Will you be doing a review of the new Enermax Modu87+ PSU? It looks really interesting. http://www.anandtech.com/casecoolingpsu ... i=3723&p=1

Cheers!

I think the Arctic Cooling Fusion PSUs would make a fine addition to the PSU line if reviewed. It has received several good grades in reviews and is supposed to be quiet.
In a case like Solo this would make an awesome PSU if it's quiet enough for us.

It's fanless, has a notebook drive. Not much to assess for noise, really. Even if it is a noisy notebook drive, when you have music or TV playing,you won't hear a thing. Then the main question is mainly whether there is audible electronic noise at a reasonable distance (since it will mostly be under/near the TV, usually at least 1.5m away), and whether any components run too hot under normal conditions.

Methinks if the product appeals, fits your needs/wants and budget, go for it. The risk for a noise-averse buyer seems pretty low. Then you can come back and tell us all about it in a user review.

How about a Fractal Design Define XL review with lots and lots of hdds (6+) to test its build and noise qualities?

Any chance of a review on either the 3GB AMD Radeon HD7950 Sapphire Overclocked Edition or Powercolor PCS+ cards? Reviews show these cards having an excellent performance/cooling/noise ratio.

Any chance of looking at new Zotac AD04?

Looks perfect as a low power HTPC but it does have a fan so really interested to find out noise levels when playing 1080p video - assume using an SSD rather than normal HD (I would probably stream from my NAS which is in basement)

PowerColor has just released a passive 7750 card. Would be interesting to see a contrast to the Sapphire Ultimate (already reviewed), which was previously the only passive 7750.

Hej SPCR staff, how about just an update of the main list since last update was 2008?

Appreciate all your efforts.

Has there been any reviews concerning any dampening foam? Specifically, the SilverStone SF01?

I have used that on my TJ08B-E. Its thin but easy to apply. I dont really think it makes much of a difference thou. Most important part is to make sure to eliminate all form of vibration first.

Thanks for the information. Maybe I'll pick a pack up when I have some extra money to spare.
