When you've had it on for 8 hours minimum, can you tell me how hot is the PSU to touch? How hot is your case to touch? What are your ambient and inside case temperatures? Do you have any additional intake or out blowing fans?

I'm just curious to know if the SilenX PSU achieves it's extremely low dBA with a fan that hardly pushes any air at all, resulting in a really hot case.

regards,
Halcyon

it's really really really quiet...to the point it makes 5v panaflos irritating


Do you know what fan is being used with that power supply?

I'm going to buy a case fan soon, but if the fan used with this particular power supply is actually quieter than a panaflo, then maybe I should just use that other fan instead.

not really sure, just had a "SilenX" label on it. lemme email pete about it and get back to you on that *grin*


Yeah, this would probably be the quiestest active cooling available with a SilenX PSU and all SilenX fans. :D

The only counter problem to this, is probably the noise of the Hard disk will become super loud! even decoupled, boxed, foamed etc. :shock:

I don't think having the quiestest computer is going to help you score chicks. I think it'll impress the guys.

LOL all, very funny.

Maybe try dressing it up, aethestics seems to attract more attention than a silent rig. The problem with silence it's just that, it's not calling out for attention. A bit like life really.. :wink:

How about a review on the quietest cold cathode tubes? Recommend the ones that have no hum, highest power efficiency to keep those PSUs cool, best sound reaction to pulse to the beat of Barry's White and Manilow, etc. Heck, even review the thickest clear perspex (or does Lexan absorb more sound?) for quiet windows, find a site that makes and sells thickly padded "computer cozies" to hide that unsightly beige box until you can get those perfect m0dz, etc.

There's gotta be a silentpcreview.com tie-in somehow! www.date.com popups for advertizing, and they would have a section in the profile for how big, er, quiet your PC is...

Give me 10% royalties, and the business is yours!

I've seen some pretty weird stuff. I was inventing links for dating sites and was almost afraid to type in www.findyourmate.com in case I got a mailorder bride site or something. It turned out that www.date.com was a real place, so I used that instead. :)

LOL - If I would only spend as much time trying to get a date as I do trying to build a silent server...

If you want redneck girls then move to mississippi. Thats where I am, and needless to say intelligent guys seem to be a turn off for girls around here. Poor me :(
