Everyone's gotta have a hobby, and I sure enjoyed this hobby. So I'm back too.

The wind got taken from my sails when I built this new system.


I went from a semi quiet system with a
3000+ A64 single core
Asrock mobo
2gig PC3200
XP90 cooler and a 92mm fan

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.

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.

Silence in the ear of the beholder. I just got my ears tested for the bi-yearly mandatory testing at the place I work and my hearing is very good. Yet the ambient noise in my apartment is louder then my computer. In my opinion if the noise from the computer is not bothering me then it is quiet enough. Any expense past that point is, well, pointless. On top of that the main use my computer makes much more noise from the speakers than the hardware could ever put out.

Also as for hard drives isn't solid state drives the way of the future? Should rule out noise as with lower powered CPU's and soon to be GPU's built right into the CPU. With lower power requirements you can get smaller PSU's and eventually be back to fully passive systems with no moving parts. This day is not that far away. No future in the silent hobby even if I was interested.
