It's less about the "hard" - it's more about the "doing it". I'm pretty busy with work, and wouldn't mind having less hassle, as it were the ideal concept of "order components - it all comes assembled and good to go" so to speak. It's not that I can't do it / that it's hard, it's just that it all ea...

*ponders* The thing that worries me a tiny bit about the Ninja is the sheer weight of it ... esp. since (due to space) my system will need to stand as a tower. Other than that - endpcnoise DO actually ship abroad - I've been looking at their offerings a bit. With the current ratio between £ and $ (...

Searching for the white elephant?

Greetings folks - I'm back after a rather long stint of absence of ... gosh ... three years it must be now (though ... it feels far, far longer).

I agree with the downward trend.

I've been around 4-5K PPW, but now am scraping just below 4K PPW ... and this, despite having "borged" another ... *does maths* ... 12 GHz worth of P4's to the cause (for a little while anyway).

Very odd.

Concerning the fans, that's a matter of perception (or hearing, as it were).

Personally, I didn't need to mod my Enermax, but then I've not yet attached an X800XT to it, so there might be some more noise coming from it yet.

But it's a good little box and behaves plenty well and is VERY quiet :).

"My fan clicks." "Is the card properly seated?" ============= Why does this remind me of scripted questions. "I can't power up my motherrboarrd."

The V1.3 / V2.0 is quite likely the ATX PSU spec they're referrring to (2.0 being the one with ... PCI Express... :)).

My personal thoughts:

- too big
- too heavy
- too loud

:).

Also, you're a bit fluffed (as far as airflow is concerned) if your CPU socket's orientation is "wrong" for you ... blowing the air from bottom to top (or vice versa) rarther from intake to outtake is ... rather silly :).

What I don't get is the advertising of a fanless solution ... that rerquires a fan (albeit ehaust). D'uh ... :)

Other than that, is this a case of even a blind chicken finds a grain / a bad manufacturer make a good product once in a blue moon?
