No articles or reviews in over 6 months, almost no forum activity.

Just curious.

There's a chance (it's dying), I guess.

Eh, SPCR is a small community, and not advertised. Unless you are explicitly searching for ways to silence your PC, you are not even going to know about the site.

Add the fact that most young ppl (I sound old now... damn) would rather use reddit, twitter, tumblr, random video sites and the like, (all high-noise and nigh impossible to search efficiently) meaning all traditional "forums" have problems retaining user numbers, and you'll see it's not really an SPCR problem, but a global.

Maybe creating & curating an official subreddit would mean more exposure, but we would also need content for it.

I know MikeC said he recently moved houses and has had to reconstruct the anechoic chamber, among a million other things when moving to a new house. I'm hoping things pick up a bit here when he's more settled.

I posted a similar thread - it sure looks like the site is pretty dead.

I know that I need this site less then I did in the past as noise isn't an issue for hard drives anymore as I only use them in servers where I don't care about noise. For any workstations I use SSDs. And recent CPUs have much lower TDPs so cooling them quietly isn't much of a challenge. And the integrated graphics on Intel's recent CPUs is good enough for pretty much everything other than gaming and VR so you don't need to worry about cooling a graphics card as often. I have two HTPC builds in my house that are totally solid state so totally silent using HD-Plex cases.

But I really like the reviews here of CPUs, fans, cases, etc.

I hope the site comes back to life.
