I have my Nexus Breeze case and today received my email that remaining components of my system build are shipping (probably Monday).
One of those is the MSI K8N mobo - (see link below)
I just checked on it trying to see how many USB and firewire ports I would have at rear (since case only carries one of each at front).
Then I realised - there is a little fan cooling the Northbridge and I just KNOW that is going to interfere with my quiet desires.
Can anyone here recommend best practise to deal with this? Is passive an option? Do I have to simple replace fan? Make standoffs to use larger and undervolt it? I thought I had everything planned! There always seems to be something to catch you out.....
Oh yes, and I know how I will want to press on with this - so if anyone knows a UK supplier that can ship the requisite panflo or whatever to me fast that would also be helpful (I will check through the recommended suppliers - think there was a fan specialist there, but not sure if they shipped fast!)
If you're curious to see rest of my order incase I have overlooked anything else it is here - http://forums.silentpcreview.com/viewtopic.php?t=16465
and the graphics card will be a 9700 pro i already have with the Arctic silencer applied. I am hoping the Nexus 350 PSu will be enough, but if not my current rig has a Tagan 480 and I will exchange the two.
