Re: Xigmatec "Gaia" SD1283

Retail price is here 29€'s vs. 57€ Xigmatek's Netarpark or Balder or 55€'s of Xigmatek Thors Hammer. The mounting system looks very nice indeed, Xigmatek has improved that. I got HDT-S1...

Thanks for this. I should try this when I can. 30% fan is pretty good in my Evga 460 SC but it always can be quieter.

Yeah, Arctic cooling S1 is the answer. If you don't have space, you need to get passive heatsink that can be snadwitched.

Eventually truth seems to be as subjective as is person who see's things. Facts are far less subjective. It is shame that modern media game is more about versions of truth's that actual, objectively announced news that are based on cold hard facts.

Antec's 200mm big boy is impressive in terms of silence. In vertical position at low position its near inaudiable, does not generate any vibration and you only hear light ticking few inch away from the hub. They are pricey but should be quite well available alone or with the cases.
