Indeed I am, however I have been massively halted on further work on that until my hectic situation is over. Currently I just suffered a harddrive catastrophe (RIP seagate barracuda) lost lots of data and finally got a temporary replacement working just minutes ago. Don't worry though, as a stroke o...

I like the idea of ducting cool air from outside directly at the hot spots of the case (low speed fans) but I do not think this outward air pressure would keep the psu cool with minimal vents as all the heat generated in the case doesn't just dissapear or stay cool to go through the psu, not to ment...

This new all copper heatsink by thermalright outperforms all other heatsinks on the market (including the alpha 8045, thermalright AX7 and even the swiftech mcx462). It uses a triple clip system and weighs around 400-500grams without fan I think. It takes 60, 70 or 80mm fans no problem and is availa...

I think the leadtek gf4 is the best choice for quiet operation combined with a fan much like yours dru, hovering over it. The reason is the leadtek cards have the biggest heatsinks and with the fan disabled and a fan over it I think it would provide good quiet cooling. As for the original poster who...

Probably not much <IMG SRC="modules/phpBB_14/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif"> Maybe tr...

In my testing every single panaflo I have used (either the 120mm L1A or the 80mm L1A) ALWAYS consistently starts at 5v. I don't know about less than 5v, but 5v and above I'm going to say it will start consistently. <br> <br>I've also used one 80mm powercooler fan at 5v and it starts consistently as ...
