Re: Good motherboard/software for semi-passive cooling?

Okay great, that's good to know. I'll experiment with my brothers computer (which I gave to him) to see if I can make such a setup work there, before building a brand new machine for myself.

Re: Coffee Lake silent build

This is my first post here - I'm very glad this forum is still active, as I want to soon build a new, quiet desktop (most important thing being that it is near silent on idle). Does the HDD's make any audible noise at all? I'm confused on this issue; some people seems to claim that one should avoid ...
