Re: Does SPCR seem way too obsessive compulsive about noise?

Where noise is a symptom of failure, to me at least, it is intolerable. I built a new pc recently, and on eof the two including case fans started whining horribly, as it was connected to the CPU fan header, it would not slow below a 1000RPM. I have a Gemin installed on an A8-3870, even with no fans,...
