(Almost) everything you need for your next silent PC project; CPU, mobo, a case, a PSU, & a cooler:
Prescott 3.4E at TweakNews.
“For one, the heat generated by this little powerhouse is downright astonishing. At a full load temperature of 95 degrees Celsius using a copper heatsink and a powerful fan, my thoughts were starting to be directed to the fact that this CPU is ~5 degrees from the boiling point of water which is concerning if perhaps your CPU heatsink came off for some reason.”
Gigabyte GA-8S655FX Ultra SiS655FX chipset board at myWORLD Hardware.
“The GA-8S655FX Ultra is an excellent performing board and it does pose a threat to Intelâ€™s mainstream i865 platform with its value pricetag. From the benchmark results, SISâ€™s 655FX Chipset does hold some solid ground on the Pentium 4 platform. Itâ€™s about time that an alternative showed up to give Intel some deserving competition.”
The NZXT Guardian Case at OCIA.
“This steel chassis mid-tower case brings a unique look as well as providing some nice ease of use features, including an almost completely screwless design. Its most prominent feature though has to be its unique “Guardian Eye Motion LED”, which could make you the envy of any LAN party.”
The Tagan TG480-U01 at Hexus.
“Support for upcoming ATX, ATX12V and BTX standards means you’ll be able to use it in a wide range of systems for quite some time, the sensible fan placement seems to be the key to its compliance. Recommended if you’re in the market for a new PSU, I can see Tagan becoming an enthusiasts choice in 2004. High quality is their aim, I think it hits the mark.”
The SpireWhisperRock IV at AllHardwareZone.
“Marketed as a product for computer users looking for a quiet cooling solution with competitive cooling capabilities, the WhisperRock performs exactly as Spire claims it to. While I wouldnâ€™t recommend this cooler to overclockers, it is a fine cooler to put in any other computer. The build quality was great, it has an attractive look and itâ€™s near-silent.”
