Sealing Top Exhaust P183?

Hello all,

Seems most people are sealing the top exhaust vent in the P183. I was just wondering what the general 'best' method if there even is one to seal it.

If I just removed the fan and didn't seal the exhaust vent, how 'bad' would this be?

Thanks.

Best option for quiet "high" end video card?

Hello all, I'm leaning towards a Sapphire Toxic 4890 w/ Vapor-X or MSI GTX Superpipe 285 I game quite a bit at 1920x1200 so I'd like to have something fairly powerful. I know silence is probably impossible, but from my research those seem to the two 'quietest'. Was just wondering if I missed anythin...

Thanks all,

Anyone know if

-Scythe Ninja 2
-Scythe Mugen 2

Generally have any clearance problems? I have an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe board.

According to the NH-U12P manf. website, it should fit my MB fine, so I'm leaning towards that.

Which AMD Heatsinks have correct fan orientation?

I just bought an AMD BE 955 and Asus motherboard and was just wondering if people knew which of the latest heatsinks fit with the fans facing the correct direction ( West-East, versus North-South ).

It uses DDR3, which runs cooler than normal DDR1/2 and doesn't require any ramsinks. If you look at pictures, the X800 HSF doesn't cover the ram chips, while the 9800XT does. Also, looking at tests, stock for stock, the X800 seems to draw only a little more power. I'm not sure if that translates dir...

Any undervoltable 865/875 P4 Motherboards? For P4-M

Nice system, I also think very lowly of the MCW5002 block. It's mounting mechanism is just okay on the P4 and terrible on Athlons... A WB that screwed through the MB would be much better. A RBX or WW would be great for a Athlon, plus it has good mounting mechanism. How hard was it to drill those hol...
