Whats the worst part about overclocking? NO! It’s not the women who are just trying to use you to get to your faboulously fast system, it’s the noise! Well if you’re like me and about to throw your system out the window due to excessive fan sound, check out this Vantec Nexus Fan Controller Review. Theres still hope!
“In the quest to push our systems to the limit of their performance potential, its easy to get carried away with cooling. In my modest system I have a total of nine fans keeping everything nice and frosty. Now as much as I like having the extra cooling for running benchmarks and keeping everything stable, one thing I hate is the noise level of all those high speed motors whining away. My wife agrees with me whole-heartedly. Some compromise has to be found to keep the noise level from drowning out the TV in the next room, not to mention the sound from my speakers. Well you can’t very well stick the case in a soundproof box and expect reasonable cooling so the only solution is to ditch some fans. The thing is, I happen to need all those fans (honest!) for running benchmarks and such at high overclock so we have to look for an alternative.”
