I thought I saw one... and that looked like a good solution.

But I'll be damned if I can find it again!


much props to anyone who knows the answer!

Yah it would...

But there are plenty of dual 80mm fan (noisy?) cases. I am kinda sure I saw one wiht two big fan holes on the back...

    Looks stunning!

    May I ask why you want 2 x 120? My LC17 (http://www.silverstonetek.com/de/products-lc17.htm) comes with 2 x 80, reducing them to 5V makes them less loud than my passive cooled VGA card :)

    Just asking cos u might like a case with 2 x 80 and are scared of the noise level they might produce since there is a solution to this.

    Regards, Muldini

    The Antec NSK-2400 (cheaper version of Fusion) also has 2 x 120 mm (3 speed fans).

    indeed Spragleknas is right

    the nsk 2400 difference with the fusion case is that fusion has a vfd and 420 psu while on the other hand the nsk has no vfd and a 380psu

    both cases imo are one of the best value for money cases out there, only sideback its both are matx if thats a concern for you

    nsk is around 80-90 usd and antec fusion around 180usd

    The Fusion also have real aluminium front - whilst the NSK2400 has a (good) imitation. The VFD takes up a 5.25"-space.

    Damn, those are some nice looking cases.

    To be honest I want a bit more room (ie more drives) than the fusion allows, and a VFD is a must.

    4 drives would be about right, but comparing the silverstone cases... LC16m is slightly smaller than the LC14m, and holds more drives?!

    So... they're really that quiet?

    Nice.


    What are you guys using to control fan speed then to make things quieter?

    Some PWM controlled thingo that is part of the bios?

    speedfan? How can you be sure speedfan will work on a given mobo?

    Run them undervolted. Or if you want to spend money, get a fanspeedcontrol :)

    What is the problem with using an IR remote control? IR is the best supported for MP. There used to be available a few RF remote controls for WMC, such as this one and this one by Emprex (they look identical). But as you can see, they are no longer available new from Amazon. You may be able to obtain pre-loved samples from Ebay, but...

    That's fun. I shattered my kneecap on one of those e-scooters. I'm terribly out of shape from the months of being bedridden. I didn't get fat, at least, but a walk in the park is not an expression of something being easy anymore.

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...
