After years and years of trying everything in sight, this is the very best. I tried watercooling, passive watercooling, zero fans, the 'Cuda drives, hundreds of different fans, a few cases, many heatsinks, and 5 PSUs. And this is still the best.

Specs:
+Abit NF7-S v1.old
+1700+ DUT3C (1.47v)
+GF4 Ti4200 128MB
+2x512MB Mushkin Level 1 Black PC3500
+250GB WD 7200
+Lite-On DVD/CDR 52X
+Seasonic "Tornado" 300w

&

+Sunbeam Baybus
+Panaflo 120mm OEM
+SilentDrive 2002
+Speeze FalconRock w/ 80mm Panaflo L1A
+Good faith & frequent prayer (especially in UT2K4)

Guys, take it from me. I am crazy about noise. I've found very few people who are as sensitive as me; maybe it comes from years of living on empty acres, but I hear everything. So when I say that 99.99% of the time you're not hearing your fans, you're hearing your HD, try it out. When I moved from passive WC (I mean I had not one single fan--not in the PSU, nowhere) to what I have now, I noticed nada. When I got that SilentDrive and put it on top of some sorbothane from McMaster-Carr, it was night & day. Those engineered "quiet" hard drives can't hold a candle to this device.


It's not silent. But, my CRT buzzes louder than it. So, that's good enough for me.

>I'm thinking of moving to SFF... anyone do the cube thing?<

Cheers,
alex

ps-when I say "very cheap", I mean in relation to how much money I've spent in search of the ever-elusive "silent PC".

Nice work but DUDE, shorten and sleeve those cables! This, and finishing the rear grill cut will make that system look real sweet.

Go axle, go axle, go, go, go! :D
