Troubleshooting tip: Since you have a 2nd system, next time you should try just testing parts 1 by 1 between the 2 systems and try to check off whats working.

Agreed. I would definitely spend the extra cash if its worth while to spend on better quality parts. In the end (I've learned the hard way), those extra dollars (or Euros) go a long way.
Heh, thanks for the tip mate I thought about it but I didn't really want to change anything to my old cow when it still worked She's a fragile thing, lol! I was afraid to break anything, leaving me with two broken PC's (Yea I'm still kinda n00b in the whole computer/mod department)
Plus it's so old I doubt I can use it well for testing, lol.

Lol thanks I think I'm going for this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...atal1ty%20550W

It's not the cheapest but also not extremely expensive (60 euro's here including shipping). It looks well and although it's an extreme overkill for the Old Cow: it'd be good enough as a backup for my new PC too, just in case. Also, it's modular. I've always wanted to tidy up my Old Cow but I never got a reason untill now, since the PSU worked and I was happy it did

And when you see this pic, you'll know why I want to tidy it up xD

It is possible too have a waterloop and a fake floor, I will probably do that some time "soon" (last time i used that word it took like 3 month for any too happen)

Hello everyone!

Question to the owners.

I'm considering getting this case. However, i'll have to sit it next to my desk since my desk is really small and the case won't fit.

How much noise will it keep if I put it on something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

How much noise/quiet is this case in general?
post #5815 of 28613
Noise shouldn't be a problem as long as you invest in some silent cooling. Just pick any fan that has max. 22decibels and you'll be fine. My case is on my desk next to my face and I'm not bothered with noise. I use these fans:

- Enermax Cluster 120mm white led
- Cooler Master Long Life Red Led Fan (R4-L2R-20CR-GP)

The fans that come with the case are also really silent.

Make sure you have a silent CPU cooler as well. I think the scythe mugen or something will do. I use a Thermaltake Spinq VT myself.

Anyways if it's under your desk then the noise will be even less.

Good luck!

Yeah what Therapy said. Only thing I would say is get some kind of real time fan controller and you can adjust it to your needs.

Also I am sure you could make the same if not better stand out of a piece of superwood/mdf and 4 casters ? I know it would definatly be tougher and more rigid than that thing.

I would much rather have this -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-015-_-Product than that OCZ

On another note, does anyone have a SketchUp model of the storm scout case ?

Go with the OCZ. You'll have a much better time doing cable management with a modular PSU. I don't understand you guys that buy the non modular PSUs. The extra connections don't cause even a noticeable voltage drop and having to hide all the extra wires. BLEH! I'll never buy a non modular unit again. If you have enough coin Therapy go for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171036. They started a car with this unit. Look it up on you tube.

Yeah I don't really get why Talisman recommends that Earthwatts thing since it's not modular and I mentioned wanting to clean up the case more Though on the other hand, since the old PC is going to be just a backup PC it's not bad to take an environmentally friendly PSU that saves power, I guess. Just a shame it's not modular also it's more expensive then the OCZ.

The Cooler Master is even móre expensive, so I won't be opting for that one either. It's only for the Old Cow (It barely needs 300W lol) and the only reason I want a heavier wattage is that I want it to function as a potential backup for my new rig as well. But since the new rig has a Corsair modular PSU I doubt I'll need it anytime soon. Though if I learned anything from my recent experience it's always good to have backup parts for testing

Thanks for the advises though!

Yea forgot to mention a controller which is always a plus if you go for a silent setup good mention.

Well no matter what, that OCZ is a fine choice. Any news on your board?
