Help, lower P180 drive cage stuck!

:( So spent all of last evening doing the tedious task of swapping out my old Socket-A setup for my new 3000+ Venice/MSI K8N Neo2/XP90 combo. I also took out the drive cage to replace my 160G Barracuda that developed bad sectors (I hope my 5 year warranty covers this) with my new Barracuda 200G. I'm...

I just made the move from a sonata to a P180 and it was well worth it. I have clocked my cpu 300mhz higher, and with everything on low, I get the same temps whilst playing WoW as I did when I was just idling in my sonata at 300mhz slower, AND this is now virtually inaudible!! If I turn all the fans ...

I have a Globe 120mm as rear fan, panaflo 92mm on my SP97, tricool jobby on the top blow-hole but set to low and a panaflo 120x38mm in the psu chamber. These are hooked up to my fan controller, Globe, Panaflo, and the tricool/38m panaflo are li...

i have just realised, the only real prob i can see with the 3000B is that, as it has a cover for the DVD drives, you cant isolate the PSU and have a front intake duct:(:(, unless you keep the cover open when the PC is on, but then that kinda defeats the point of the cover! I have a fresh air duct u...

My 92mm panaflo is much smoother at lower voltages than the silenx and seems to push more air the nexus 120mm will be as quiet at possible at 12V (only £1...

Luxotop?

Search brought up nothing about these fans I found on http://www.whispertec.com/Fan120.html

Look rather optimistic for double bearing fans, but only if *dreams on*

Anyone had any experiences?

What would you estimate?

Lets say you had a fan controller that did 12v-7v. What effect would you say having a fan at 7v would be? I doubt its as easy as saying half the cfm and dba, effectively doubling the quietness but halfing the cooling? To elaborate, say I was giving fans percentage figures for cooling and quietness a...

I used to overclock my mobile 2500+ to 2.42Ghz, but this was at 1.725Vcore, 2.8Vdimm and 1.7V on the chipset

This generated too much heat to operate silently, idling at 50ºC

Now running at 2.2Ghz 1.6Vcore, 2.6Vdimm and 1.6V on chipset, alot quieter and idling 42ºC

61cfm @ 25dba and they have NMB bearings, not the fluid bearings

at £14.99 they are a bit steep, but they are 25mm thick, so would fit in front mount of BQE
