Correct - I was trying to get more airflow to my passive video card - but no, I don't think there's any 'best practice' proven yet. I am, however, open to suggestions - and as oscar3d has pointed out, negative-pressure may a better solution.halifaxpeter wrote:I have a question for you and other members reading the forum...
What was your thinking behind the decision to mount the upper chamber front fan on the drive cage, rather than removing the cage and mounting it right at the front case opening?
Was it to ensure air flow directly over the Gigabyte gfx card - as opposed to choosing to ensure intake of cool air from outside by mounting the fan at the front of the case?
Is there 'best practice' on the placement of the upper chamber front fan in the P182 I'm not aware of?
It's pretty loud - but acceptable in my opinion. I have heard that yes, Asus is the quietest. Having never owned the Asus, I cannot compare them. The pioneer has a wooshing sound, rather than the motor whine of my old drives.Stany wrote:Hi how does the Pioneer DVD drive performs noisewise??
Believe it or not, these were taken with a point-and-shoot (Sony DSC-W50). I try my best to make these pictures look the best - because while I have the money to build a computer like this, I don't have enough to shell out for a shiny SLRmexell wrote:Wow, I like your photos (and your system as well).
Especially I like the play with depth-of-field in the HDD shot. What camera and lens were you using?
*oscar3d, I'll experiment with that negative-pressure theory.
