I noticed that if I install the Zalman CNPS7000-AlCu and the Fan Mate 1 on my D875PBZ motherboard, the speed of the fan will remain constant (unless I open the case and adjust the voltage on the Fan Mate). However, is it safe and recommended to use an external Fan controller like the Zalman ZM-MFC1 ...

Thanks for the replies. I got one more question: I am going to use Arctic Silver 5 to install the Zalman HSF. I was thinking of following the Instructions on the Arctic Silver website , but that method differs a lot from what I have seen in most websites. Should I follow the instructions on the Arct...

The Zalman CNPS7000-AlCu comes with the Fanmate 1, but I was reading the motherboard manual (D875PBZ) which says that the processor fan is: -Wired to a fan tachometer input of the hardware monitoring and fan control ASIC. -Closed-loop fan control that can adjust the fan speed or switch the fan on or...

Quality of New P4 3.2 Ghz Stock HSF

I'm ready to build a pc with a new Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz processor on an Intel D875PBZ Motherboard and an Antec SLK3700BQE case. Should I stick with the HSF that came with the processor? I was looking at the review of the P4 stock HSF , but that's not the same HSF i got. The one I got is bigger, and mad...

Question about SLK3700BQE and SATA Drives

I noticed how the SLK3700BQE case has the weird mounting rack for hard drives. Has anyone had problems installing SATA drives in this rack? I am planning on building a PC with this case and 2 SATA drives, using the regular SATA cables that came with my motherboard (D875PBZ). Is there enough space th...

I'm going to build the PC, and depending on the noise and temperatures, i'll do modifications as needed, even though i'm not a big fan of modding.

I think i'm gonna go with the Antec 3700BQE. It seem appropriate for my system, since i'm not going to overclock anything. I would have wanted a case with a nice window, but i guess it's not really a big priority. Thanks to everyone who helped me choose.

If any of you knows of a case in which the Audigy Bay thingy doesn't fit, please let me know. I'm building a PC and i'm still choosing a case, so I want a case which will accomodate the Audigy nicely. I'm thinking of choosing an Antec case, but i'm not sure. Here's the thread which describes the cas...

I need to install the Sony DRU-510A DVD burner and the front adapter that comes with the Audigy 2 ZS sound card in my new case. However, those two items have a front face which is not flat, and even though I might be able to install them in the Chenbro Xpider case, they probably don't fit correctly....

Have a look at the Chenbro Xpider / Gaming Bomb case, that could be what you want - it's mostly black, with a window in the side I like that case. The only problem with this case is that it seems to obstruct cd-rom and dvd-rom drives. I have a sony dvd-burner, which does not have a flat face, so it...

Thank you for your comments. The thing is, i'm new to all this airflow and cooling stuff. I've built a couple of PC's before, but I never worried about airflow or noise. Now that i'm building a high-end system, I want to make sure that it works fine without overheating. I don't want too much noise e...
