    Watercooling pumps - how noisy are they?

    Just a random question I'm interested in knowing the answer too ... are custom water-cooling pumps noisy? I'm interested because some day I want to go (properly) water-cooled, but I wont bother if the pump is going to whine or groan or resonate in any way. Essentially it's all about the noise...

    RAID1 with differing firmware

    Hello chaps. Right, well I've had a couple of Seagate 1TB hard drives in RAID1 for a while (the ones with the dodgy firmware :shadedshu) - anyway, a couple of months ago one of them bricked. So I RMA'd it and it was replaced with a retail version of the same drive (slightly different product...

    OCZ Apex SSDs in RAID0?

    Just a bit of info needed. I just recently got me a 60Gb OCZ Apex SSD and installed Vista on it, and most of the rest of my programs on a WD 300Gb VelociCraptor. Sadly the raptor bricked soon after and was RMA'd. Now eBuyer no longer stock the raptor so I will be getting a refund and was...
