Re: SilverStone ST30NF / Etasis EFN-300 Fanless PSU Users Po

An update. Im still running my ST30NF, but its currently powering a passive HD4850, a C2D E4400, four 120mm fans and three SATA harddrives. My computer has been on almost 24/7 all year around for several years now, and everything id still working well. Im satisfied.

Im trying to figure out what kind of socket 775 heatsink that would be a good option Thermalright HR-02 .

I currently have an ancient SLK3700B case that I ripped and bent out several parts of.

I don't own an AXP-140, but it has a rather large fin surface and lots of heatpipes, so it should work pretty well with a 400mm fan/jet. (Ofcourse, that's just by looking, we'll need some extensive testing to find out how powerful it really is.) As for the molexes: that is correctly aligned. Alrigh...
