  1. how "loud" are the fans? how would you rate the chances of this case going unnoticed in a living room? not very high I suppose?
  2. it's on the first page... Software config: # OS: Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista SP1 64-bit # NVIDIA Drivers: Forceware 177.41 # ATI Drivers: Catalyst 8.8 (8.52.2)
  3. yes it is. as you don't pay for the bandwidth you used to read their site since you blocked the ads which generated the revenue to pay the bandwidth
  4. yes there will be a height different, if you use a heatsink which has screws and springs to mount you're fine; if you have one which uses the default A64 bracket for mounting you're not.
  5. letting your PC "sit in the BIOS" does not give idle temps FYI, no full load temps either. but it does use more cpu cycles than "OS idle" - and there for: not comparable. the BIOS does not have a "halt" state, so temps in the BIOS will be higher

  7. the only reason it beats the other in the X-Bit labs test is because different fans were used - pretty much screws up their whole test data - and they don't mention noise. other reviews place the Tuniq on the same level as the rest, sometimes a degree higher/lower , I've compiled a small table with different sites' results here: http://www.madshrimps.be/forums/showthread...highlight=Tuniq
  8. you can use that one for sure, hook it up to a fan controller and you can have the best of both worlds
  9. 2600rpm is about twice the speed of the Papst fan I used (1200rpm) so yes, that fan is loud at 12V
  10. Fanwise, that size (80mm) I would not know, have not delved into that area of testing yet, sorry. Concerning the memory fans, they are $12 incl shipping at http://koolsolutions.net/products.htm
  11. keep your hands up dude, there are pleny of HSF which perform on par with TR products, that doesn't make them bad, it makes them all good. stating that TR is "the best" --- "hands down" --- shows a lack of understanding :dog:
  12. SI-120 > XP-120 inside a case. about the Zalman: check the link I posted:)

  14. hello, thank you for your answer, unfortunately shipping the BIOS around is no option for me as I need to a working board now for finish testing. so a BIOS corrupting itself all by itself like that happens often on DFI NFII boards? :/
