A quiet fanned or fanless PSU from a quality manufacturer with 300+ watts should do the trick here. From your system configuration, your hard drives and memory (combined) will use consume more power than your P3-733 Coppermine (27W max). Heck, a 300 watt PSU in your configuration should give you a d...

You might want to consider thinking twice about that Vantec Nexus, especially if it's the NXP-201 (the 4-channel 5.25" version), because I got one that BUZZED (it's a PWM-based unit) and annoyed the living daylights when the fans were turned down, defeating the purpose of the unit altogether. Vantec...

Whoa, that's some crazy low speed (~ 10 CFM?). That is truly awesome though. My system's got a Zalman 7000 on an AXP-M 2400+ @ 2.35GHz running at 2,300-2,800 rpm, Abit FanEQ- (on an Abit KV7) controlled (triggers max speed at 111F/44C socket temps but more concerned about 140F/60C+ PWM temps). It's ...

I wouldn't think that 0.28 - 0.33C/W would be too bad for the Zalman 7000 AlCu on an Athlon XP. It's pretty close along the line of its rated cooling performance. Case airflow will also affect overall cooling performance. As for the temperature monitoring, I think your Asus motherboard does report t...

No SilenX's on me, but I have two Vantec 80mm Stealths. Both aren't very quiet at full speed (ANNOYING hi-pitched bearing noise), but are pretty good, noise-wise at even 3/4 speed. IMO, the Stealth wouldn't be a bad choice (but not the best) as an exhaust fan in brand-name PCs that don't already hav...
