Just waiting for your results with your Megahalems + SlipStream 1200 as in a few weeks this can also be my config in the new system I'm going to build (Core i7 920 + Ati HD5850).

Fans setup for a P183?

Hi, I’m building a new system: Core i7 920 (moderately overclocked) cooled with a Prolimatech Megahalems, 6MB of RAM and an Ati HD5870 (or HD5850, I haven’t decided yet) mounted in a P183 (with Antec CP 850 power supply). I know that this system isn’t going to be silent, but I want it to be as...

Easiest Ati HD 4870 VRM to cool down?

Hi, I'm going to purchase an Ati HD 4870, but knowing that their VRM heats up like hell, I've found two different non-reference designs and I need to know which would be easier to cool down... First, you have this one, similar to default design but with 4+2 phases instead 3+2 phases: http://www.over...

So are you saying they stuck a fan on the T-Rad2? If so, how about the Accelero - any fan on that. If not, what a winner! Yep, the T-Rad beats it but the accelero is great for passive only (if that is the case).

Cheers

They've used the Turbo Module on the Accelero.

looks nice with the copper pipes :) 2 large fans seem like overkill... maybe it just performs better with medium airflow.. (poorly in low airflow ??) I wonder what the fin spacing is... The fan that doesn't cover the GPU seems to cover 45 fins (if I trust my non very good sight), so you could make ...

Scythe Musashi

It seems that there's a new VGA cooler in the japanese market, and it's from our beloved Scythe. Here's the official data from Scythe (in japanese): http://www.scythe.co.jp/cooler/musashi.html And here you have some pics: http://ascii.jp/elem/000/000/166/166880/sz2_c_640x480.jpg http://ascii.jp/elem...

And today BeQuiet! has launched news PSUs, the Straight Power from 350 to 700W, and they look quite good in power handling, but do anybody know how much silent are they?

Remember that you're free to buy from other EU-countries, prices might be also enough cheaper that you'll end up "winning" even after delivery costs... sometimes price difference can be quite huge, sometimes domestic prices are even cheaper.

From the (very few) mentions of BeQuiet! on SPCR, they seem to be a good brand who really do sell quiet, well-cooled PSU's. Are you sure you need 600W though? Well I'm planning a machine for Vista with a DX10 vga and I'd like a PSU that could handle SLI, and I also want it to be silent, because I h...

Basing to BeQuiet being European brand you live in Europe. You're right, I'm from Spain and here BeQuiet! is much easier to find than other brands (near 600W I've only found the "old" Seasonic S12 600W, Yesico SC560-AS12CF, Tagan TG580-U22, Tagan TG580-U15, Hiper HPU-4K580S and Enermax Noisetaker E...

BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 600 (+ new Straight Power line)

Hi to all,

this seems to be a really nice PSU, with lots of power and a silent performing, as you can see in reviews like this made by guru3D, but I haven't found a word about it here, is there something wrong with it that I don't know?

Thanks
