i've been having issues with my gigabyte ga7n400 making clearly audible electrical noises when i enable the s3 idling patch. (this thread
I'm planning on upgrading to one of the new venice cores with a matching motherboard once they're available. Obviously the curent cool and quiet technology would be a little more advanced than back on the athlonxp but are the motherboards truely silent?
at the moment the dfi lanparty looks pretty good for my system, but are the capacitors etc truely silent when there isn't any fan noise to mask it?
if not, any other recommendations, boardwise?
