Re: Scared of heat in a fanless PSU

I have been using a XFX 460 w platinum fanless (rebranded seasonic) for over year now,, with a GTX960 Strix and a 4690K CPU. No problems so far, and I even shoved it all into a mITX case and put it into a poorly ventilated IKEA desk. So far my only noise is when my GPU is running on max, or my WD gr...

Re: SFF Options (Silent / Quiet but powerful)

I think I'm looking for quiet not silent from reading the definitions here. Those cases don't really grab me - it's going to be on display in a living room so has to be nice enough for the OH! Try the Fractal Design Node 304. Looks a bit like a mini frigde, but it has nice clean lines and surfaces....

Re: GTX 1080 Reviewed today om Tom's

Im really looking forward to see what Asus and MSI can do with the new tech. Especially the more "modest" 60-models and Pascal

Btw, I can imagine a lot of misunderstandings coming up when people start talking about 1080, unspecified :D

Re: Asus GeForce GTX 960 Strix OC Edition

Does anyone have a "chart" over ideal temps for this card? I am trying to achieve a balance between low noise and acceptable temps for my Strix 960, and yesterday i reached 94 degrees Celcius (i was experimenting with GPU Tweak while playing Dragon Age Inquisition set on High).

Re: [250D vs Node 304] airflow in a small, quiet workstation

I did a Node 304 build this summer, and my personal experience with it is very good. Mine is a gaming build, and if im playing GTA V or such the GPU (GTX 960 Strix) becomes noticable. The other hearable component is my HDD, which has become much quieter since i suspended it in elastic bands. Since y...

Re: Windows 10 causing Hardware noise?

I found the culprit, and it is rather embarrassing. It was hardware, but not any of my PC hardware. Instead it turned out to be the Power Saving Extention Chord...

Re: Asus GTX970 STRIX

hey,
Have anyone tried comparing the Asus GTX970 Strix to the Asus GTX970 mini?

I know it seems like an unfair fight due to the difference in coolers, but it seems like the mini got some very favorable reviews, and i have started wondering how much more noise it actually generates.

Windows 10 causing Hardware noise?

Hey ppl, I tried upgrading my newly buildt pc from win7 to 10 this weekend, and the first thing i noticed was that my pc now emits an occational mechanical tick.

Re: Help with Fractal Design Node 304 quiet gaming build

Hey Luca

Nope, not yet. I was planning on posting the promised pics this weekend.

As the most noise is the air rush from the fan going 100 % I might just tough it out until the time is ripe for upgrading.

Re: GPU maintainance - Articles & Advice?

You could perhaps remove the plastic shroud and the two stock fans, keep the heatsink and attach one or two 120mm fans (powered by the motherboard perhaps) using zip ties. Perhaps, if the fans were defect. Right now it seems like way too intrusive juryrigging. I think they just need a bit of oil, b...

I cannot post a pic without the sticker before tonight, but here is my GPU. GPU.png As I said, under the sticker there is just a plastic cap with no screw. The cap and the fans are one piece of plastic. And a link to explanation of the asus dustproof fan: http://www.bjorn3d.com/wp-content/uploads/20...

Search for how to lubricate sleeve bearing fans. I did. The problem is that all the guides assume there is a little cap under the sticker. Mine doesn't have that. The fan seems more like it is a clip on. That is why I asked for the specific model. Either the screws are on the backside of the fan, w...

Re: Asus GeForce GTX 960 Strix OC Edition

What exactly is the TI model compared to a non-TI?

Im not buying a new card tomorrow, so I will follow you advice and see what 950 brings to the table. But won't a x50 model be a downgrade compared to x60 or x70?
Or is it here the TI part plays in?

Yeah, im very satisfied with it :D

You are probably right with the HDD, it's the sound of it working when i start up the machine, so not general vibrations. It is somewhat louder than i would have expected, but since its mostly when booting it's not a problem.

It's fanless. They were pretty specific with the whole "grill must face up" part.

I am actually quite content with my solution, allthough it could look prettie...
