Im using an HR-01+ in my system on my E6600 passively. I'm using one case fan for my entire case. I have one fan (stock) on my video card and the fan in my PSU at the bottom of the case and thats it. Here's a picture for reference. http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c39/extreme4377/pc/Picture1004.jpg

Wow, and I always thought the warnings from the manufacturer's were just to cover their asses and to prevent the newer user's from messing anything up. Guess I was wrong. It sounds like replacing my PSU all together is my safest route. I was thinking something along the lines of a Corsair HX520 or 6...

Replacing fan in PC P&C 610W PSU

Has anyone replaced the fan in the PC Power and Cooling 610W PSU? I've had this PSU for roughly 1.5 years and the fan has always been bothersome. I have a few questions. 1. Has anyone had success replacing the 80mm fan inside with a different one? Perhaps a Nexus 80mm fan? 2. Does anyone know what t...

Ya, I always have used the filter. It works well but only filters air from the front vents, not the bottom. I now have my case sitting flush against the carpet so the bottom vent thats unfiltered shouldnt be allowing air in. I plan on stopping by staples today to get some compressed air and clean ev...

Quiet SLK3700AMB

I know there are many other quiet/silent 3700 rigs out there but I figured Id post mine anyways. Ive spent a good amount of time wiring the system getting everything out of the way of the airflow. The system is pretty much wireless looking and looks very clean. Here are a few shots of the case inter...

Well Ive got my 7000AlCu running at 2000 or 2100RPM all the time. My front fan is 5V and my rear is 12V but still very quiet. I dont want to be so extreme as to suspend my HDD nor to replace it as speed is very important to me.

thanks guys. Im looking at getting some Nexus 120MM fans, fan isolaters, and maybe nexus damptek but right now, my PC is damn near silent. Dropping another 100 bucks on those items to lower my sound level by a few dB's might not be worth it IMO

Best, yet silent HSF for 6800GT

Im looking to replace my koolance with some silent fans but I still want to overclock my 6800GT to 400/1100(Ultra speeds). Is the NV5 Silencer truly silent? If not, what else should I consider? Thanks

my NB and OTES fans are running at minimal speeds so they dont make much noise. As for the front fan, I need it to keep my raptor HDD cool. I dont want it to over heat. I use the floppy for when I install Windows...I need RAID drivers that are on a floppy disk. Thanks for the feedback :)
