    Default Some questions about the 939 MoBo's

    I have to purchase a PC, but I can't decide which MoBo to choose.
    Actually, what is most important for me is silence.
    I'd use a AMD 64 3000+ or 3200+ CPU, and the MoBo should have an AGS slot, not the PCI-E. so either the nForce3 or the Via KT800
    So I'm looking at the KT800 MoBo's, because they don't have the noisy North bridge fans.
    What I would like to know whether it's fossible to replace the noisy heatsink on the nForce3 (Ultra, I guess) with a passive cooler? Or are the nForces too burning?

    I'm not sure, but it's worth a shot. I wouldn't be too suprised if it worked fine. If you plan on having any case fans, that'll help a lot. You could also just get a fan that isn't noisy (probably easiet to do). I'd certainly suggest an nF3 Ultra board over KT800 Pro.
