Does anyone know if there is an adaptor out there that would let me use a notebook CD drive on a standard desktop? I want to build get a SFF.

When the drive was in my notebook, it made a lot of noise. Now, it is silent and I didn't even put the cover on or screw it in yet. Does anyone have a...

Anyone try using 2 fanless PS?

Temp problem solution

I see you found out the hard way about a classic and offend forgotten problem. The fan frame is there not just to support the motor, but it is also design to direct the air follow.
