Nice cabling! But please give some more specs.

What is the red foam you used to isolate your case? It seems to be some sort of fiber. And that chrome case fan, is that by any chance a Titan? I think they look great but I'm hesitant in bying a few myself, I don't know if they can run silent. What are your experiences?

High-density foam is a product called 'Safety-Mat' purchased from Home Depot. It is normally used to create a safe floor space for a child's play area.
The fan is an aluminum Evercool 120 mm. It is very quiet @ 5V.

What kind of cpu and case temps are you getting?

Are you using a front 120 mm fan?

ahrbruz... how is it going,.....?


:) I`m waiting for my P160. Should be here on Thursday.

Anyway....I saw the safety Mat in Home Depot...but does it really reduce the noise well? Otherwise I can only affor PAx.Mate, nothing else.

Hi again!

I terms of the 'Safety Mat', it dampens the effects on sound given an aluminum case, and, it is relatively inexpensive. By following the advice in other threads on this forum: decoupling fans, lower fan speeds, suspended/isolated hard drives etc, you will end up with a quiet and cool running system.

Have fun with the new case!
