Im finnaly getting the case I want:
Now I dont plan on using this as a home theater pc( have to be almost dead silent to work), but would like it to be reasonably quiet. I will be hooking it up to my stereo system using a high quality dac. This is also a pc that I would like to live with for a while so performence is important.
P4 2,4GHz 533 bus
zalman psu(new model)
cnps6500 zalman flower+ arm and fan
rounded ide cables
two 60mm case fans at the back, prob. papst
I know the parts are totally out of porportion with each other. This is partly because I want a fast processor and already have the ge4 at home. Secondly, for some strange reason the 2,4GHz is right now cheaper than the 2GHz version, atleast here in sweden....
This is the inside of the case:
As u can see its a pretty small area, and since I have never built a computer on my own before, I want to ask you a couple of things:
1. am I totally dreaming here, or will this baby burn up instantly?
2. If it doesnt, will I be forced to crank up the speed of the case fans because of the extensive heat? Making it pretty loud as a hole. I mean, is there no use investing money in silent parts like barra., papst casefan, zalman flower and psu when the heat is so hot they are forced to work at high speeds making them very loud....
3. Thinking about putting some kind material inside the case, lowering computer noise. Can I just forget about that, to hot??
