Undervolting T'Bred-B CPUs with José Ángel

CPUs|Motherboards
This article by José Ángel details just how wonderfully "underclockable" certain AMD Athlon Thoroughbred XP cores are, and what that means for cooling and noise. Combined with the unlocked state of all the Thoroughbred cores we're aware of, these inexpensive CPUs make for an excellent basis for very quiet computers.

It features a "Guide to silent computing", where one can learn about silencing PSUs, CPU HSFs, etc, and a few hardware reviews. It has a forum, weblinks, download section... the kind of stuff you find in a Postnuke site.

Samsung ML-2150 Laser Printer

Audio|Video|Misc
The Samsung ML-2150 is the second printing device to be submitted for review, another substantial no-nonsense business machine. It's bit quieter than the Samsung multifunction reviewed a couple weeks ago; still not silent in idle, only in sleep. But it is a super-capable laser printer with automatic double sided printing. That makes the Samsung ML-2150 worthy of modding for silence! For US$400, it seems amazing.

Review: Arctic Cooling Super Silent 4 Pro TC

Cooling
Another cooler reviewed for the hot summer, this time a brand new thermally controlled HSF for P4-478 from Arctic Cooling. Inexpensive and effective, fine attention to details, great for those seeking simplicity and not cutting-edge performance.
