Cooling my Gaming HTPC? I have an i7 2600 with a 560 Ti in a Silverstone GD05B. (My build list is here http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Lo8V and it's mostly still accurate.) As a gaming PC, I have no complaints. I've been able to play everything I want on it without issue. As an HTPC, it's overkill, but that's OK. However, because it's an HTPC and thus on a shelf in my living room, I want it to be as quiet as possible. It's fine when there's something on - TV, game, music - but it's audible even when idle, especially if it has just been used and is cooling down. I'm using the stock heatsink that came with the i7 but I think that's the primary source of noise. I get that no PC is going to be completely silent but I have a glass door over the front of it (it's cracked to allow some air) and I can still hear it whirring 8 feet away. I'm thinking that the best thing I can do at this point is to get into a liquid cooling element to replace the i7 heatsink. I'm considering the Antek Kuhler H2O 620. It's very well reviewed, and small, which is a must because I'm using the cramped GD05B case. Reviewers say that the Kuhler definitely keeps their CPU running cooler overall, which is another thing I'm looking for (right now, for instance, I'm idling between 40-55C and loads during games can get to 70C+). To allow more air to flow through, I keep the lid off of the case. I have the original 120mm fans that came with the case as intakes blowing over the RAM and CPU (which don't seem to be working very well as I can barely feel the air), two Rosewill 80mm exhaust fans in the back, and a Rosewill 120mm intake fan on the far side by the PSU. The Rosewill 120mm is controlled by a fan controller and is set to an inaudible speed; everything else is controlled by PWM. My questions are: 1) For those who have used the Antek Kuhler, are they really a good investment for low noise and cooling performance? 2) Are there other case fans that I should be considering to reduce noise and increase cooling power? 3) Is there a push/pull system better than what I have set up right now? In other words, does it seem like I have my fans going the right way? 4) I realize that one of the 120mm intakes would be replaced by the Kuhler exhaust so will just one intake in that area be enough? 5) Should I keep the lid off, or is that causing more harm than good? Many thanks in advance.

would this be a good budget gaming pc? My aim is to get a gaming pc, that can get atleast 30fps on high, or 60fps medium, for about £500. I can now play games like GRID 2 on medium seetings on about 30-40fps, using a standard laptop. I don't have high expectations, but I want to get the most out of my £500 budget, if needed I may be able to add an extra £20 but I don't want to go over £500, only if its necessary. I do care about looks, but if possible, I would like to use this case (http://astore.amazon.co.uk/tedits-21/detail/B006JQZ8MY) , it on not on their website, so im not sure if the parts I have chosen will be compatible.

Should my Dell Studio XPS 8100 PC have a loud fan? I have a Dell Studio XPS 8100 with an i7 quad-core processor and 8GB RAM. Love the PC, but when the fan revs up you can hear it in the other room. If I'm playing a multimedia file quietly I have to turn up the volume when the fan revs up. It doesn't sound like it's broken or anything. It doesn't rumble or rattle. But when the processors are even slightly taxed, such as when processing a RAW image or video, the fan starts blowing like I've never heard on a PC before. Is this normal?

Computer Fans run hard, New cpu installed? I just installed a new cpu in my computer. I upgraded from a AMD Athlon 3600+ to a AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4800+. With the old cpu, fans ran soft all the time, but with this new cpu it runs fast only when playing games. The fans run quiet in idle, but when I start playing cod they go to the max (5445 RPM-very noisy). Checked if the cpu was supported...pass. Cant be a power issue because I installed a new 550 watt power supply, more than enough. Tried to change settings in BIOS, it didnt let me. It only starts going fast either at startup or as soon as I play a game, the cpu isnt even running at 50% and it runs at full speed. Heres some extra info about my pc Operating SystemMicrosoft Windows XP Media Center Edition CPU TypeDualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2400 MHz (12 x 200) 4800+ Motherboard ChipsetATI Radeon Xpress 200, AMD Hammer System Memory1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM) BIOS TypeAward (01/25/07) Video AdapterATI Radeon HD 3450 (1024 MB) Its weird because it only does it on the dual core and not on the old one. Any more info you need and ill post more detail.

What's a good, reliable and cheap power supply that I can buy to use with a new nvidia 8600 GTS? I'm getting a new 8600 GTS and I'm trying to find a good power supply to use with it, but I really don't know anything about the brands or anything. Sorry for not adding details. My PC is an HP a1730n and I really don't want to spend more than $60 on the power supply. I think 450-550W is enough because the only extra thing I need to power is the video card. Right now, my PC is running off the stock 350W, which sucks. Other people have recommended antec and coolermaster as reliable brands.
is this a good computer for gaming and playing fallout new vegas, skyrim and other games? some of the other games are fallout 4 when it comes out and GTA 5 im not really sure if its worth spending like £800 on a computer that wont be able to play those games on ultra and what sort of FPS will i get.

Please comment on my PC build (detailed parts)? Hello, I have spent HOURS looking for the hardware that I'd like to put to my personal computer. However, before purchasing these parts, I would like to consult you! Please comment on the parts separately and the whole PC, if you can. Whole PC costs 675$ http://www.skytech.lt/intertech-power-supply-energon-eps-230v-50hz-33512v-650w-retail-active-pfc-1x120-p-24025.html I know this PC won't be using as much as 650W, but I want a good reserve so the PSU fan would have no need to work fast and noisy. http://www.skytech.lt/h67-box10-ddr31333blkdh67clb3-915090-intel-p-63875.html The motherboard choice is really wide. I simply took a newer version of intel H67 as someone told me it's good O_O http://www.skytech.lt/memory-dimm-4gb-pc12800-ddr3hyperx-kit2-kingston-p-63216.html Cheap, ddr3, 1600mhz, lifetime guarantee. http://www.skytech.lt/cpu-desktop-core-i32120-33ghz-3mbs1155-box-p-59767.html The best i3 processor yet. Please do not offer me to change to cheaper AMDs... I just want THIS processor. http://www.skytech.lt/caviar-black-500gb-sata3-72k-p-55266.html Cheap, SATA3, 7200 rpm. I won't need more than 500gb. http://www.skytech.lt/zotac-cuda-gts-450-amp-edition-1024mb-ddr5-128bit-dualdvihdmi-pcie-box-p-65655.html A very quiet, low power usage quality GPU. It costs as much as GTX 460, which is better, though. GTS 450 is my final choice, please do not offer alternatives, unless they are GTS 450 only made by other manufacturers. (I have chose Zotac, because it's overclocked, it's smaller and Zotac cards are known for good quality, I think). http://www.skytech.lt/korpusas-psu-ibox-lynx-703ld-prescot-juodai-geltonas-lcd-ekranas-p-66945.html Ah, finally. The box itself. I really like the design. I just developed an allergy to all the gray boxes after seeing a few hundred... As you can see, the whole PC is a quality one. There are no parts in this pc that are the worst/cheapest. It's slightly less performance, but high quality, low noise, low power usage, low temp, good design. And performance of this computer is not that bad, either. It can play Crysis or any similar game without lag with best graphics and a decent resolution (my max resolution is 1280x1024 anyway!) So... I don't know how anyone else is feeling about this computer, but I smell style and youthful quality. Please let me know if you think different. And if you think I should take different parts (just don't offer a different pc for the same price, as this is my choice). Comments about motherboard and it's alternatives are the most welcome. You can view english details on each hardware part by selecting the "specifikacijos" on those web pages. I'm not advertising, that site doesn't ship outside Lithuania anyway.

Nvidia 9600 GT 512mb DDR2 dedicated graphics card with VGA S-Video (HDTV) DVI and HDMI Outputs for the same 598 GBP I am leaning towards i7 920, I feel lyk the price of this has settled, and the i7 860 is too much as it just got introduced. I am not a heavy gamer, just lukin for a fast pc, might play once in a while, but nothing hardcore. What do you guys feel? should I wait for i7 860 price to settle ? i7 920 is promising, and does give way for future upgrades. losing the triple channel ram seems to be a big negative on the 860s part, gfx is my option i can bump it up, but not much of a gamer, i watch loads of HD content, 1080p stuff with crazy file sizes, but other than that nothing much, i think 9600gt will be enough for that. if atleast the 860 was cheaper than 920 by a third i wouldve gone for it,, but at the same price, i think its not such a gud deal afterall..
RAM question.. Is 2X2GB better than 1X4 GB? So I am custom ordering a computer and am just wondering is 2X2GB RAM better or worse than 1X4GB RAM?

Ready to build first PC, would like opinions please? I will be ordering my hardware very soon from ebay (can't use newegg where I live). Are all the components I have chose compatible and have I over looked anything else such as not enough cooling, PSU leads to short or too small a tower? I am also slightly nervous nervous about it. I have watched tutorials on youtube and it looks easy enough, but they all seem to have disassembled the computer and reassembled it for the purpose of the video. I am worrying that after I get everything connected I'll have alot of BIOS tweaking to do, and knowing me I'm likely to set something the the wrong value and damage something.
