Upon close inspection, it appears that it is the front intake fan that is causing the noise. It was difficult to reproduce once I had removed the fan, but when it was still installed I was 95% sure...

But the cooler is clamped down to themotherboard... I'll check it but it seems unlikely, and also if the cooler was loose the noise would continue whenever the computer is switched on.

I'm not denying that my chip isn't great at what it does, definitely better than my previous xD. I would have gone with full ATX if I could have but I wanted a reasonably small build, and now that...

I get the logic behind using a sound card, that's not what I was talking about. I was saying why legacy PCI is still put on boards, even though PCIe x1 would be of much more use, at least to me.

I'm not 100% set on the second PCIe x16, although it would be nice. As far as the USB 3 header goes, I've got an adapter to go from a USB 3 port to a USB 2 port, so I could live without it but it...

Haha, when I first read your reply you confused me slightly so that'll explain why. I know that it won't operate at USB 3 speed, but would it be slightly faster than the USB 2 ports on the front I/O?

Thanks for the reply. I know that I couldn't plug a USB 3 header directly into the USB 2 header, thats why I linked the adapter to changes the 19 pin USB 3 header to a 4 pin USB 2 header.
