SLK3000B

I bought an "b-stock" SLK3000B and, to this day, can't find anything wrong with it. It was around $20 so I took a chance. How much are they asking for a P180?

My order got cancelled as well. I was looking forward to playing with a quiet small system. Mwave is usually pretty cool. No clue as to what happened this time. didn't need another PC anyway. Just wanted a new toy.

individual

People's Pcs are as individual as they are. I should have mentioned that the Sunbeam works perfectly, so far, with the Globe 120mm (another SPCR recommendation) I got from Silencio. I thought the Sunbeams changed voltage and didn't use PWM. Anyway they work sweet with the globes but I can't speak ab...

SPCR newbie

I'm no silence expert but SPCR has affected my purchase decisions more positively then any other web source. I searched for years for the perfect controller and finally settled on the Sunbeam rheobus. I recently installed three of them and was impressed with their quality and heavy duty build. Defin...

caulk!

I just attached my 120mm globes with four rubber "screws" and put a bead of DAP silicone rubber sealant (high end caulk) around the fan frame then applied gentle pressure with two peices of wood and a c-clamp overnight. I was pretty impressed with the results. It seems like no fan vibration at all. ...

Remove Globe 120mm sensor?

I bought some globe 120mm fans from Silencio and was wondering how to remove the thermal sensor so I could get the full RPM range of the fan when necessary. I've got the on a Sunbeam rheobus and they're very quiet but I'd like to know how to acheive their full speed whenI need it. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your very specific details. Such information is hard to come by. I guess I'll keep on looking. I'd like a smothe "automatic" hardware solution without spending $70 . Finding a "perfect" peice of hardware is often difficult if not impossible.
