I have a WD 500GB in the bottom chamber with a HX-520 but no fan. 42-45, which seems reasonable enough, so I probably don't need an extra fan (although later on I can add a fanmated YL if need be) EDIT; wow, this has gone off-topic. bottom line: if you take out the middle cage, you should be able to...

Generally Dell PCs are quieter than a poorly planned system and will be near SPCR quality at idle but the fan control will ramp up all the fans VERY QUICKLY. They're pretty quiet at idle, yes. Once, I turned it on with the door opened, it gave me a chassis intrusion warning, and immediately ramped ...

I have a Q6600 - S-FLEX SFF21E is my fan. D12SL-12s actually aren't really quiet enough for me. If you add a zalman fanmate, it should be okay.

oscar3d, got some interesting results :P seems like when i stop the middle fan, cpu temps go down about ~3 degrees while GPU temp goes up 3-5 degrees.

Was it to ensure air flow directly over the Gigabyte gfx...

New Corsair CMPSU-550VX... not by Seasonic!

Recently released, available at NCIX.com.
As proven on the forums, these are not in fact built by Seasonic, but by CWT. Not sure what this means for silent enthusiasts.

Having the fans at 12v just means that they're running at their normal speed. The Tricool is on 'low', so I'd assume that isn't 12V. The YL actually is slower on the 4-pin SYS_FAN2 than on the 3-pin PWR_FAN header. I'd assume that isn't 12V either. TAT only stresses the first two cores - I think it...

miahallen, if you do 3D work, a quad would be amazing. Coming from a P4 1.8GHz, I have to say I am very impressed with this quad core. I have confidence it would OC much further - I just haven't tried yet :lol: falcon26 - a compliment from another cabling master as yourself is very encouraging :)

You might want to reconsider the P35C-DS3R...maybe get the non-C P35-DS3R. There seems to be a great deal of problems with the board (including boot up cycle issues). Honestly, by the time DDR3 becomes mainstream and you want to get some, you'll probably be getting a new [silent] computer with SSDs ...
