Will the black spcr version become available in europe (more specifically, Scandinavia)?

I might just put my next system in a 3000b until a black p180 gets available, because although the alu version will have the same aucustic advantages, it just looks a bit fridge tacky.

Whoever wrote about shg.biz selling S12-430 might be dissappointed. I emailed shg.dk regarding s12-430 and got this response: Vi stopper nok helt med salget af Seasonic strømforsyningerne, da vi simpelthen ikke kan sælge nok i forhold til, hvor mange vi hele tiden skal tage hjem. Så med mindre, at d...

The "announcement" has been there since april 28th or so, but granted, quite hidden on the bottom of the page.

Heh sorry for being a bit off-topic but I found this quite funny =)

I googled for stretch magic on Danish websites and found http://www.lingerieshop.dk/38/41 which sells some "Magic Penis Ring-Stretch" hehe... Dunno how suitable it would be for anti-vibration. Gotta love google =)

Ilh: Never really thought about whether the increased alu mass would create more resonanse, but as long as the plates are fairly thick so they cant vibrate, and kept really tight to the hdd (by screws and elastic bands) I don't think it's a problem. My 7200.7 pata is pretty quiet in this setup. A li...

The trend is that we don't like loud components here at SPCR. We don't care what they're constructed from or what technology they're using, we just don't like noise. See where I'm coming from? I think that's the way most pc enthusiasts feel. We want the best and couldn't care less what technology h...

I really miss an "Advanced Cable Management System" similar to Antec Neopower 480.
When you only need to power the motherboard, a single harddrive and a single optical drive, like 80% of the power cables just get tucked away somewhere in the case.

Storage without moving parts?

I've just installed a new system for a friend, and although the 7200.7 he wanted isnt that loud it still vibrates a lot. As my friend doesn't have internet I had brought my pendrive along for drivers and stuff. Then I started wondering... The pendrive is totally silent (afaik) with its flashram, so ...

Especially http://www.asetek.com/main/page.asp?sideid=628 looks interesting from a silent computing pov.

And it doesn't hurt either that asetek is a Danish company which should make their products cheaper for me personally :>

I've read the psu guide and searched the forums but haven't been able to figure out whether earth (ground for you yanks) is that important? btw considered placing the question in the newbie forum, but then I thought the psu freaks would probably be the best to ask.

Apparantly he had had an msi board before and he was very happy with it so he wanted another msi no matter what.

Anyways thanks for the input, I hope his sample doesnt have the heatsink problems.

The PWR and HDD LEDs are polarity-sensitive so flip the connectors over and try again. Got the hdd working (never knew they were +- sensitive so I must have gotten lucky with my previous comps :D ), but the pwr is too wide to fit.

Mini review: Installation went pretty easy, apart from when I had to remove the cpu heat sink to get the psu fitted, that steel crossbar might help with stability but it really gets in the way if you don't think ahead.

I've ordered it and will probably get it monday. Do you think I can run my system with a single rear fan if I tape over all the small holes in the front so that the airflow will get concentrated over my harddrive(s) at the bottom of the case?
