My WDC 2500KS is according to the sensor also pretty hot. It is cooled by an Antec TriCool at low which is right in front of the disk and creates a pretty decent airflow. According to the sensor it is 42C - my other disk (older IBM 180 Gb) is ten degrees cooler: 32C. If I touch the disks they are (a...

I have question for those who have built a system using the P150. Do you use only one 92mm fan mount or both? I'm curious as to which configuration would be better. I don't need absolute silence and would like to keep the hard drives as cool as possible without making too much noise. I'm going to g...

I've installed a single 92mm Antec Tricool in the front of the P150 to cool my single drive. Otherwise it was getting very hot ~45-50 degrees. The only other fan blowing air out was the 120 mm Antec Tricool at the back, and my 6600 GT is also providing a fair deal of heat and not getting rid of it :)

And, are you serious that your AMD retail fan is LOUD with Cool 'n Quiet + Q-fan? Mine is almost dead silent at 1200 RPM. Are you sure Q-fan is working? You can also force it to work at a lower speed by raising the Q-fan target temperature in the BIOS. Yes mine was loud but I must admit that I've s...

I think the 250ks is very loud, and makes that ennoying wine sound. Thanks I also have a WDC2500KS mounted in the HDD suspension cables in the Antec P150. Mine is very quiet in this setup. I have a 2,5" 5400 rpm WDC in a USB 2 case, which is way louder. Even the 2,5" Hitachi 4200 rpm in my HP lapto...

Nice system! :) Regarding the Asus A8N5X, I've used a Zalman Fanmate to lower the chipset fan to about 50% of the initial speed, and this has made it much more silent. I can still hear a very faint whine if I open the case, so I've thought of replacing the fan with a Zalman passive chipset cooler. Y...

I know.. that damn floppy is one ugly mofo.. i'm actually thinking of getting rid of it altogether. I'm not sure I want to buy a can of white vinyl dye just for the floppy.. what are the chances I'll use it again? I actually thought GebissetDK's setup looks pretty hot :) I want that silver lamp! I ...

Re: Antec P150

Hi everyone, The first thing I'm going to do is get a P150 case, just concerned at exactly how silent is silent when it comes to the PSU?
