I am building my next PC this June. I am too old to have a glowing case with, LED fans, cold-cathode lights, and any other rubbish that doesn’t help my machine run the newest games fast. More importantly, I’m going to output this PC to my Home Theater system. Therefore, I am planning on building a computer that is completely quiet (without the use of water-cooling). So far, my Core i7 920 will be cooled with the Thermalright IFX-14 (thermalright.com/new_a_page/product_page/cpu/ifx-14_intel_bp/product_cpu_cooler_ifx-14-intel.html ). This heat sink will be equipped with one Scythe 120mm fan (scythe-usa.com/product/acc/002/sflex_detail.html ). I also plan on replacing all other 120mm case fans with the Scythe 120mm due to their performance and resounding reviews on being so quiet. I’m putting all of this gear in an Antec P182 case (antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=NQ== ). Now that you know my direction, here are my questions (it’s a list): Has anyone in OT community every suspended their hard drives from bungees? (silentpcreview.com/article109-page1.html ) The idea here is that you hard drive can’t vibrate your case when seeking or writing information to the disks. This link is the best looking set up ( silentpcreview.com/article8-page2.html ). I’ve also read a lot of reviews saying grommets are useless and make the HD fit super tight in most PC cases. I’m looking into getting a GeForce 285 GTX; however, can anyone here recommend their particular manufacturer for being quiet and full of performance? Obviously I don’t need to grab an OC version here, since the added heat is sure to speed its fan up for an additional 1-2FPS. I will definitely get a modular power supply, any recommendations out there for an 80mm or 120mm cooled modular power supply for performance and very low noise? So far, I’m thinking the modular Antec Signature TruPower. It’s also possible I’ll SLI two 285’s down the road for a performance upgrade, so ample power has to be there for major demands. Sound dampened computer case? I have been looking into using this kit: (acousticpc.com/acousti_products_apu_acoustipack_ultimate_pc_sound_proofing_kit.html ) in order to reduce noise from escaping the inside of the case. I’ve read reviews that prove it increases CPU temp in some situations, and lowers CPU temperature for others. Has anyone had any experience with a kit similar, if not the same kit? Lastly, to reduce noise transfer from the fans to the case, I found these (acousticpc.com/acoustiproducts_black_silicone_fan_mounts.html ). They are a way of suspending the fans without the use of screws. What I was hoping for is ideas from the OT on what works. Please post links, or pictures, or articles relevant to quiet PC modifications. Let’s be honest, if I’m watching a movie off my PC to my home theater, the last thing my wife and I want to hear is the whirl of the fans, or the hard drive accessing data. Thanks OT!
