So what exactly does the [RPM]-[BLACK]-[RED] do in comparison to the normal [RPM]-[RED]-[BLACK]? Does it run the fan at 5v? Reason I'm asking is because a fan in my Cisco Catalyst 2950 is going downhill and it uses the odd configuration that the liberty uses. I was going to get a faster SilenX fan (...

Cool Barton 2500+ plus with these fans, good idea?

Hi all, I have a VMWare Server running with a Barton 2500+ @ 2000+ (motherboard limitations, will experiment with lowering voltage) that is currently using a really annoying 80mm CPU, quiet 120mm PSU and Global Win "Ceramic" 120mm fan for exhaust. I would have liked to get another "Ceramic" 80mm for...

I'm fairly excited about my new Athlon 64 coming for this reason. But I bought a Winchester core so the Cool'n'Quiet speed is 1000Mhz with less electrical leakage then the old Clawhammer cores.

It looks like a nice unit but according to a http://www.3dvelocity.com/reviews/seasonics12/s12-4.htm article it's 12v rail is really wimpy for it's wattage. That makes it a bit questionable for nForce users since both our GPU and CPU run off of the 12v rail.

A *digital* multimeter will measure your +5 and +12. I dont think there is a way to measure your +3.3 or -12 rails. That's alright. The -12v rail means nothing to me and if I wanted to measure the 3.3v I would probably have to insert the taps into the 20-pin ATX connector and jump the PSU. But that...

I would like to cut the large grills out of the two 80mm sockets on the back of case because I think they are causing lots of air noise for my Panaflo L1as. However I would like to hole to be a clean cut and (possible) be able to attach a grill like http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=11-9...

How to calculate wattage for processor?

I have a 2500+ (1833Mhz) running with a 1.3v core stably. Now I was wondering how I could calculate the wattage as I am trying to figure out total system power consumption. If it helps it runs at about 38c full load with a 92mm Panaflo L1a at about 7v.

Thank you!
