|dmh165638||The 120mm fans are great. Move tons of air at very low RPM's and low dB. I have three 120mm fans (front, back, blowhole), 2 80mm in PSU, and 92mm in side panel. I usually buy a cheap case and mod it myself.|

Athlon 64 3000+ZALMAN CNPS7000B-AlCu
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
(2)Maxtor 40G IDE HD
ATI Radeon 9800PRO 256MB-ATI Silencer Rev. 3
Antec 550 True Power PSU
Raidmax ATX case
Go with the good case, I tried to cheap out on my case. It doesn't work with the 64's. I ended up putting another power supply in because a raidmax 450's rails suck. Then adding good quiet fans was not cheap either. Save yourself some time and money get the antec case.

i have the shuttle sn95g5, which is the AMD socket 939 3200+. If I do not OC it, it runs at 29 - 30 degrees celcius, and 31-32 under load. I can easily OC to a 3500+ and temp does not fluctuate. It has an integrated smart fan (120mm) and it feels like cold air is blowing out of the back of the case. I have a 6800GT that under load reads about 50 to 51 degrees celcius(which is fine).
It's a badass little system and it fits in a backpack. I'm the first loading every game,(sorry Ktulu, I'll get you a raptor some day ) and it plays everything extremely well.
It's my third system and I've always loved these little bastards

|Orion||i meant they are great for being low noise. and what does your vid card run at? 6800's have a built in temp monitor if you go to your display properties after a good round of hl2 or some other game that will put some serious load on it. i know mach1 had a fic icecube and opted to take the side window out b/c the vid card sits so close to the side that it doesnt really get an ample amount of fresh air for the hsf. i beleive it was kyle from [H] that also modded his shuttle for the vid card. the one i am thinking about they removed the window and mounted it with some spacer rods so that it was still there, but gave a bigger pocket of air for the video card to use.|

|Osiris||I forgot to mention, I have a hard drive cooler on both my hard drives.... There are to itty bitty fans on each of those as well. The only downside is, that I have to dust frequently.|

|Orion||shuttles are great for noise, but not so great for airflow. proc's usually stay cool cuz they have good hsf's and most come with heatpipes to the back, but other components such as vid cards tend to run hotter, so it depends on what your application is|

|Craizie||get a shuttle, i have a p4 2.6 and some other stuff and cant hear it in my room. stays at about 36*c|

|Orion||the 5 80mm's aren't that loud actually, its just the damn 80mm tornado|

|AbecX||My power supply was $150, antec phantom.|
|03-07-2005 09:53 PM|
Jesus guys, some of you are flowing air like it's going out of style or something, lol. Yeah Abec, knew about your heating system, but didn't know what kind of case that actually was. Orion and Silver, your guys' fans are crazy, I would think they would sound like damn jets.
Thanks guys, i might go with a different case that has 120mm fans and just get one of the PSU's like you have AbecX, I kind of like the thought of a PSU without a fan (I don't know why, but you said efficiency was higher).
Thanks again guys

|ThreeFingerPete||I overclocked my 1.8ghz 3000+ 939 to 2.29, but i started to get windows errors, so i'm pretty sure something's not liking life, right now.|
|03-06-2005 08:17 PM|
|Osiris||OKay, let's try this again... I have 7 fans that flow 34.2 CFM each. 2 on the rear, on on the side, and 4 in the front. Oddly enough, it's not much louder than my PS2.|
|03-06-2005 02:05 PM|
0 CFM in my case as there are no fans, not even the power supply.
I have a aspire navigator case which is very sweet, and comes with a 450watt power supply for those that need it. Its very nice looking and doesnt look cheap at all. It was $99 from newegg.

the sonata is a good quiet case. I have an Antec Super LanBoy, and the two fans that came with the case, were meant to be quiet and not push that much air (imo).
So I replaced them with two 120mm Panaflo's.
They each push somewhere between 90 to 100 cfms at 3000rpms.
i think, i'll have to double check.
|03-06-2005 01:08 PM|
|Orion||80cfm is definatly fine, and the sonata is a badass case. i have a thermaltake xaser 2. it has 5 80mm fans that push ~34cfm each. two in the front, 2 in the back, and one in the door. but it is definatly not quite, espeicially not with my tornado 80mm fan on the proc|
|03-05-2005 08:00 PM|
|greenrebel||come on guys, i know one of you guys must know about the specs on your case. AbecX, you gotta help me out, .|
|03-05-2005 02:53 PM|
What kind of CFM is your case flowing?
I'm still looking into cases and just got paid for the month so I want to get the case and actually start buying parts. One of the graduates that I work for in my lab is using Antec sonata and says it works great, but was wondering if ~80 CFM is good or not... that's with only one fan i think and I can always add the 2nd. Case is expensive, but since i live in an apartment it stays in my room and the more quiet the computer, the better.
AbecX I'm not going to go your route with all that hardcore stuff, but would like to OC this computer. I'm thinking AMD 64 for 939 socket 3000+ (since i will upgrade in less than a year probably), still looking for the right Mobo.
Just would like to see what kind of flow you guys are getting with your case and what OC rate you are at.
