Shut that damned machine up !!

My machine dove my wife nuts. The noise was horrific, so I invested in a silent poersupply, silent case fan and silent processor fan.

All was well in the Bytes Back stately home until I changed my chip. The Silent processor fan wasn't good enough any more. So I thought, no problem, I'll get another. Except they dont do them for this chip but they do do this ...............

Has anybody used one of these, if so what are they like.

Thankyou :D

I wouldn't use it, you still need air moving for the fins to be truly effective, if your that worried about noise go to a watercooling setup

Thermaltake Volcano 7 is fairly quiet and very efficient.


Just let me know if you happen to have an Asus A7A266. You have to "goof" with it to get it to fit. All other boards are ok as far as I know.

Yes the thermtake is quiet, but it's not silent !! The problem is the wife suffers from me *whoops* tinnutus and fan noise drives her up the pole.. If I dont shut it up I'll be consigned to the south wing and you dont want to know what lurks down there :D

As for it will need air movement it comes with a silent fan which you mount above it.

How does the water get round, I assume it uses a oump and pump equals noise :(

you can get water kits with variable fan speeds and yes they are quiter than most hsf and the market, also water is a way better heat conducter than copper

What I'm trying to get accross to you guys is I need SILENCE!

I appreciate all your input. But what I really need is a passive cooling system thats as near to silence as you can get.

Thanks so far

I don't know about this new CPU cooler.
First off it says, " 92mm Ultra-Quiet fan with 3-pin connector" Is this 3 pin connector a standard power connector or motherboard connector? Reason I ask is, will your motherboard monitoring software be able to read fan speed? And will this setup affect the way your monitoring software reads CPU temp? Plus, does you case configuration have enough room for the larger cooler and 92mm fan assembly?

Hell I have a 120mm "blow hole" as an intake on the front of my machine.

Give me a dremel and a six pack, we'll cool that thing down.:eek:

Yes you can monitor the fans, I already have most of the silent stuff and it really is silent. I also do already have case damping

As for the room I cant see a problem with that :D
