbridge. In the summer of 2004, it was part of my first concerted effort to reduce the noise of my PC. DSCN4495a.jpg What was a product for "over-clocke...

Re: 2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR (EDIT: now 12 years)

Nidec vs non-Nidec motor based HDDs and noise levels. That's a blast from the past. Right you are. The Samsung SpinPoint P80 series used Nidec and JVC motors, the former believed to produce less high-frequency noise and a slightly lower dBA differential between idle and seek. I still have my SP1213...

Re: 2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR (EDIT: now 12 years)

What has SPCR done for me over the years?

Perhaps you should view an item from this silencer's ragbag gragbag, circa 2005. Can you guess what it is?

No googling! Filters and cropping have been applied for a bit o' sport:
