Funny thing is before I did any research on buying stuff for my new system, I was going by Intel's "how to build a computer" guide and thought I HAD to have one of those cases. Only problem is they're impossible to find...sorta like some of intel's chips...then of course I wisened up and bought an AMD system :)

yeah i think AMD's the way to go. Intel is too much of a big business for my likes.

I've got a book of matches,
I've got a can of kerosene,
I've got some bright ideas involving you and me.

Nope, I have a Northwood and a cheap Metis case with a side , front, and back fan. I guess I'm "Thermally Disadvantaged"! :lol:

Whicked music too bad my water cooling runs quieter and removes more heat.

i think a flexible duct(like a dryer exaust vent) would be more in order.

How many millions of dollars per year does a company have to make before it becomes "too much of a big business" for you?

i've been using those cases for a while. extra cooling without extra noise.
You must be close to deaf then if you call that "without extra noise". With an extra side vent <i>right</i> by the CPU, and with a tunnel to guide the noise straight out that hole no less, extra noise is not even a question. It's a given.

My company has been toying with some new client PCs with cases like that and they drive me insane. Luckily I have an older PC from before the concept.

Lol thats the dumest thing i've ever heard.A big company has the money to develop new products even if they loss money doing so (like microsoft did with the x box)

How much stock do you have to have before those fans are quiet?
**ROFL** I don't think that I could have put it better myself. Either zer0 has stock invested in there somewhere or his hearing is quite bad. I've never heard louder fan noise from a PC in my life as when recent Intel processors are put into cases with those ducts.

really like which ones?
I've heard both 2.8GHz NWC and 2.8GHz Scotties in these types of cases. (For some reason my company is trying to match our new client boxes to our old 2.8GHz NWB client boxes.) So they're not even running close to as hot as could be and they're already pretty loud.

As far as noise goes I'd take the old 2.8GHz NWB in the old case any day. (Or even better, my near silent year old 2.0 NWA server box.) Of course to most people processing power matters more than noise does, but I still can't get over how much louder a PC gets with a case using those ducts. It's awful. The only thing worse that I've ever heard from fan noise is my old DEC-Alpha server box with so many high RPM 80mm fans (two intake, two exhaust, one on the hard drive bay, and even one on a cage over the RAM) that it looks like an inside-out airplane and sounds almost as loud as one.

I'll take an Antec Sonata with a slight mod to make the dual-fanned 120mm CPU-positioned air channel any day of the week. It's much quieter and great cooling.

I seen a P4E yesterday I didnt find it very loud and yes its frikken warm in my neck of the woods. From what I can tell 3.0c's and 3.0e's pretty well sound the same on air. But thats personal observations so take that with a grain of salt.

No complaints about noise here! As long as it performs. Intel stock fan for the 3.0e has speed control auto. it speeds up when temps rise, and slows down.
