I would say, get the MCP350 or 355. A D5 is pretty much overkill because the tubing of the reserator is too small for the flow the D5 can generate. MCP350 will probably need somekind of top because the inlet of the original pump is on the side. You'lll need a inlet on the top (judging from google im...

Hehe, thanks for your opinion! The problem here is that the info in the web looks like wrong. They state the case is 133 mm high, but don't say whether it is counting the feet on. On other sites, they state it is 150mm, and hence my doubt :) Mm, i go and do some research ;) Finding some people with...

I would say get the noctua cooler. Both are good performers, the Noctua is just a little more silent (and you get 2 fans with it so u can use the fans in a push-pull combo or use one fan as exhaust. Also the Asus GT240 is what i would get. Those gpu fans are tiny and whiny so. When you have a well-v...

Re: Tricools and controllers

It is (so you can run tricools on high with a 3pin to molex cable on a controller so the internal resistor wont work). But some controllers need a RPM signal (like Scyte's Kaze whatever controller). According to Antec's site, the tricools do RPM reporting: http://store.antec.com/Product/cooling-tri...

The only thing i can think about is your gpu (im not a audio producer). Why choose for a 4350 if you can get a 5xxx card. That card has DX11 and more and a cheap one is definately enough for you.

Re: HDD loudest part in system

I can mount it in rubbers but i dont want to because i go to lans and during transport i dont want falling drives. There is a secure way to do this if you are concerned about the HDD slipping out of the elastic during transport. - Tie off four elastic bands in the HDD cage. - Get a large cable tie ...

Hmm, do you have any experience? Because my hdd cage still vibrates a little bit. Does your cage vibrate?

Because i've bought a quiet drive (WD6400AAKS) and its not silent at all (i can hear it 5 metres away from the pc).

HDD loudest part in system

Ok thats a good thing. But i think the drive is resonating.

Case is a P180 mini and i thought those rubber mounting grommets were against the resonating. Is it possible to fix it?

You cant control tricools because they already have a fanspeed controller. Aren't the tricools' control just a variable resistor? So that you could leave them on high speed, and do voltage control separately? In any case, I use a Scythe Kaze Master, am quite happy with it: http://www.newegg.com/Pro...

Well, my PC is darn quiet now. But i want to make it more quiet. The weird thing is that my HDD is mounted in a antec HDD cage with those rubbers and well. I think that that makes the noise. Because when i stop all fans the sound of my pc doesnt change. So its the HDD (i dont have more moving parts)...

Diy i guess.
