Re: Biostar NM70I-847 - cheap 17w Celeron 847 + motherboard?

I think that the Xigmatek( This one ? ) NB heatsink is a bad choice - unless you make a four-point mounting system with support on the CPU. All the low power CPU's have the bare silicon as cooling surface - pretty easy to chip/crack. I'd rather go with the Enzotech CNB-SI ; smaller, but enough to co...

Re: Simulating duplex printing?

When you choose to print a multi-page document, you can choose to print only a subset of the pages, like odd or even pages - that's the "poor mans" duplex printing: choose one run of even pages, turn around and reload the printouts, then choose to print the odd pages. This choice is usually on opera...

Re: Changing fan in Corsair TX650 V2

First, the measured start-up voltage: 3.92-3.95V, depending on the position(horizontal or vertical), so it's safe to assume 4.0V as general start-up voltage. Yate Loon RPM confusion: the 140mm and the 135mm series carries the same part #'s: http://www.yateloon.com/en/2_1356_58938/product/DC_FAN_SERI...

Re: Changing fan in Corsair TX650 V2

Yes, I'm the one with the Scythe Kama Flex in the Corsair TX650 V2; the original fan model# is D14BH-12. The info on the net about this fan is contradictory, according to Yate Loon the max RPM is 1800, some other reviews say 2300 or 2800 - so take your pick. IMO the RPM is around 2800, because I "fe...

I might, except I can't try it until I remove the Noctua, and if I destroy the rubber mounts that are holding that in place, then I won't really have the option later. So it's kind of a pre-req.

Re: Need some advice for a 1U cpu cooler

An extra Noctua NF-B9 PWM will operate from 300rpm to 1300 rpm. The rpm is the primary single factor in determining, among reasonably well designed fans, which fan will generate the most noise.

Re: C2Q stock cooler replacement

The 212EVO has no gaps between the heat-pipes on the processor contact side, unlike the 212+, which has some gaps; result: more surface for heat transfer.
