Thanks for the link. But at current currency conversion rates it would be £35 not including delivery or VAT so it will be very expensive (not that the cooler isn't already expensive now).

For a UK comparison should I be looking at the >230 VAC (we use 240 here I think?) :oops: I have the 625W version (running at 471 RPM at the moment). A bit OTT but I wanted something quiet now as I was building a new system (and there wasn't any reviews of the 4xx/5xx versions!). I can't give you an...

It doesn't mention a HDMI adaptor but the Powercolor website does.

My Powercolor 3650 arrived today from komplett.co.uk. No HDMI adaptor despite the Powercolor website saying the opposite :x

I didn't have a need (using VGA) at the moment but I wanted the option in case I ever upgrade to a full 1080p TV.

Now I just wish you had the 425W/525W versions to test! (impatient as I am building a new system now). It would be nice to know if they are as quiet as the 625W version (particularly running a low watt system like a 8400 + 3650 - my planned system).

Also cables long enough to run behind a P182?

It would seem Club3D 3650 isn't available so I might not have much choice anyway!! The 3650 supports PowerPlay so I guess the PowerColor must support clocking down?

Club3D and Powercolor both make passive 3650s - both dual slot I think. HIS and ASUS also do but I think there most expensive (GDDR3).

It appears that you can only use VGA+DVI/HDMI and not DVI+DVI or DVI+HDMI as the digital connection serves both. I suppose I could connect my LCD up via DVI and then my Plasma TV by VGA (which is the configuration I use at the moment). But I wanted to use DVI for my LCD and HDMI for the TV. I'm gues...

I could buy the 1200 RPM version and 5v it through a fan controller. Should match the same CFM/DB as the 800 I believe (but I wanted as quiet a system as possible - maybe they are when 5v - I don't know). I still want a range of airflows. They are going in a P182 that arrived yesterday! So I would h...

Thank you for the link. $7.99 x 3 = $23.97 delivery = $28.00 (USPS Priority) or $39.00 (USPS Express) Total = £25.90 or £31.39 Import duty = ?? I don't know the time delay regarding delivery or import tax. It may still work out cheaper than 3 x Noctua fans depending on if I get hit with import tax.

Both are passive solutions. I was wondering if anyone had purchase one and if they included the HDMI adaptors in the box? Or which is "better".

The 800RPM Slipstream is probably enough, yes. It pushes more air at a given RPM because of the 9 blades.

I prefer the Scythe Slipstream 800RPM fans -- they are the quietest fans I know of (except for the 500RPM).
Will they push enough air? Are those 12v speeds? I plan on connecting the fans to a controller.

Thx!

How does a NF-P12 compare to the noise levels of a NF-S12 800 or 1200? I'm planning on getting three in a P182 (CPU, Exhaust, Intake) running on a low setting.

I might use 2 if necessary (either use passive cooling or negate a intake fan).
