Bigwater 760is enough to cool GTX 480 from evga?

Evga will have ones with water blocks, think this enough to cool just one. Looking to see if this is possible without too much noise. Using an antec p183 case.

Also it says the radiator is alluminum would that mean I would have to replace it if the evga waterblocks are copper?

Thanks

QuietPC cupio ultra questions

http://www.quietpcusa.com/Gigabyte-Cupio-6140-Ultra-Quiet-Special-Edition-Computer-Case-P632C80.aspx Anyone using this case. Currently I'm using antec p183. I was wondering how quiet 6140 is? I don't mind some noise not looking for 100% quiet. If I was to put radeon 5790 how loud would it be at full...

thanks for the info

Well on newgg they only had the 180B as black so thought it was only black then when I looked up 180B on pricewatch all I saw was black.

But like you said if 180 and 180B are exactly the same then i'll get 180 since 180B seems to only be available in black.

Antec p180b is the only one with the fixes?

From what I read around here you have to get the black P180B to get the fixes to the P180 silver. Is there a reason 180B dont come in silver?

I rather not get black incase I scratch it. I have several scratches on my silver lian-li case but I cant see them unless I really look for them.

thanks

Well I'm taking the drive back on monday. I put my old IBM deskstar back in. To me the desktstar seems to be a little bit snappier by a tad over the barracuda V. I'll try out the 7K250 series when it comes out. Hopefully hypermicro takes store credit or refunds on a drive that was used for a few day...

I have one IBM Deskstar cant hear seek noise on those at all, I have the barracuda 120GB replace my boot drive IBM deskstar. Now I hear seek noise. I may have ...

Will fan isolators fit thru the fan holes on the liani li

I noticed the fan holes on my liani li case are smaller than what I have seen on other cases, will the fan isolators fit thru these holes, and will they actually make the fans more quiet vs using the rubber push pins instead?

Is it possible to buy a different tray for lianli case?

I'd like to get a tray that has to cutouts for two outtake fans. This way I can use two 1900rpm silencer fans vs the one Antec 80mm smartfan which spins up to 2900rpms on a hot day under full load. it hits 34.5dba. A silencer fan from pc powerand cooling only reades 19rpm with 20dba, much more quiet...

Well I found out why the drive spinning sound when idle is loud. Some how when they are mounted in the square illuminum thing, this inhances the sound of the drives just spinning. Even if the illuminum thing is not mounted to anything, its like a hard drive sound enhancer. very bad. I know this beca...
