Re: Fan Roundup #6: Scythe, Noiseblocker, Antec, Nexus, Ther

Finally I get my fan roundup! Best 100 bucks I ever spent!

Didn't really get an answer to the question if 140mm is "worth it" tho. Maybe I'll have to donate some more.

Donate: 120 & 140mm fan round-up

Hi Mike! Sent you some money. Hopefully we can see some new fans in the future. One thing I would really want answered is if its better to use a 140mm fan, instead of a 120mm one. People say it has been proven that using a 140mm fan is of no use. I just don't trust anyone but you for this type of in...

Re: Serenity i7 Sandy Bridge PC, SPCR Edition, by Puget Comp

Anyone over in the US feel like ordering one of those fan covers for me, and then send it to Sweden?

Puget doesn't want to ship internationally and I would really like to have one of those covers.

For even quicker reference. You could always list if its a tower or a cube. I suppose one would easily see that on the dimensions... but maybe for some it would be nice.

Nice list. But I would list the dimensions in the same format.

So its always for example W * H * D

I personally like the case I have now, Lan-Gear's mITX( my build )case, but I was considering the SG-07. In the end, the Lan-Gear is cheaper even if it doesn't come with a PSU. Looks interesting... but the brand's products look difficult to buy. Not exactly well distributed. Well that case is only ...

Mike: How popular is SPCR with the producers of cases, fans etc...? They should pay you for testing. This portion is a bad idea, as it would give the appearance of favorable reviews being bought.

I think its a great product. I like how many corporations build niche products like this nowadays instead of just going the "safe" way...

The only sad part is probably that many of these workaround products shouldnt have been needed in the first place.

You could always try to exchange some of those drives for new larger ones. Or maybe switch to SSDs that take up a lot less space.

The Qmicra was build with watercooling in mind. This one will rely on aircooling. Im thinking the temps might be a bit high but hopefully we will see some reviews soon.

A person that buys that board probably wants a good GFX-card and those wont fit in any good itx-chassis. Also, you probably want a good cooler for the CPU. And you cant fit a quiet one either...

It does make you think about a DIY-chassi tho.
