Well I was testing out some stuff on Velocitor tonight--I changed out a couple of fans and put in the uber expensive SilenX fans that I had modded with UV CCL tubes and UV mesh filters--and I am happy to report that I dropped the overall noise a ton without any loss in cooling. IN fact the cooling is marginally (2C) better. I turned down the tricools in the front to low and left the SilenX on full and the noise is far less--but I can tell by the amount of air coming out of the rad up top that it was a boost to the overall cfm.

Soooo I am ordering two more SilenX Blue LED fans for Velocitor and 4 red LED SilenX for the new ANtec 90 LCC case I am building. That's gonna be close to $200 just in fans... $100 for Velocitor and $100 for the 90LCC mod.

But I love the lack of fan noise. And the UV tubes are really bringing out some detail on the DFI board..in fact the rear mounted UV CCL is making the fluid in the res even glowier and redder!











I still need to tidy the wires but these are keepers! Velocitor must have! Since I usually do most of my work on Claw I often forget just how powerful and fast Velocitor is--just the little bit of fiddling I did to check temps was an eye opener...Claw seems pitifully slow by comparison...like a daily driver usually is LOL.

Considering I have the X2 4800+ juiced up pretty good and running at max stable OC Folding it's fairly cool NV Monitor (that lying POS SW) reports 40C with the system at 54C--this mobo has always run hot--oddly it's not the NB that NV Monitor calls "System" but some other part of the board, as I have seen no changes despite reseating theheatpipe and putting a 40mm fan directly in front of it. But the System temp is definitely related to the amount of voltage I am pumping into the board. Considerin

The system reading in NV monitor refers to the PWM temps.

And CD...where do you buy the SilenX fans from?

Yep--you're right baout that--but I don't know what part of the mobo that is or how to cool it

I just emailed SilenX about buying direct. If I can I'll get a number of them and have some on hand. I bought mine from Excaliberpc.com

No I said it would cost about $100 (before shipping) for 4 fans. I paid $58 for two fans shipped.

$29/fan is more acceptable lol.
REAL quiet and decent CFM right? I have the 900 too, the tricools are not bad until on high. They push 79CFM high, and those ones you have are 72CFM?
How do they compare noise-wise to the tricools, half as loud or less?
