No. Why would they be "less reliable"? Becouse they reside on motherboard instead of plastic shell...!?

Re: Bulldozer – a funny review but appalling power efficienc

Power efficiency is worth exactly nothing without accompanied performance. Bulldozer should dig a deep hole and throw itself in it. AMD made an enormous mistake putting this thing out, maybe 4 years ago it would have a place in the world but today it already obsolete at the day it was launched. Sad ...

Re: Removal of heat spreader for better cooling performance?

I think a lot of things late at night, but lately I've been wondering: What if you removed the heat spreader on a modern CPU so that the die(s) made direct contact with the heatsink, just as we all used to do back in the good old days? There could be an issue of excess weight on the die, but with a...

Using the Akasa splitter I've managed to hook up 5 case fans to the CPU header. I use a simple 2-way splitter as well as an Arctic Cooling PWM fan to get everything hooked up. I think the power you get from one molex is plenty to power a whole bunch of fans...just daisy chain away!:) Unless anyone ...

I am not sure that it will be a top performer. It would not need a 2000RPM fan if itself performed very good.
There is no way that fan makes only 29DB of noise @ 2 000 RPM, maybe with some very "creative" way of measuring :lol:
