I wondered about the general idea of an order I'm about to place.
I'm about to change my case and fans, so what do you think?
I've got an AMD XP 1900+, an ASUS A7M266 board and a Creative Ti4600.
I'll probably get a Chieftek Blue Miditower with a 300W Zalman power supply.
A Zalman 6000Cu heatsink with corresponding 92mm fan (with a copper shim) instead of a Thermaltake 6.
A switch of the standard hairdryer fan on the Ti4600 to a Zalman ZM17Cu heatsink and a 80mm FB165 fan bracket.
Also a change of the 40mm Spire fan on the northbridge to a Zalman pure copper heatsink, as well as 4 Zalman 80mm fans, two intakes in the front, an intake in the side, and a blower in the back.
Lots of Zalman, but i want a silent system. The real question is whether I can lower the voltage on all(!) my fans to 7/5.5 volts and still have an acceptable temperature? Anyone tried this or is this a foolish idea?
