I've been lurking for a long time has got to be best place for Silent PC enthusiasts but never bothered to register and post... sorry.
I've had a go at a couple of basic (compared to you guys) over the past couple of years and just finished up this one so here goes.
only one pic for now I'm affraid
The purpose of the PC is to be mainly a media PC but have the grunt for some serious development work operating occasionally in quite hot surroundings.
The specs are,
Antec P180 Mini
Enermax Modu82+ 425W
Phenom 9950 125W + Scythe Ninja II
4GB Crucial Ballistix Pc6400 (cas 4)
640GB WD AAKS
LG Blu Ray
I'm not an AMD fan boi (well I sort of am but..) but since all I needed was a decent IGP and the price of the Q6600 (and all intel chips really) is climbing in the UK I decided the 125W 9950 would be a nice chip to use.
It sits happily at around 32 degree's idle and mid to high 40's under load which is pretty good I think with all the case fans on low and slipstream running
It's silent by my standards but probably not everyones lol
Other PC's I'm running at the moment
My gaming rig which is horribly loud and the spec was just awful.. don't count on friends to help you.. learn yourself! lol This was my first build in a long time but I've taken the time to get the cables nice at least
My other attempt at a similar PC to the P180 mini (there is a passive 8500GT in there now and the mobo power cable is round the back where it should be).
and my TJ08
Anyway I was a bit bored and decided to post them all up. Enjoy or ridicule at your pleasure
