Re: New 23 or 24 inch monitor Ultrasharp?

I'm a very satisfied U2412M customer. I did a bit of eyeball calibration (with some help from various forum posts) and find it's extremely accurate.

Noctua fans ticking all of a sudden

About a month ago, I noticed a faint ticking coming from my case and decided to investigate. I discovered a ticking NF-S12B FLX that I had been using for an exhaust in my Fractal R3. Luckily, I had a an NF-P14 sitting idle. I rejiggered my setup so that that I now had two NF-P14s on my NH-D14 heatsi...

Re: Quiet HTPC build advice

Thanks for the advice, Abula. I will make a post over on AVS forums. I was looking at that Sapphire "ultimate" 6670 card, but unfortunately it is too tall to fit in the GD05. :(, as you say.

Re: Trying to strike a balance between power headroom and no

Wow, thank you all for the feedback. As for the mod, yeah I cut away the rear fan grille and replaced it with a much less restrictive wire fan guard. I didn't reverse the direction of the fan though... Ces, did you realize a benefit from doing this? It would seem to go against the general cooling pr...

Trying to strike a balance between power headroom and noise

Hi SPCR forums, This is my first post here so please be gentle. I've got a Lian Li PC-v351, which is an idiosyncratic case to say the least. It fits really well into my entertainment setup and I love the aesthetics, so I want to keep it. My GF is opposed to a tower case in the middle of our living r...
