My Antec Smart Power 450W from the bundled Antec Sonata 2 went dead after 11 months. Luckily for the 3 years warranty, I managed to replace it with another new one. I'm just concern what would happen after another year of usuage.

Just got my order in today, I've ordered the standard mutemat in order to save shipping costs, planning to add in some barrier with it. The package came in a medium sized box, pretty heavy duty and I was surprised to find the mutemat is covered with a layer of bubble wrap...not bad for shipping some...

Looks really good on paper and has an enormous potential too. At least there'll be another option to choose from other than water, phase change etc Still it is just another method of transferring heat away from a heat source, like heatpipes. Therefore cooling rate and noise would depend on the heat ...

There have been many comments (in other threads) by some of the most respected members of the SPCR community to the general effect of "I care about silence; I don't care about looks".

The problem you've encountered is that the fan speeds up even after you turn the knob all the way down. It has been the case for the aerogate 2 and i couldn't stand it, I just sold it away.

I too have one of these fans, quite readily available here...but when running, there's a noticeable bearing noise which goes "sssshh" Still prefer the panaflo though, less bearing noise.

1) If you really want to decouple your drives, the only way to go about is to drill out the drive cage rivets and make your own suspension system. I've actually ordered the v1100 but i'm now in aussie, will have to wait till i get home in 4 weeks time to play with the casing. 2) I'm pretty sure the ...
