So I save everything and needless to say have every cable known to man for computers times ten at least. Well Noctua ships every fan with two resistor fan speed cable and low and ultra low noise cable and I've never.....ever had to use then with any Noctua fan yet. So I finally used one on of all fans a new BitFenix 230mm. Wow this fan was loud for a 230mm as they only spin to 900 rpm.....how loud could that get? Well placed the low noise resistor in and the noise threshold has drop by 15-20 db and my rig is cool and quiet.

OK here is the 3rd PC on my desk, this one has an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T at 3.00 and 3.5 GHZ by the bios automatically. Has an AsRock MB 980DE3/US3 with 16Gb Corsair DDR3 1600Mhz ram. Like my main machine this has a Pioneer BD-RW BDR 2080 drive and an Asus DVD burner. Has a Gigabyte GTS 450 Nvidia graphics driving my 3rd LG L227WTG monitor. The super sharp amongst you will notice the SCSI card at the bottom of the motherboard for my circa 1998 Agfa Snapscan 600 scanner. I use a 64 bit driver and Vuesan to run it. The soundcard is an Xfi Gamer. Only 3 hard drives this time. I have an add on card for USB, Sata and card readers in the middle drive bay of the NZXT 210 case. I also have 6 fans and 2 on the CPU cooler and the whole lot is powered by a trusty Enermax PSU. I have the 3 monitors next to each other with one mouse and keyboard and the whole lot is controlled by the main PC with Mouse Without Borders a fantastic free program that save me being buried in keyboards.... Note, the 6th case fan is in the side of the case.
