Re: New SPCR design & management

I was needless to say shocked when I decided to check SPCR today and see the redesign (which I enjoy). I also agree some sort of announcement on the main page would be good, but you're probably planning something. At lot was already said above, but I truly want to emphasize that SPCR helped sparked ...

quite interesting stuff, hopefully in a couple of years we can go back to having some 40mm fans that that would surpass the efficiency and noise reduction of today's 120mm fans ;)

you might, but I'd be worried about the HD draw on the 12v line, since the MB and CPU will most likely take most of 12v line, I could be wrong on this

I was under the impression that ATI with OSX = mouse tearing, at least with the 3rd-party Callisto drivers. Unless they fixed the problem.

if it software (bios too?) monitoring, they have been known to be unreliable. use a mutimeter to test the voltages separately, you'd probably would have found out by now or system instability would be a sign.

does the MB temp refer to the Northbridge or is it a different sensor?

try closing off the "ramped" section from the pci slots to VGA to prevent air from bypassing the VGA cooler.

the air restriction should not cause much of an effect, after all, your main components rely on the same side ducts.

I would almost want to say a dell :shock: course it matter's which model you get, but usually dell systems have two fans max (if everything is intergrated) where the CPU heatsink is ducted to the rear case fan, so perhaps replace that fan, undervolt it and away you go! though not sure about the PSU

why not go for Gigabyte's Slent pipeII 7600gt?

I've been eyeing it as part of a full system upgrade (to AM2) , it is only a bit more expensive, but probably worth it.

but the back to the orig. Q, mostly like yes. If it can cool my 9800pro then it should cool a 7600gt
