    Hi all,

    I am running an AMD X2 4850e processor in a Silverstone GD01MX case, cooled by the Scythe Kama Cross.
    The problem with this combination is, that there is almost no space between the cooler and the case ceiling. This generates a good amount of noise, which is of course not acceptable in a media center.

    Could anyone please recommend me a silent cooler fitting on this cpu in this case?

    I have deactivated the case fans because they were too loud, heat is ok with only the Kama Cross. The psu is very quiet. All the noise is coming from the cpu cooler (sadly cool'n'quiet doesn't really work, but that's another problem).

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Hi!

    In the same brand you can choose the Scythe Ninja Mini. I've seen it running in passive mode with a X64 5050e, but you can use the fan included if you don't want to activate the case fans.

    Regards

    I haven't gotten far with passive cooling yet, but I always thought it would make sense to go about it the other way - stop the CPU fan and also any intake fans, and get a quiet 120mm case exhaust fan. If the airflow in your case is good, this will draw air over all of your components and cool them without need for individual fans. The Scythe or something similar should be tall enough to get into airflow of any large exhaust fan.

    Installed the NT01 today. Max temps are 63C with both case fans at full speed. (30 minutes of hyperpi running) Idling with MP running it hovers around 40C Despite the 2 case fans it's still more quiet than 1 casefan and the old zalman cooler, so and all in all, I'm reasonably happy with it. Now it's the tv which is the loudest...

    At daylight the contrast and the "blackness" of black isn't the best compared to the plasma, but I think thats obvious. But at night, at full light; boy, the colors are stunning :) Before I bought my projector I wasn't sure if I'll buy an 3D LCD LED 46" from Samsung or the said Projector, but I'm glad I've chosen the projector...

    I am right now waiting for the AMD Llano A8-3800 (65 Watt Version). It massivly trumps the Sandy Bridges on GPU performance and has enough CPU oomph for an htpc. As the A8-3805 (100 W TDP) is now around 110€, I expect the 3800 to be in a similar range (give or take some). Has anyone heard when it will be available? My last info was "now"

    Hi guys, Nothing to show, but a little update...... The Seasonic PSU failed on me... but it was swapped out under warranty (one week turn around). The replacement has a very very quiet hum (only hear it with head against the HTPC). I'm now running an i7 ivy bridge (was built with an AMD) - so my hope of it being interchangable...
