Re: Does "Evacuate the heat" role for the PSU work?

Ultimately it's a question of the cooling efficiency of the PSU. You can't really make judgements on the best solution without knowing how much cooling/airflow the PSU actually needs. I'm not clue-y enough about the terms and numbers here to make a qualified statement, but here's what I'm thinking: ...

Re: Real silence - move your PC to another room!

Since this topic has been revived; There is another simple solution that hasn't been mentioned. It's just as valid as the solution presented here. Wear ear-plugs.

Re: Silent speakers

Good to hear Mike. Thanks for that. And thanks for the helpful review of them too! I'm amazed at how many top reviews they get.

EEEK! Is that a common problem or just a one off? Does anyone know?
Does it only happen when they're on? Only when they're off?

Re: Silent speakers

I've now read numerous reviews of the Audioengine A2. I give in :P These are what I'll be buying. No matter that there's only two stores in Aus that sell them. Both on the other side of the country to me.

Re: Silent speakers

Thanks for that frenchie. I'm not sure how I missed your thread when I was searching! The audioengine a2's sound like a good option. I'm having trouble sourcing them in Australia though. I'll keep looking. victorhortalives; I won't say money is no object, but I'm not strapped for cash either. My ori...

Re: Silent speakers

The power adapter cannot be removed from these speakers, so unfortunately I can't test that. I'm completely happy to replace them - I was planning to anyway as I'd like a better sound quality. The problem is that I'm not sure how to choose my replacements. I'd expect that a more expensive set of spe...

Silent speakers

Talking about speakers in a forum about silence does seem like an oxymoron, however there is a point to this thread. I have been reading this forum with great interest in the last few months. Over the last year or so I seem to have become particularly sensitive to the noise emanating from my pc. As ...

Re: Fractal Design Define Mini

I can't wait to see a full SPCR review of this case. It may be the case which makes me NOT buy the Silverstone FT02. I love the concepts of FT02, but the Define Mini is half the weight, and I really don't think I need a full ATX MB. Hopefully Fractal Design will be sending a demo case ... Speaking o...
