Thanks for the input guys. I went with the Scythe slipstream 800rpm since the vendor I was buying some other stuff from doesn't sell Nexus fans. Maybe I'll try the Nexus another day when the chance comes up. Right now ordering just that one fan doesn't seem worth it for the shipping costs.

This is a common question we hear asked frequently...... I don't have a particular CFM I require. Obviously I understand that any fan will generate airflow noise, even if the fan bearing is dead silent. What I'm really looking for is the current fan with the lowest bearing noise for a given CFM. It...

The Current Top Fan?

What's the absolute quietest 120mm fan (undervolted or not) available that money can buy right now? I know the Nexus 120mm has been a favorite for a while, but I'm not sure how some of the newer Noctua or Scythe slipstream compare to it. I've been using Yate loon D12-SL12 fans for a while now, and t...

If I remember correctly, the Arctic Cooling Accelero S2 is supposedly compatible with the Radeon 9XXX series. I'd look into that if you want an aftermarket cooler.

2.5" drive in a NSK2480/Fusion case

I'm thinking of building a very quiet HTPC down the road, but I'm not sure what to get for the system drive. Does anyone have experience with stuffing a 2.5" drive into an Antec NSK2480 or Fusion? The special mounting scheme looks like it'll make it difficult. I was thinking of throwing it into a dr...

Yeah I was talking about the Radeon 9600 PRO. The accelero S2 would definitely be a great choice, but I got this thing cheap and if it does the job then why spend more money. Autoboy, how hot does the heatsink get?

VGA Silencer passive on 9600 PRO

Well I just purchased a first generation vga silencer second-hand, only to find out that the stupid fan has the infamous rattle that has plagued the silencer series of coolers. Looking at the actual heatsink, I noticed that it's quite big in size. Since the 9600 PRO doesn't produce all that much hea...

Accelero S2 for X850XT PE

I've got an X850XT PE, and I'm looking to silencing this monster. Even when using ATI tool to lower the fan speed, it's got the most annoying high-pitched whine. I'm thinking the Accelero S2 will solve all my problems, with its cooling ability, silence, and low price. But one thing I'm concerned is ...
