    would that be morally wrong to fry my psu on purpose so i can get a quieter one?? :laugh:

    but for real, i think i may have to upgrade soon, my comp is a freakin jet engine. i also just ordered a silent 80mm fan for my side window. im just tryin to quiet down my pc, guys.

    why do people say quite? its quiet. When I see quite I think of illiteracy.

    i just realized my psu was on the "performance" setting (faster=louder). so i put it down to "quiet" mode.

    that baby oil mod is sweet. although, i probably wouldnt put that much into cooling my power supply, to me, thats not the most important thing that needs cooling...
