Interesting, but how much do we trust their claims?

Thanks, Bluefront, for the info. The theory it good, and I'll bet the practice produces reasonable results. However, I'm skeptical of unproven claims by a company claiming to be smart about tires when their animation in the video has the tires rotating *backwards*. When they show the yellow contact ...

Agreed, this is an excellently written article. In particular, -- Concise and to the point -- Appropriate pictures -- Great selection of links to products and spcr articles and threads. This alone will make this article a very handy reference in the future, since readers won't have to scour the arch...

Look  at this code without lots of spaces.

What about a set of baffles on the top of your case to direct the sound backwards without restricting airflow significantly? I had a nice ASCII picture the first time I tried to reply, but the $#*@ forum software erased all the "extra" spaces. Imagine taking a few squares of cardboard as wide as you...

Unrelated to the failure, but AFAIK, packing peanuts dissolve in water. Those made of cornstarch do; those made of polystyrene (styrofoam) do not. BTW, the cornstarch ones usually look like cheese puffs, and you can eat them. I recommend setting one on your tongue and seeing if it dissolves before ...

Power consumption numbers at Tom's Hardware w/gamer vid card

Tom's Hardware did a story on a new video card w/GDDR3 memory, but the interesting part to the SPCR community is the power consumption readings: The worst case is the Radeon 9800XT/nVidia 5950 Ultra in the P4 3.2 machine at full 3D gaming: 2...

Really? Does MikeC still do this? Where is the info about it? I'd love to get a Seasonic modded by The Man himself.

i tilted it, but i think the problem is that the bubbles are getting sucked back into the pump anyway. I have a similar setup to yours, with the same radiator in the same orientation (but mine is outside the case with the 120mm blowing case air through it). I agree with the other posters that a lik...
