Still... im very fucking impressed. I wonder why there isnt a company that hires people like YOU to build the PCs they are selling. Then and only then you get your moneys worth.

Ive seen some pretty amazing builds in here and yours is definitly one of the top 3-4.

more and more people want quiet builds and i really belive there is a market out there for PCs that are quiet from the start.

With all the fucking time ive put into trying diffrent stuff i definitly would have payed someone like you 100-200$ to do everything. It would be worth it in the end.

The backside of your mobo tray looks much, much better than the inside of my case. :( I'm deeply ashamed.

:D

I had used an Angle grinder. Something like that: http://ocs.skileurope.com/skilocs-defau ... rod_id=524

The cuts are not that clean because I'm not very skilled, but the holes are covered with material so nobody cant se the ugly cuts

Some changes...
Yesterday I completely disassembled my system ...
I replaced in some places Paxmate with AcoustiPack ...
I removed the dust ...
I made holes in the bottom of the case, and I attached a set of wheels LianLi WB-01 ...
I put a pair of cold cathode Vantec NXP-301 ...
I rebuilt the WM

I'm sure it'd cost more to produce... but whatever.
Its a trade-off, two much material taken off the mobo tray and it won't be stiff enough to do its job of supporting the motherboard and components fixed to it, conversly take to little off and it could make the computer harder/more expensive to produce.

From what I rememeber from the my Chinese lecturer who was trying to teach me how how to model stresses in plate strutures (like cars and stuff), there is lots of complicated maths to modeling a plate with loads in 3 dimensions.

An example of a case maker taking a little two much material off the backside of the mobo tray are the Korean JNC 4JA series of cases from 2000-2003. JNC took a little two much off the backside and as a result, the cases cause the motherboards to warp slightly. This is wasn't an issue with older hardware, but the heavier heatsinks that started to aprear in 2004, brought the problem to light.

JNC don't support the 2JA, 3JA, 4JA and 5JA series cases (mainly as they are dicontinued).

Beautiful machine, well done.

There's no fan on that Accelero S1, is there?

How quiet is it, at what distance does it become totally silent?

During the day can't be heard, regardless of distance. In the night is completely silent from about 1m

Really neat job! I'm getting some AcoustiPack my self and I got a few new ideas from this setup that I will looking forward to apply on my own system.

I agree, it's hardware-porn.

The most beautiful build I've seen in my life.

not yet, to be perfect, he'd need a passive cooled psu, and ssds instead of disks. then it would be perfectly silent.. :)

but it looks pretty yet now :)

Indeed but... I'm not feeling very comfortable with a fanless PSU and SSD are still quite expensive... Maybe I will swap the Seasonic fan with Noctua P12 but I'm still thinking about that...

I finally got a Noctua NH-D14. I took this instead Cooler Master Z600 I wonder why Noctua Nh-D14 is not yet reviewed on SPCR... It seams to be the best cooler on the market today... On all categories, high RPM, low RPM and FANLESS. Tommorrow I will probably instal it...

L.E. I did it today:D

cpu and GFX temperatures

Post by c.ruel » Mon May 17, 2010 8:28 am

Really nice looking build. Just interested to know what temperatures you are getting on idle and load with passive cooling for cpu and GFX (it looks like your graphics card is passively cooled ... is it?). Also the rear fan is that intake or exhaust?

Yes, I keep the VGA fanless.
The rear fan is exhaust...
