Hey welcome to the team! I got started by reading some posts at [H]ard OCP forums. Guys were saying how they got such and such pts per day from their new overclock and I was like "Hey, I want points too!". SO I started folding for HardOCP, but at the same time was a junkie for SPCR. When I found out...

2 PC's at home are back to 100%, and I now have 10 procs going at work. Roughly 24 Ghz going right now. My stats should be getting back to the orange zone soon.

Not sure which way you would want to point it, but I think your first assumption is the correct one: no good can come from those side panel fans, unless you absolutely need directed air over something like a VGA card. I would limit it to a 5V panaflo L1A max. Problem is the fan is so close to the ou...

I find it handy to roll up a magazine or something and hold it to my ear, then point it around the case looking for the loudest component. I am sure I look silly while doing it, but it sure is effective.

Doesn't the integrated Intel P4 fan use thermal speed controls right on the fan? Maybe that's why they don't let you use any other methods.

Watercooling worked pretty well in my sonata. The 120mm rad for the Waterchill fits the rear fan perfectly.

The reason I asked is because someone posted about his Nexus NX-3000 being noisy and the fan had a different model number than the fan on the Nexus NX-3000 that MikeC reviewed. So I was wondering what fan you had in your Nexus. The implication was that Nexus sent MikeC a "special" sample or early p...

The removable side panel, actually. I have the screws down tight, but it just doesn't seem like the fit was very good on my case. I may just try some electrical tape on the touching edges, but the sound is still "tinny". I already ordered some 3/8 melamine.

I know its not removable. I am thinking you could just "jam" it in there and let the squeezing between the mobo tray and the metal side panel hold it in place with friction. Maybe even some type of "blown-in" or foam filler could be used.

I wonder if you can get melamine or some ofther foam thin enough to jam between the mobo tray the the non-removable side of the Sonata. It would have to be rigid, yet squishy, and thin. Has anyone tried this?

I know Panaflo make a TL1A in the 60mm variety. It is 15mm thick. Either this is a typo or Panaflo makes a new 92mm x 15mm fan.

Not really sure why you need an intake fan if you have a 120mm exhaust. Anyway, I think teh difference is as noted above. The TL1A is 15mm thick, while the standard L1A is 25mm.

Problem with the Eluminx keyboards is that they use EL technology, which makes a high pitched whine. ANyone with a quiet or silent PC will hear it right away.
