Thank you all for such a wealth of information for silencing PC's - I love this site! I recently went out and picked up the Antec Sonata case go go along with a bunch of other upgrades I have made over the last few months.
a7n8x - nfs 2.0
athlon 2600 - athlon 3200
ocz pc2700 rev 3.2 (1 gig) - ocz pc3500 (1gig)
radeon 9500 pro - HiS radeon 9800 pro IceQ
Thermaltake volcano 7+ - Thermalright SI 97
Beige no name case with antec 80mm fan - Sonata case
SWapped out the 380 Sonata PSU with my truepower 430
Fans I have in current rig:
120mm fan (came with case)
92 mm SilenX fan (on thermalright si97)
Also have a SilenX 120mm that I want to install where drive cage is - mounting screws that came with fan did not fit and grommets can not be used due to makeup of fan.
Onto my question:
the silenX 92mm does not seem to move much air - should I chalk it up as a loss and move to a different fan?
Should I install the silenX in the case in the front or replace the default 120mm with it and stick with the single 120mm fan setup?
System used to be very load and I must say that the sonata made a TREMENDOUS difference in noise. Happy with the change for now, but might get exotic and do some additional silencing in the future.
Thanks all for the info in advance
