Five fans? Five 1450 rpm fans?

Hard drive louder?

What is going on in this place?
Yes, five Scythe gentle Typhoon 1.450rpm and (+) one 220cm.
For the air intake, that is. :D :D

The case is very big, you know. :P :P

The most silent and in the same time performing 12V 120mm fan is Scythe Silent Typhoon 1.450rpm. I have 5 of them in my case and the most loud thing was the clicking of an hard drive (that was replaced with Intel SSD). The fan is so silent you will hear only a very gentle airflow. If you wish to shi...

thejamppa,
with 12 LED fans, it's possible to present the case on Champs-Elysees for New Year!!
And the sound! the Brits would salute to a Concord airplane, without thinking twice (that it was taken out of service).

I really love that PC case!!! The most important thing in a silent PC is the PSU-power supply. GPU-graphic card makes a lot of noise when you're playing games, but that is not something that would bother that much. I must say however, that one thing is how loud, another is when the sound emitted is ...

The cooling performance of the motherboard is worrisome. Custom PC magazine has completely shredded the case what cooling goes.

Silverstone has on its website a small image of the new Fortress02 and the writing CES above it. The case is apparently going Vegas.

Okay. I think that you're throwing away some serious money here.

I second the Asus Xonar advice from the member above.

I would go for, at least, 650W PSU.
Not to mention, that the PSU will be a LOT quieter if not under full load and will also last and perform longer.

Just to steer the thread away from becoming an Intel love-fest, Anand has the following to say: Those who spent over $600 on Intel's first SSD deserve to be taken care of but instead they get no TRIM support and no SSD Optimizer.

It is not my analysis; it's Intel's.

Considering that Intel has warned not to play with the update till further notice, Intel is not going to recognize the warranty if something goes wrong.
So, better not to be tempted.

The problem was apparently in the upgrade tool (version 1.3) when combined with Windows 7 64 bit and not in the 02HA firmware itself.

Anyway, Intel has reacted at once an clearly, not as others, with subterfuges.

I also decided for an Intel SSD, however I received the drive at a later time.

Intel SSDs are the best choice at the moment.

Maybe you could wait till January and buy one GT300; I'm afraid however that the price will be some 400 euro.

If you buy a SSD than Intel. Samsung uses "looks like TRIM"function. The controller uses NTFS as a map for free areas when the drive is not in use.
