I wonder how Pepsodent (tooth paste ) does against their top 5? . following test (in portuguese) has tooth paste included. looking at the graphic the last 4 are: "batom rosa" = pink lipstick "creme dental" = tooth paste "creme dental (12h depois)" = toothpaste after 12 hours "sem pasta térmica" = w...

Re: Internet Explorer 6 users have low IQs, study says

It isn't obvious to me that IQ has any direct correlation to wealth.... except that maybe really really stupid people may tend to be less wealthy than average IQ people. Are you being deliberately obtuse? Do you look at the real world much? I'm reasonably certain that any survey would show that gen...

Re: Acer P193W - A word of warning.

I got that one, too

I can here nothing from the front, even putting me ear on the screen

I can here something on the backside, but only coming very close (20 cm). But who sits on the backside and that close? lol

Re: After an inexpensive and quiet PSU

I bought the Antec NEo eco 520 (still not arrived). According to the users here it is the same as the 520W Seasonic S12II-520, but cheaper. The Corsair CX seams to be louder than those two (according to the test here). Better is VX (according to test)

Re: CoolerM Sileo 510 vs Antec Sonata Proto vs CoolerM Centu

hey, nice to here from someone having my future case. (They sent it today, wtf) I think the foam does help least that is my own personal view. I added foam to the original Sonata cases too and that def helped more than a bit. But it depends on what is in there if you have quiet fans and a fanless gr...

Pentium D hotter than Pentium 4?

got an ooooold mainboard with a 3Ghz Pentium 4. I want to buy a new mainboard and chip at the end of the year. I could get a Pentium D 925 for $30, so I was thinking of buying it until I get my new mainboard. I know, both get very hot, but can I expect the Pentium D getting even hotter as the Pentiu...

Re: exaust pipe in labyrinth form on the exaust fan

thinking it again, the fan would have more resistance, thus it would it would turn slower. if you speed the fan up than, so it has the same speed as before, you will have the same pressure. or what am I missing now? There would not necessarily be a one to one relationship between fan speed and CFM ...

Re: exaust pipe in labyrinth form on the exaust fan

The longer the exhaust pipe, and the more turns in it, the more pressure the fan needs to have. Often, more pressure = more speed = more noise Pic a quiet fan to start with and you won't need a muffler ;) oh yes, haven't thought on this.... :lol: thinking it again, the fan would have more resistanc...

yea, it was just an idea which came to my mind reading a test that showed that the major noise from inside the case comes out from the exaust.

exaust pipe in labyrinth form on the exaust fan

the major noise come out the exaust fan, so why not make the noise "move a bit". perhaps a acustic foam in it, too.
what do you guys think?

thanks to all, you are a great help.

Re: PSU in a tropical country?

IMO, the best way to deal with this is to use a case with a bottom mounted psu. This way, even if the ambient temperature reaches 40c, the psu will work well within spec and shouldn`t behave any worse than in the hot box tests done by SPCR, where the psu intake temperatures are probably even higher...
