I would definitely be interested in things like the jet engines that you work on smile.gif
It's across the entire military, such as the USAF job opportunities.

It's just a thought that came across my mind, procrastinating finals.

I'm contemplating getting rid of my Rosewills for some more silent ones when I scrap the money for a new case.
Also just curious, what position do you hold in the US Navy?
I may want to stray into that field, but for the engineering opportunities.
Thanks for your service!

Please read post #27 for your answer. In short, they aren't great and Gelid makes much higher quality products.

Interesting, so you'd rather use these for case fans, or the Gelids?
I have no rad, as I'm not going to be watercooling anytime soon, but I need new case fans.

They are okay for case fans but just make sure you have a fan controller ready just incase one of them starts "whining" you can turn it down slightly.

I took the two I had hooked up as my front intake and top exhaust and plugged them into my case's fan controller and my rig is overall much more quiet now. Initally they were connected via molex and both running at 100% and it was too much to bear.

Edit: As far as the Gelid's vs. CM the Silent 12's just dont move enough air for a high end PC but would be amazing for a HTPC, but the Silent 12TC or 12PWM which move about 60CFM would of been perfect. Gelids quality is also amazing, the fans look great and have all black braided cables with a good length. The sickleflow's are silver unbraided and very short.

Ok, so I found a place that sells NZXT in Japan and im very excited. Sorry if people feel like they wasted time voting in my case poll I had before but I listed that before I knew that I could get NZXT in the country. I've always wanted a Switch 810 or Phantom so I couldn't resist buying it!

The overall quality is very high. The plastic feels sturdy and the paint doesn't seem likely to scratch / chip.

So I tore the old case down cleaned and dusted all my parts and installed them into the Phantom

Motherboards in!

CPU Cooler in, done are those Sickleflows and im actually using the NZXT fans that came with the case as rad fans and they rock!

Sorry I didnt take more pictures but heres the finished rebuild.

So what are my thoughts on this case so far? I love it, plus the built in fan controller works surprisingly well. I used the sickleflows as the door fans and front intake fan the fan controller does a great job at keeping the noise at bay.
Is there anything I wish I could change with it? My only beef with the case is the fact that there's only two USB's up front. Even the Zalman had 4.

I built a Phantom 410, and were surprised with their fans.
They seemed to be very decent, and now I'm curious how they rate against the Gelids..

I'd say fairly close, they are both silent, but the NZXT's move more air. As for the quality, gelids are still nicer. I'd say the Gelid Silent TC's would be very comparable as they move 60cfm

Got a Gigabyte 7950 to be added to the build tonight!



My personal oc war, 2500k vs 3570k
20120612_163807.jpg

On the left my friends computer I built (he used my old zalman case) it currently uses

-Ivy Bridge 3750K, Overclocked to 4.5 with ease, and didnt get as hot as i expected. The intergraded graphics really shine with Virtu MVP running. His 670 jumped from around a 3dmark score of high 8k's to just over 12k!

-MSI Referance 670, While it is a very powerful card on its own, the Referance cooler just cant keep it cool enough to get a good OC out of it, plus it sounds like a damn JET!. In all honestly I like my 7950 more, I've played with both cards for a month and the performance is very similar but the 7950 is just quieter and cooler.

-ASrock Extreme 4 Z77, Amazing motherboard this with the 3750 made overclocking rediculously easy. I hit 4.5ghz with almost no changes. Just multiplier and VCore.
