Been reading up on the forums and articles, and I must say you guys are really picky about the quiet thing (I mean that in a good way
I am trying to build a quiet PC and need some advice.
I'm putting together dual 1.6 xeon processors that will be overclocked to at least 2.4 on an Asus PC-DL mobo. From the fellows at www.2cpu.com
, I was told that I would need at least 450W power supply to run this overclock along with my ATI AIW 9800 and 2x HDs.
I can't seem to locate any quiet Power Supplies here that's over 450W. I was wondernig if you guys can point me to one, even a 500W that's relatively quiet for that purpose.
As well, it seems the the recommended list of cases in the articles on this site are all UGLY heh. Is that just a universial law, that quiet and cool PC cases have to be ugly?
The only thing that comes close to pleasing my aesthetic taste, on the list that is, is the SLK3700BQE.. meaning I'm most likely considering the 3000b as I will swap the power supply out anyway.
I have a small small room, and I'll need to leave this rig on to render 24/7. Quiet is a must but I'm afriad my OCed dual Xeon is gonna blow my ear drums out.
THanks for reading and thanks in advance for those that reply!
