    I just built my new PC a couple of days back. I had a major problem with the CPU fan RPM. My mother board is the GA-8INXP. The sound of the CPU fan was starting to get on my nervs it was at 5400 RPM. I had a look around my PC case and discovered that all the intake holes where under the case, not much air was getting in cause the case was on a carpet. So i tore out a Fan from my old PC and fixed it over the other suction fan! I lifted my case of the carpet and put two old CDROMs under the case for some airflow. Now my CPU Fan is running around 3000 RPM. Nice and silent. :idea: :idea:

    Iv fixed the link! :rolleyes2

    The older links where working fine when i put them on the first time. I dont know if the link changes every 24 hours or not. If they dont work by the time you see them ill just look for another place to put them on.

    Sorry about the mess in the photos, those photos where taken on its first run.

    Chaos i checked out your Ultimate sytem specs. The Radeon 9500 pro is a nice card but it depends on what type of games you want to run. The Seagate Barracuda i would totally forget, If i was you i would go for the new Western Digital Raptor 80GB Hard disk with 10.000 RPM. This SATA drive performs better than most top end SCSI hard drives of the market. :thumb:

    t00lb0x im 24 and i study networking and dont work for a living. :D My hobby is to buy top end PCs and see how they run. I guess i can afford it.

    heheh ok, and no the Raptor by WD is a great SATA, but the SCSI (especially Cheeta15k.3) run circles around it b/c SATA is relativily new, but i am looking at SATA b/c no need for round cables but you can only have 1 HD per channel (only if you gots like 3+ HDD its ok) but the raptor is the best SATA, but needs some more finetuning :D but its a good buy, if you dont mind the price

    t00lb0x it depends on what your talking about. SCSI is good for serving information lets say on a college network etc, I agree it would run circles around the SATA. Now lets talk about your average desktop user, I had a SCSI drive before and it offered no more speed than my ATA-100 Maxtor Maxline Plus II 250GB. In fact the Maxtor ran 0.210 faster than SCSI in opening Adobe photoshop 7.0.

    SCSI is simply the best in serving simultaneous information at speed. It also is the best at doing several operations at the same time. :D

    yes, but im talking about stuff like fastest read/write time and stuff for gaming servers and rigs...i have a 80 gig 2mb version running right now in my comp, when i use a 80 8 mb my 2001 score raises almost 300 points...its same content + runing processes, were talking ABOSULTE faster not best for normal/average desktop use

    Agreed!

    It all comes down to user and what he wants to do. For a gamer like me, all i need is a SATA. For user that want to run a Game server etc would have to look at a Ultra SCSI. :cheers:
