Re: Some questions regarding the Silverstone TJ-08E

You have a few choices for fan replacement on the TJ08-E: These will give you a little extra clearance (a good thing in this case) This is the same form factor as the stock fan, but reportedly almost silent. There are a few others out there if you look. See this posting and related replies in the th...

Antec NSK2400 Power LED connector

I just picked up an NSK2400 case and have just started the motherboard, etc., install. Maybe I'm blind, but I'm not seeing the POWER LED connector wire (which I assume has a 3-pin female socket to match my motherboard).

Quiet media server

Signal64: I'm interested in how your 3u/4u project is turning out. I've been going back and forth on whether to set up separate media server and NAS boxes, and feel like I don't gain much that way, since I'll need to cool (and quiet) two boxes instead of one, and so now I'm leaning in the direction ...

Re: What's you opinion on this C2D system?

Due to budget, I'm going to use the built in graphics card, but like to move off of it. Any one have recommendation on a good fanless card? I'm also looking at putting together a system soon, and because I'll probably move to Vista sometime next year, I'm inclined to save money on the GPU and use t...
