I'm about to undertake a mod-a-thon with my PC. It's made too much noise for too long now.
I'm thinking of gettin the Seasonic and replacing the fan with a a 80 mm 8412 NGL Pabst fan, and also having another fan blowing air into the psu, and one at the front of the case (all same 8412NGLs). The theory here being that they all blow air into and out of the psu, and having them at 5V to reduce noise since i have a few of them. Finally I'll stick a Zalman flower cooler on the Athlon 1.4ghz.
This all sounds well and nice, but is this a good strategy? Also is the mentioned fan alright to put in the psu? Or is the Panaflo quieter/less clicky. Also I'll have 4 fans (inc psu+cpu) in the system. Is this OK or an overkill? How/where should i mount the fan which will blow air into the psu? Finally any better/quieter cpu coolers than the Zalman (i wont overclock)?
Quite a few questions I know, but best to get it right i think
