I am pretty sure it is. Should have the cd on the 11th. He would not tell me much other than to flash the drive and that should fix it and I should give him a call either way to let him know how it goes. I asked him when it would be posted on the website and he stated that he was not sure. They mig...

Nidec P80 the quietest?

I'm looking for a HD that has the least noise. Would Samsung P80 series w/ Nidec motor be the best bet? Is the up coming P120 series quieter than P80's?
Thanks for any help =)

I am planing on replacing my volcano 9 smart fan with this so i'm not sure if 20cfm will suffice (my cpu is a T-bred 2100+). That is why I'm considerin...

SilenX or Nexus real silent fan

Anyone know which fan is quieter at 12V? (the 80mm ones)

SilenX or Nexus real silent fan
Both seem like pretty quiet from online reviewers, so I need help to decide which one to get.

thanks!
