You can use a fanmate from Zalman. That way you can easily control the voltage and adjust fan speed. If you have more than one fan, you can buy a multi-channel fan controller such as the ZM-MFC1.

Don't know about the Globe but the Nexus fan is very quiet (I have one which now replace the stock Sonata fan). At 12V, it's already quiet... But look carefully if you need a big airflow... As Teknerd said, take a look at the recommanded list on SPCR but don't search for a Globe 120mm, it's not list...

So I guess I'll play with my new toys this Christmas! :D Hey, by the way... I'm planning to put the fanless PSU...

If you want to avoid heat buildup inside the case, you can put the fanless PSU outside the case. That's what I'm planning to do when my Phantom will be shipped. Combine that with watercooling and you have a very (but still expensive) system.

Nexus 92mm... I ordered a Thermaltake SilentTower for one of my friends and a Nexus 92mm to replace their *noisy* 92mm fan (no way it's only 22dbA!). I usually don't like Thermaltake but since he have a Socket A motherboard, I was unable to find a fanless solution. Anyways, with the Nexus, there's n...

With a single fan (exhaust?) Yes, I just replaced the one that come with the Sonata. heck, why cant you put a GPU block on your graphics card and let the reserator do the work? I already have a GPU block on the Radeon X800XT! No way to cool this card using a passive solution! Only the northbridge i...

Is Acoustipack really safe?

Hi there! I'm planning to put AcoustiPack pre-cut kit in my Antec Sonata... The stock fan was replaced by a Nexus 120mm fan and I have a spare one in case I need to increase intake airflow... The power supply is gone and in the next days, I'll receive a brand new Phantom which I plan to put outside ...

Are you talking about "AcoustiPacks" from Acousti Products. They make standard, deluxe and pre-cut sound-dampering kits that fits inside your casing. If that's what you're looking at, follow this link to find out where you can get it in UK. There is also a review on SPCR . Sorry if I misunderstood y...

Thanks Rusty!... I was a bit confused first... It's my first try with watercooling and I really don't want to mess things up... Now I just have one last question: Should I use one of both of the products at the same time (waterwetter and Hydrx) or do I just put the waterwetter in and wait to see if ...

The best article I've read on LCD panel technology (and I've read pretty much everything the tech enthusiast sites have published) is this one at X-bit labs I often check at Anandtech, X-Bits labs and Hardware.fr for great articles and reviews about LCDs, but I missed this one...

You're going to have a very quiet system appart from the graphics card The graphic card will be cooled by the gpu waterblock from Zalman so the only real noise will come from the Nexus Fan...
