I would also like to know how the noiselevel is on those harddrives. I'm considering changing my WD 120GB and 200GB Seagate for one SATA 300GB.

Saw this at X-bit Labs. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/ati-powercons.html Part 1 details power consumption of ATI graphics cards, from 9600 to X800. Very detailed. Shows draw on 4 pin molex power connector and AGP slot, and individual power draw on each rail. D'oh! You were faster! ...

OK thanks for the reply. I've looked att the pictures on overclockers.com and measured them. I've concluded that I need 2,5-3cm clearence and it sounds like P160 has enough room. 2" is about 5cm i think. I would really like to know if there is enough clearence in a Super Lanboy or a Lian-Li V1000/11...

I've been thinking of getting one of these myself and then I want to be able to fit the new Thermalright XP-120. Wonderful guide btw. If I get the P160 I will definently have a few looks more in this ...

WC can certinaly be quiter than AC. If you have a large (read very heay) radiator for exampel a car radiator you wont need a fan on it. But then you wpould need a good pump.

With watercooling youwould even be able to use a Wcooled PSU. I dont know if they are good but there are some on the market..

The choice is quite limited in Europe. After going through a few PSUs I finally stoppped at Zalman. It is not totally silent but keeps very, very quiet. You know, the sound of air flowing ...

There is only 0.7dB difference between the TSP ultra silent and the zalman 400W in idle mode. I do not consider the zalman to be a silent psu so I do not think the TSP is silent enough :?

But please come with other suggestions... :?:

The best alternative yet seems to be http://www.blacknoise.de/shop/en_EN/pro ... elais.html it is a bit expensive but maybee they are worth the money. It is silent if the specs are correct and the 120mm fan should give it a good airflow.

Which SILENT psu to get in Europe?

Hi to you all this is my first post here! :D First of all I would like to thank you guys for the advice you've given to others from which I’ve learnt a lot. :D Now to my problem, my current psu is very loud and sounds almost as much as my TV with a reasonable volume... It hurts my ears while sitting...
