PSU fan?

I'm using the DS3R here - I'm about to get 2 fanmates for my 2 YL D12SL-12s. The S-FLEX SFF21E is dead silent.
I thought the general consensus was to stay away from PWM fans?

Interesting. I thought 45db was already very loud? It's apparently just "somewhat" audible.

Re: P182 - Stock Fans? And Fan Recomend for Ultra 120

I just ordered a P182 case to use with a new q6600, Ultra 120 extreme, a fanless video card, and a Corsair 450 PSU. No overclocking. I need to order a couple of fans for the Ultra 120. I am wondering whether I should also order case fans to replace the stock Antec fans. I'm leaning towards the 1200...

P35C:
4 DDR2 slots, 2 DDR3 slots. Otherwise, same as DS3R.

DS3R has raid...but what the "R" actually is I don't really know.
As for the 27 motherboards...Gigabyte also lists the different revisions of the same model.

I too like the second one better. No reason really, they're both really neat cable-wise. Do you think that suspension in the SOLO is reason enough to NOT buy the P182?

I'm recommending the regular ninja (Ninja Plus Rev. B). Since you aren't overclocking very much, you can run it fanless with decent airflow, or with a nexus 120mm fan. As for the 7900GS, reviews on newegg are not of the same caliber as on spcr. Basically, any video cards with those mini fans are too...

I'm thinking you shouldn't to preserve quietness.
You can go ahead and mod it for a 120mm fan, but just don't cut a hole in the front of the SOLO :wink:

Looks like your memory rebate is no longer available. If you are not going to OC the Corsair 6400 has a good rebate at NCIX and will save you a little. I think the Corsair HX520 is a better choice: quieter and modular, room for upgrades. I have one I'm thinking of selling and I also have some Scyth...

I don't really have solid arguments either way...

modular 520...
and people saying how the 450VX is the same as S12II and that they aren't too quiet...

So how much is my system using at load? (If you add another hard drive and up the CPU to E6750)
