This is the inside of my case (not my picture though)...
I just received this morning the Fortron 300FPS modified with the Verax fan that Tom's Hardware has been raving about.
I am using my PC strictly for video playback (DVD's AVI's and Tape or satellite broadcast via a Falcon capture card and using Dscaler).
For now, 1Ghz is really enough for that purpose. I am thinking of upgrading to a 2.4Ghz Pentium IV, but first I want to see how silent I can make my current PC (Asus P3BF board and Pentium III 1Ghz processor Slot 1)
At the back of the case, there are two openings for fans (I will purchase two panaflo's for that, running at the minimum speed necessary to keep the case cool.
The Fortron PSU will also (I imagine) be sucking air off the CPU.
To cool one of the heatsink posted by quokked (what about the Alpha...) I was thinking of a less noisy solution than the two fans blowing on the heatsink while screwed on it....
What about using a panaflo running above the cpu&heatsink suspended using a Zalman Fan Bracket.
I was thinking of going for a 90mm one, to get as much air on the heatsink as possible...
Would it work?
Anyone tried this?
