First, I remember a while back people trying to make a stable passive cooling (no fans) power supply or some other fanless creation. Anyone here of it being done?
Second question, since I'm low on the funds and can't buy a decent cpu fan for a while, I've got a fairly cheap 80mm fan (cpu is Athlon 1.1ghz) on it and it idles at 45-47c and under maximum load can go as high as 50-51c, and with summer approaching, I'm kind of concerned about these temps
I have a loud-ass Fortis fan I could put on it, but that beast is around 50-55db but it does cool it to the low 30s
Ok, this is the coolest most wicked mod I have ever seen.
I'd be willing to do this if it weren't for having to cut out a chunk of copper, mainly because I don't have the equipment (it would kill the Dremel) and I wouldn't have any idea where to get a plate of copper.
I thought a lot of other crazy stuff I've seen was hardcore, like using a nes console for a case, but this takes the cake
Your best bet is the Enermax PSUs - they have a dial on the back to adjust the fan rpms and the PSU can operate in noiseless mode even with the fans going. Any quiet or noisless PC stuff that you require: Zalman and Enermax are the kings.
