60mm to 80mm Fan Adapter

I'm trying to quiet my new DirecTV Tivo recorder. It is the new series 2 design Philips DSR7000 for those who care. It uses a single 60mm fan on the back panel to exhaust the hot air. I have the Tivo in my bedroom and the fan noise is quite noticeable. I want to quiet it down. One idea I had was to ...

What you want is very specifically Wiss RED M-1R & GREEN M-2R snips. These are very high quality tin snips, and they are offset (just the right amount) to allow you to appoach a cut from whatever side you need, or cut around corners. The blades are extremely hard molybdenum steel, which thinks noth...

I'm confused by the different types and sizes of tin snips. What are "aviation" snips? Will they work well on most case steel? How long of a handle would I need?

I saw somewhere...can't remember where for the life of me, maybe on the Sudhian forums...Antec's new HTPC case.

Confirmation of power supply ratings

This article on overclockers.com measured the current draw used by a fully equipped system. It is one more bit of evidence that selling 400 W and 500 W power supplies for home computers is just a marketing ploy. A good quality 300 W system is fine for most home systems. http://www.overclockers.com/a...
