I'm fully aware of that. As did zippy / pc p @ c. I'm merely suggestion the tecnical nature of the problem is largely DFI's fault, given that a motherboard shouldn't have surge currents on 5VSB out side of atx spec. or something :) . The following link explains what i'm saying better.

I'd suggest seasonic / zippy / [email protected] admit fault because its easier to replace a few PSU's for affected users than recall an entire motherboard line.

Anyways back to the topic:

How about reviewing the tuniq 120mm cpu cooler?

I don't mean to sound rude, but is there any reason why spcr has never reviewed any of Antec's TruePower2 PSU's? They're pretty quiet at a rated 21.3 dB.

Hi there. I'm a new member and I've read various reviews and found them to be very helpful.

The one that caught my eye was the Silverstone TJ06 case. I thought that was pretty good apart from the HDD placement like you said.

They've released the TJ07 now, and it's a completely different internal setup. I would really like to read your review on this new model and I hope you will add it to your list of upcomming reviews. Also, maybe the Akasa Eclipse 62 case would be good.

Erm yeah, now it's almost identical in layout to the P180. Of course immitation is the best form of flattery :)

I suppose it's a P180 for anyone who doesn't like doors. It does look very good though, an almost Lian-Li look (which I'm a big fan of).

lol, yeah, I was meaning different from the TJ06, not completely unique

From the Silverstone site.
Quote:
The main structure for the TJ07 is crafted from a solid extruded aluminum panel measuring more than 164cm (5.3 feet) in length and 4mm to 8mm in thickness.... ...The end result is an aluminum chassis frame with more than twice the structural rigidity over average steel cases, helping to practically eliminate vibration-induced noise.

I would like a review on some of Tagans PSUs. Preferably the 530-U22 or 580-U22 from the 2force-serie
Louder on minimum load than NeoHE but to is way lower (24-30dB vs 18-40dB)

Something that's bugged me is the Sonata II relative to Antec's other new offerings;

P180 - it's supposed to be the "performance" case due to having a blowhole. Otherwise, seems to be their flagship quiet case.
P150 - Appears to be one of their quiet case, come with a PSU
Sonata II - ditto

All three cases give the impression they are supposed to be the quietest of the quietest. The P150 doesn't have a door, but has the built in drive suspension and wire channels the Sonata II doesn't.

I guess what I'm saying is since the official line is that the Sonata II is supposed to be their "silence" oriented case, it needs a fair review to see if it is or not. Given the drooling over the P180 and the P150 over the last few months, it feels like the Sonata II hasn't gotten a good look at it and has gotten lost in the backwash of these other two cases.

I think it needs a fair review to see if it does or does not do as good or better job than the other two cases.

Just noticed there's a SilenX PSU, that's a turnup for the books! Did they send you it themselves or was it through a retailer?

And one of those expensive Zalman cases I see... nice :)

I just noticed that the silverstone st56zf, a single 80mm fan psu, was dropped from the review list. The silverstone st56f or strider, a 120mm fan psu, has been added to the list.

Was the st56zf pulled because it was immediately obvious that it would not be a worthy contender as a quiet psu and silverstone decided to substitute the strider? How does this process work? Why was the st56zf dropped? I was looking forward to it. - FG

Yes. Expect the Strider review shortly, I finished it a few days ago.

Was that "Yes, the ST56ZF was dropped because it was a turkey" or "Yes, Silverstone killed the review and asked us to review the Strider instead"?

Yes, the ST56ZF was dropped because it was a turkey, AND yes, Silverstone asked us to review the Strider instead.

Any plans to review the Nexus NX-5000?

Author:  frankgehry [ Fri Jan 13, 2006 12:57 pm ]
Post subject: 

Devonavar,

The st56zf has been reviewed elsewhere and was rated very good. It appears to be of very high quality, but silence was not a design priority as the fan is rated at 4500rpm. That doesn't make it a turkey. If there are other problems, I would like to know. Was it incompatible with a particular motherboard? Did it fail to meet its advertised efficiency rating? Was it defective in any way? Have there been a significant number of returns. - FG

Frank, we didn't review it. It was too loud for us to even consider. End of story, at least for us.

I agree, it does appear to be high quality ... it even has dual main transformers. However, it also measures ~30dBA with no load. Like Mike said, end of story. This is SPCR.

I was wondering would SPCR ever review the Akasa Amber series fans. They are very quiet and push a lot of air.

The 120mm fans are quoted at 1400RPM to push 44.8CFM at 18dB, the 92mm at 1400RPM to push 29CFM at 18dB, and the 80mm at 1400RPM to push 25.4CFM at 20dB.

These specs are pretty good but I know that company quoted specs are usually a little ambitious shall we say. But if these specs were relatively accurate, I’d imagine that these fans are worthy of the recommended list.

I have a question about this topic:
Could you/would you mark the items that were already reviewed? Or will you simply delete them from the list?

Author:  Tephras [ Thu Jan 19, 2006 1:38 pm ]

They will be deleted according to the first post: "Reviewed items will get deleted, new items added to the bottom."

The new Nexus 5000 psu is also a good choice for a review.

Post subject:  Would like to see E-Power Tagan Reviews

It would be appreciated if tests on the Tagan 480-u22 and possibly the higher wattage models could be done. I have one and its very silent and the voltages are very stable (measured with digital multimeter). :)

For the Asus Motherboards.

When you get around to testing them, will you run a stress test with the motherboard on its side and upside down? There are several cases out there that have the motherboard mounted either horizontally or in a vertical upside down position. I am curious as to how the chipset heatsink will perform in those positions.

Thanks!

I noticed that the Sintek 500w SLI was taken out of the upcoming reiew list. I presume that it was too loud to even consider. Am I correct?
