Phenom II based quiet desktop - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Whichever CPU you go with, the easiest way to keep things quiet is, like others have said, to get a good aftermarket cooler and just run the fans at a lower RPM. A fan controller will help to balance noise/performance with your case fans.

i am currently running a Phenom 955 with this cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185142 and the fan I have hooked up to motherboard. When im not gaming all my case fans are barely spinning and inaudible and the CPU fan doesn't even kick in. I have used this cooler in both a cramped mAtx and a mid tower Atx and either way it is amazingly awesome.

Side not I have built 2 more Pc's with this processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103846 and unlocked it to 4 cores. Being the C3 revision it has a little bit better thermal properties and cools just that much better than my 955. I have read though that not everyone gets the other 2 cores unlocked so it is a gamble.

In the end get fans under 1600rpm and use a fan controller or get 800 - 1200rpm fans

I just noticed the person above me is using the Mugen 2 also same processor too!

No, it does not have ghosting in games. It's an excellent monitor, even for first person shooters.
