Comment on Review of P183

Mike and Lawrence, I'm not sure whether my recollection is right, but didn't you at one stage test each case with the spcr reference Nexus fans? I don't have a problem with the review but given the majority of people who buy this case and who look at this site will replace the Tri-Cools as their fir...

I think you've reached a point of diminshing returns

I'm very impressed by the scientific way you've managed to find and eliminate sources of noise contamination. I know you are a perfectionist, but I think you have probably done all you can to easily lower the ambient noise. Its time to start to use the chamber and prosper through your handiwork :win...

That would assume that I have bought from Nintek :wink:

So, any updates from the original poster? How easy is it to setup a quiet pc business in Brisbane and what would the postage be to the rest of Oz?

By all means join the club, but you have to compete with PC Case Gear in Melbourne and Nintek in Perth (they have the monopoly on Noctua so far).

Thermalright Sl-97a on AM2 - will it cool a X2 5600+?

I was in the same position as you, but made the decision to buy the Sl-97a. The fact that you can use it on 939 and AM2 (with a new socket guide available from Thermalright) made it easier to handle the high cost.
