I got the same problem!

Really high pitch coil whine on my Sonata II. It's been fine for months and just now recently the noise started. To further annoy me the system wont boot. Argh!

Gustavs_a I also have the 193p+. I'm very pleased with the picture quality. I work a lot with photos and color clarity and reproduction is very important to me. The 193p+ delivers in these respects in my opinion. If I had the money I'd probably upgrade to a EIZO. (http://www.eizo.com/products/lcd/S2...

There are a lot of P150s in Sweden. I've seen them at several shops in Stockholm as well as at various online retailers.

People in Sweden can get it here:

If you have a friend in Sweden maybe he/she could ship the case to you?

Good luck!

There is so much to be done here that its hard to tell where you should start. I'll give it shot. 1. Once the PSU is fixed you will need to swap your case fans and/or set them up with some kind of rpm adjustment. Zalman Fanmate could be a solution. 2. Your fans are currently mounted outside of your ...

Thanks!

It is also the solution that does the least permanent damage/changes to my case. If I'm not happy with it is easy to go back.

Now I gotta get to a hardware store and find some worthy rubberbands.

Thanks,

It seems the exhaust fan is a 120mm TriCool. But what about the front intake fans? Are they two 120mm or two 80mm?

With those harddrives you could probably stick more fans in without it affecting the noise level of your system. I might be a good idea to at least consider a Samsung Spinpoint harddrive for your system. If you are a websurfing/gaming kinda guy you wont gain much in speed from those drives. The sile...
