If you look at this: http://products.amd.com/us-en/desktop/SideBySide.aspx?opn=ADO4000IAA5DD&opn=ADH2350IAA5DD You can see the only major difference between the 2.1ghz 4000+ and the BE-2350 is the stock voltage. So, if I can undervolt the 4000+ to 1.25V @ 2.1ghz would it be fair to say I can achiev...

is it just me or is this written backwards? The CPU and the video card are the biggest power draws, the rest don't consume all that much. Here's what PSU draws from the wall (I am rounding up): At idle: 250W with 2A At load: 380W with 3.2A ////snipped/// But nagging doubts remained. And so, I starte...

about the optical drive - also remember, max speed is attained only on the outer track, so experiment with turning it down until u find a suitable compromise.
and read speed is also influenced by media quality, so experiment with different media to see how much is that spinning worth it :)

i for one don't know where everyone else managed to get their 7blade fans from, but the SUNON catalog lists only 5 blade models, i have the A2123 - HST and HSL and they bost have 5 blades, so your best chance is u will get 5 blades, if u don't ask the store in advance about the number of blades.

one more question... how do u connect the pot?
in series with the fan? and then add capacitors if u need to run lower?

don't think it's the case here, Xp-90 when mounted, has pipes parallel to the ground, so it doesn't matter wether i mount the motherboard upside down, i can invert the HS on the CPU and it wouldn't make a difference if it was mounted normally.
