first of all, the jing ting can be bought at http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/chchcojt.html which claims to be shipping around the world. read my first post, it pretty much answers the rest. I am only running the exhaust fan, no front fans, and my system is pretty much silent. Just a slight whoosh...

Passive HS for NF4 mobo that does not block pci-e slot?

hi, i currently have a zalman nb47j hs and a DFI NF4 LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR (man i wish they would make the model names shorter). the zalman is blocking one pci-e slot which wasn't a problem at first as i wasn't doing sli. recently i purchased an xi-fi audio card and the only place it fits is one sl...

Re: Want a new build but have 1000 questions (sorta long)

Also, any thoughts about centralized automation of fan speed in the absense of temperature controlled fans? As mentioned, check out Asus Q-Fan. My DFI NF4 SLI-DR has similar technology which involves controlling fan speeds through the provided Smartguardian software or set it to "Automatic." I'd be...

if i were you.... First, suspend the HDDs. While you may not hear them now with your 5 fans, the noise is there, and the best way to make them quieter is to suspend them. Second, if i could, i would get rid of the 5th fan under the optical drives. I'd also tin snip any fan grills that may be adding ...

hmm, well, switching the cpu fan around so that it blows outward didn't really do much. It did raise cpu temps a bit but did little to pwmic and chipset temps. I have since lowered fan speeds a bit so the system runs a little hotter. Fan speeds are set to increase when temps reach a certain threshol...

bro, the fan is blowing downward on the hs. Do you also have a 3200 venice? As for CFM... AFAIK, to calculate that, i'd have to know CFM for a given RPM, since CFM depends on RPM. The fan is rated for 36.87 CFM, but i don't know the corresponding RPM measurement to that. edit: welcome to spcr, btw =)

thanks. i have since lowered the fan speed to take away what little whoosh i heard. What do you all think about where i have my hdd positioned? I noticed in Mike's p150, he has it toward the top. My reasoning for the bottom is that most of the cold air comes in from the bottom, but i could be wrong.
