This card is on my list. I think it's the most powerful passively cooled (out of the box) card on the market. I was a bit frustrated that this card is listing at near $200 on NewEgg but the price on some 9800's has dropped to near $230. Isn't the sapphire 9700 pro UE (for sure) or 9800XT UE (maybe)...

i don't think there are any good quiet solutions that don't need more space. And i don't think if you're looking for quiet you should be using a shuttle.

Do i need ram sinks for 9800Xt?

I am about to build a comp for my friend and he wanted a radeon 9800Xt. And what i was thinking was use a zalman zm80-c w/ the optional fan. Will the ram be ok? Will i need to get some ramsinks or will the airflow from the fan be enough?

Anyone ever go to a diff forum and feel superior?

I feel like this all the time. Whenever i try to suggest something new and better thats more quiet, they flame me saying that i'm lying. Then after a few weeks, the whole forum has adopted the ideas i spread. BTW...all of my silencing ideas are from SPCR, which i always attribute.

i hope that review is gonna be here soon cuz i really really want to get a nice lan case! even if it means giving up a little in the area of quietness *cringe*

EDIT: at least i'm sure this will be better than one of those monstrously loud sff shuttles and biostars.

I'm not sure how good of a job I'd do at this, and how ugly the case would be afterwards... so I'm not sure. I think the fan isn't too expensive anyways. True, it does take a bit of work to make a clean cut. You have to pull all the electronics out of the case, cut carefully, file, and vacuum thoro...

what really makes me angry is that intel is trying to change the form factors on us. If i go out and buy some ATX case now, then how long will it be useful? How long will the BTX form factor be until it goes mainstream? AAHHHHHH i hate intel :x

No the speaker psu does not have a three-prong plug. they are plugged into my powerstrip which does have a grounding prong.

Rook: My speakers make this noise even without any input.

funny thing....monsoon is not in the computer speaker business anymore so they stopped offering support. My other speakers that were not flat panel, did not exhibit this kind of behavior. Could it be that the flat panel speakers are amplifying the sound for some very odd reason? Edit: i stress that ...

I thought it was the 60Hz tone as well. I'm going to buy a "power filter"(don't know the term) but it should take away any improperly grounded problems right?...i'm not sure. Maybe my house just isn't properly grounded. I'm in the US so if that helps.

the buzzing sound happens when the speakers are plugged in to the power outlet. It continues even when i disconnect them from any source for sound. The buzzing only comes from the flat panel speakers and not the center. The center is a traditional cube driver.

backround noise from speakers

I recently bought some monsoon mh-505 surround sound speakers. Right when i powered them up, i realized they have loud buzzing. I don't know if this is normal or because of some kind of interference. Anyone know if this is normal?
