About this, but only KingCody knows hehe
Which one are you getting?
Abit's Nforce 4 Ultra motherboard
BTW, that chipset's fan should be quieter than this ****ing little one:
It's loud, but keeps my toasty Geforce 6100 cool.
no, it's not "incredibly loud". like any fan that small it's "whiny"
it only bothers me because the rest of my system is almost silent, so I hear it louder than everything else. but chances are that you won't even hear it over your CPU fan, video card fan, and case fans.
Its prolly just a simple 40mm fan that is replaceable.
Thanks for the feedback people.
Now I don't care at all about the chipset's fan. I'm used to the fan's noise, so that tiny fan (rotating at more than 3000-4000 RPM's sure ), won't bother me at all.
And if it does, I'll just turn on my speakers
Thanks everyone for your valuable replies :wave:
He's now John2008 hehe
I have another question for you guys ( I didn't want to open a new thread )
Newegg has two different Athlon 64 3700+ Cpu's (or revisions, IDK)
ADA3700BNBOX and the ADA3700CFBOX
What's the best one? What should I get?
What's that grey box (as I ponder, I feel like a noob :blackeye: )?
Grey little box? Probably you're talking about the Silencer 5.
That's probably it, right? I'm not used to seeing them propped up the way they are (in general, I only look at my mobo and my friends, neither which have that as well). It looks like it' s covering the video card, no?
Yes it is. It replaces the normal L-shaped RAM "heatsink".
Got it now, usually I recognize the silencers as on top of the video card only (that replace the heatsink completely but don't expell air out of the computer itself).
You're used to see the Silencer like this, ain't you?
Yes, I've seen those everywhere (I do know what they are to clarify things, I just didn't recognize the large grey version of it)!
Don't worry, it looks weird from that angle.
Ok, thanks a lot Mirob. So the CF is a Toledo core, with one entire core disabled.
Maybe I should pick the normal BN stepping, or is there a difference that would make the "toledo" better?
