Default Re: So why the hell not?

Time to try out the silent-PC hobby. That's a never-ending spiral of increasingly critical expectations.

And - I mean this quite seriously - you're using a 3.5" HD without a Smart Drive-type enclosure, you have a long way to go.

to near silent with
2gig dual channel DDR2 PC6400 G-Skill.
MB BIOSTAR TFORCE TA780G M2+ AM2+
CPU AMD A64 X2 4200+ 2.2G 65nm 65watt
STOCK AMD COOLER!

I am almost kicking myself for not getting the 45watt version. If this keeps up then we won't need coolers at all soon (again). Kinda shot down my motivation for the cooling hobby.
