It would be cool, if SPCR could do a review on the new Core Duo iMacs. On paper they look really nice and the price isn't bad. I'm just wondering how quiet they are from the box. They look like a good alternative for a second (silent?) hassle free computer.

Greetings,

In the hour and half or so that I spent with my brother's new iMac CoreDuo -- it is very quiet, and very cool running (though we were not stressing it), and even the CD/DVD/RW drive was pretty muted.

The entire world buys the new iMacs because they're so quiet. Thermalright goes out of business. EAR goes out of business. No more quiet upgrades, ever. So no need to know how to upgrade. SPCR closes shop. :(

That's what too much Super Bowl condiments will do to you. :D

Hello!
This is my first post in this forum.

Can you add this fan to the review list?
Scythe S-FLEX™ 120mm, 800 rpm version (S-FLEX SFF21D)

m3/h:56
cfm:33.5
dBa:8.7

Im no expert, but that looks very silent to me, can it be true?

The A8N32-SLI Deluxe is reviewed (thanks!), will the Premium follow (soon-ish)? The difference in power consumption is noted, but I'd still like to see the review of the Premium if possible :)

Especially in terms of feature set (I know its SPCR - but I guess both motherboard are relatively silent). I have a hard time finding any site reviewing both motherboards...

This thread hasn't been alive long enough to make an estimation of the general review/update pace. And different reviews take differently long time I suppose, so there is no "usually".

Ok thanks for answering, lets say I want to the results of the 7th review on the list, are we talking about 1 months or maybe 6 months? :?

Depends what it is. We fasttrack or delay things based on our interest, problems that crop up, timing, etc. In other words, it'll be up when it's up (if it's up). Reread the disclaimer in the first post. We make no promises.

I guess you're waiting for the Antec SP2-500 as well, eh? Yeah, I'm being patient as well. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long and a review will be up pretty soon. Until then... reading up on Formula 1 :lol:

Just a reminder,
Zalman TNN300 - complete fanless PC enclosure/PSU/cooling system
needs to be taken off the list.

Just wondering. There is a review of the Intel Prescott stock cooler. How about a similar one for the AMD Heatpipe cooler?

I just bought an Opteron, and I am wondering how much I would gain from going with a Zalman 9500/Scythe Ninja.

(This stock cooler is by far more quiet than my old socket A cooler)

Would be nice compared with the ABIT AT8 32X. Passive cooled and 6 BIOS/PWM controlled fan headers... :wink:

Mike,

IMO, a lot of the noise seems to come from the 12x DVD drive. When it spools up full song, you definitely notice it's presence. I was thinking that one could deaden all of drive's mounting points to the case chassis with some rubber grommets or some such thing. Maybe some brown bread on the DVD housing itself would help as well?

Another interesting idea that I saw someone mention was to put the 360 guts into a PC case. Some guy actually modded a PC power supply to work with his 360 after he fried his 360 power supply:

http://www.hackaday.com/entry/1234000740073473/

Anyway, the 360 looks ripe for some cooling mods. I'm looking forward to a great article.

[Edit - nevermind - it is all in "VGA card power dissipation" in the "Cool & Quiet VGA" forum.]

Cooling, motherboard VRMs, efficiency & power consumption - this is more important than you might think, especially for higher power CPUs

Quiet & fanless gaming vidcards from Asus, Gigabyte, etc

Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe - high end passively cooled 939 board
Asus EAX1600XT - passive vid card

Newisys NA-1400 - 4-HDD Network attached storage


Looking forward to all of these :D
