Hi,

I actually just bought one (QO229V). The matte screen ist just nice. Now I just have to install Linux and see how it works on the Ul30A and what will happen to battery life.

Great review, but :D now I need to know where I can buy the Thinkpad with the Asus screen in a non-glossy version and the better battery life. Seriously, I am looking for a decent small laptop for a few months now and was eyeing both the Asus UL30A (and UL20A) and the Thinkpad Edge for a while now. ...

Thanks again Sandman, I will try soon. Actually I am more worrying about GPU temps now. Using Atitool I easily get to about 95 degrees centigrade after 15 minutes of artifact scanning. I think I don't like this. Perhaps someone can comment on that. Problem is I am not able to fit a fan directly in f...

Hi Sandman, Thbaks for answering. I will probably get a Asus Xonar DX soon, but I think I have not made my point clear enough. It is not the problem of the Bios, it is the fact that the names for the assigned pins for HD-Audio on the mainboard and from the case differ somewhat. All around I have don...

My Thermalright Bolt Thru Kit has not arrived yet so I decided to gice it a try with the pushpins. A...

Hi, as this is a fan made by a polish company IIRC, you won't get it anywhere outside Europe (most likely outside Poland) yes it seems. Googling for Fander 92 gave me a single hit (a polish webshop). I don't think it will help you, but here is the Link: http://www.komputronik.pl/Wentylatory_/_moddin...

@nick705 Thanks for the tip... I ordered the Coolermaster Module instead of the Kama Bay... seems nice enough to me. @SilentBen Of course I've read your thread, i will contact you if I need hints. Thanks for the offer. After all I've now ordered 3 x 800 rmp, 1 x 500 rpm scthye... headroom is always ...

Well, I have ordered most of the parts now. I will still need to get the Slipstreams and decouplers and stuff, but actually I am searching for some german website except keep-silent.de to order both the kama bay, the slipstreams and the nexus real silent 92 mm. Actually keep-silent.de seems to be th...

So any opinions on the PSU? The eXtreme Power Calculatorgave about 300 Watts at 90% load (adding an dvdrw and sound card I think). So of course I'll probably will get this only while gaming... will the Modu 425 be silent enough?

Well, thanks a lot for answers so far... As I have been reading some articles about the P182 again I am thinking about the whole neagtive pressure thing and inbalanced airflow stuff. Perhaps I could use a Scythe Kama Bay in the upper 5.25" compartments with a 500 rpm Slipstream and replace the Slips...

Yes passively cooling is possible in that case. No problems. I am passively cooling same TDP X2 in P182 with single exhaust fan. Bolth thru kit is essential for regular ninja but not necessarily minja, since Minja has less mass so torque is less. However price difference between ninja and minja are...
