    I dont think that this Monster is really silent.

    And why?

    Quad Cpu @4Ghz and HD2900xt Crossfire?

    Damn, that is going to be one extreme gaming computer. What CPU fan are you getting? My Zalman is super quiet.

    I have the Zalman 9500 AM2, and as far as I can tell the only difference between the 9500 and the 9700 is that the 9700 supports Intel boards. If that's the case DO IT!! Mine is super quiet even on high and keeps my CPU cool even with an aggressive overclock.

    Sladesurfer, that PSU will kill your dreams of an uber silent PC...

    Silent = NEO HE,
    Same goes with the GPU cooler unless you are installing an acceleroX1 onto it.

    Now to get it silent, your Raptor wont make any vibration, but remember that it....

    WHINES!!!

    Grab yourself a pair of ZM-F1s 92mm for the intake fans; they are silent on silent mode (duh).


    WHY DO I GET ALL THE CRAPPY HARDWARE :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    noo... now time to sell my mobo... :(

    My PSU is actually silent.It has a 140mm fan and the cooler from my card is 16 dba :) as far as whining i dont hear it maybe because of the sound dampening material on the Antec case and its suspended in a rubber band so no noise vibration :)

    There is nothing WRONG with the 7800 GT, it's just old. I have a feeling DX10 isn't going to take off instantly, so those of us not fortunate enough to have a 8800 or 2900 aren't completely out of luck.

    slade,

    nice rig, very sexy. a few comments...

    *why did you mount to mobo before the cpu/cooler? isnt that goign to make it alot harder to get the cpu/cooler on?

    *why are you usign the stock intel hsf? that right there is goign to ruin your silence...

    anyway, wil give it a 10/10 when you post it i nthe case gallery...


    as depeche mode once said... enjoy the silence.

    chris

    I agree with most posts here, this PC is not über silent, it's not even semi silent. Surely will be fast, but not silent. Also, buying a new CPU so close to the pricecuts seems a bit silly a well.

    If you had of read the previous posts you would have known that he's waiting on the CPU cooler and just wants to use it in the mean time.
