Thank you ronrem and jackylman once again. I certainly have fallen behind the times, 200mm is crazy! SPCR has reviewed the Barracuda 7200.10 series and found it's fairly noisy compared to the competition (and it runs hot too :(). In fact, I have a feeling they will easily be the noisiest things in y...

Thank you sincerely jackylman, and especially for answering each of my questions :) -If you're on a tight budget, I would get the S12-380 instead. It will have more than enough power for your system. Forgot to mention the S12-430 is already purchased (taking it from my previous rig!) -What C2D are y...

Advice for a golden oldie

Hey there fine people of spcr, I'm a friend from back in the old days of spcr when it was hard to get those silent bits and bobs (looking back at my thread archive is quite cute!) I used to be very up to date on the preferred silencer's hardware but other commitments since got in the way :cry: I've ...

I'm probably way behind, but over on Thermalright's site they list the XP-120 under both Intel and AMD :D

hitman47 -- It's for P4, not K8, so yes, it could be an issue for many boards with taller northbridge coolers, if the northbridge is closer to the CPU.-Ed Sorry, I meant that if (and hopefully when) the Thermalright XP-120 supports the K8, we would see fewer or perhaps no such northbridge problems....

Now I only see certain problems with NB's being passively cooled (like my Intel D875PBZ) ... HUGE ... but, I think, "bigger + quieter" is the way forward. Seems neat :). About the northbridge problem - it just occured to me that the Athlon64 nForce3 boards would not suffer from this problem, as the...

I understand it must be too early to call (as the Pentium-M architecture will no doubt be beefed up for the desktop) but how does the Pentium-M compare to the Athlon64, temperature and performance wise?

Edwardng, just read your review of the Acoustifans, and you say: I tried putting a 92mm Acoustifan on the SP-94 but its proximity to the PSU fan caused a wind turbulence sound, so I decided to skip on the fan for the CPU HS Would this not happen to me too? Perhaps an 80mm fan would not have this tur...

Thanks mate that's exactly what I was after... If you can find a better 92mm fan (AcoustiProducts' AcoustiFan AF92CT is my recommendation), then definitely go with 92mm. The AcoustiFans were the exact fans I was looking at after their favourable reviews (well the AF92CT or AF80CT)! I'm not sure whic...

I wanted to ask for some advice on the ThermalRight coolers such as the SLK-9 xx and the SP-9 x . I see that these coolers are generally longer then they are wider, such as length: 90mm, width: 59mm etc. Thus, I'm not sure whether to purchase a 92mm or 80mm fan for the Thermalright cooler I am looki...

Yea I reckon the only reason people would choose a Sonata over this is
-Front Headphone and Mic jacks
-blue light
-glossy paint job
-size restrictions
