You can set a low mode temperature trigger and fan voltage and a high mode temperature trigger and fan voltage, and base it upon one of a few different sensors; fan voltage minimum setting is as low as 6.0V on certain ports....

A link is generally a good idea for people too lazy to go searching for one themselves.

This thing does look pretty interesting; I'd like to see somebody do a comparison on this against XP-120 and CNSP7700-(Al)Cu some time, and if we're really lucky, include a CNPS9500 in there, too.

Ed's (Effectively) Silent K8 Rig--Moving Beyond Sigma One

Okay, I admit that this is rather long past due. I've revamped my silent rig twice since doing Sigma One, but was too lazy to go through the trouble of shooting pics etc. Since I had a bit of free time finally, I figured that while I was at it for the second overhaul, might as well get some photos i...

"Unlike DRAM-based main memory, the iRam card doesn't lose data when the PC is switched off, said Thomas Chang, a product manager at Giga-byte. As long as the PC is plugged into a socket, a very small amount of current continues to run through some parts of the system, including the PCI slots. This...

I'm afraid latencies and seek times have nothing to do with bandwidth, and consequently, transfer rates. It's the same thing with kids and food: even with a small mouth they can taste the food right away, but eating a large meal can take a long time ;) For me, though, the bandwidth between the plat...

They came in already; they're way nicer than the PCB ones I had before, and they come with clear instructions on which direction to attach them to the drive; also, the necessary pin has already been knocked out for compatibility with IDE cables with the blocked pin. I can't be happier!
