low frequency tube traps

An idea, I wonder if it is possible to reduce the low frequency noise like they do in hifi by using tubes made of something like fiberglass. http://www.teresaudio.com/haven/traps/traps.html Ofcourse you have to make them smaller so they fit in the case but if it works that would be great, couse It's...

A question to all those pro's on airflow, can a put a 92mm nexus fan on the left side of the hdd to cool the hdd without messing up the airflow?

Observe, the "only" air-intake is in the front to the right of the hdd.

well, that heatsink and 120mm fan are on the CPU not the Motherboard itself. Enough jabbing, just think realistic, a motherboard simply can't have a powerconsumption 120W over all other motherboards out there without a REALLY big heatsink on the back or something. Besides there has to be some functi...

I say, if the motherboard drains anywhere near 150W well, the n you will nead a BIG heatsink or a 120mm fan @2000rpm, though I haven't seen a DFI board with neither.

And I have to warn for the CoolerMaster Case because i had to make some modifications, the airflow on an unmodified case is limited to a few small holes in the bottom of the front. http://www.thetechlounge.com/reviews/cooler_master_cavalier_3/...

For stability there shouldn't be any problems except that you will have to find a memory timing that is stable for your m/b and cpu, but that you will have to test yourself. Usually this will work on default but sometimes there can be some probs.
