Re: Fractal Design Define R3 ATX Tower

Great review. It is good to know the fans are pretty solid out of the box. I am also very excited for the Define Mini review.

Wow I am liking this model a lot. I'm evaluating some replacements for my current HP EX485, which is noisy and out of warranty. My gripes with this model are: - VGA only. Would be nice if they threw in a couple of displayports. - AMD: I have not been keeping up with AMD's latest, but Intel seems to ...

I have an HTPC which I NEVER use. Would you be interested in buying a used Origen AE H6? I have the original box and everything. The dimensions fit your specifications.

Replacement 80mm fan for Stock AMD cooler?

Hi all,

I have the newer stock AMD cooler with the heatpipes design. It comes with a very noisy Delta fan that spins at 5200rpm, but is very noisy (48.8 dba at load and 42 dba at idle!). Any recommendations for a quieter fan? I would like a nice balance between quiet and performance.

Thanks for the input guys. I failed to mention that my board is also refurbed, which could def. be part of the problem. These problems are relatively infrequent and I plan to upgrade to socket 939 and a pci express board when they come out. The important thing to know was whether my PSU was adequate...

Is my PSU adequate? (Antec TruePower 380)

Hi everyone, I am having spontaneous rebooting problems with my computer. Sometimes my USB hub goes out completely, meaning that none of the devices plugged into it work. When I take out the cable and plug it back in, the computer resets. Then in other instances, when I use my front USB ports to plu...

Alternatively, move the rear fan (not that quiet) to the front, and use a 38mm for exhaust.
Hmm are you sure the 38mm will fit in the rear? It might seem obvious, but I just want to make sure since the offical specs say that both rear and front fans are 120x35mm.

120mm front fan for antec sonata

Several questions 1) What will the 120mm front fan in the sonata do? Will it improve my airflow or perhaps cool down my hd? 2) If so, then which quiet fan do you recommend? So far all i've seen is the Vantec Stealth fan which is 120x25. I know everyone recommends the panoflo, but I only see the 120x...
