Windows 7: I need opinions on new PC hardware config

12 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7 RTM x64

well, I'm having a real hard time finding out about noise levels on geforce 580 cards for example.

The links i provided all seem like good chassis so it comes down to the raven chassi with its unique design vs that foam material on the normal design chassi. When it comes to actual noise levels of computers i find it hard to find any information

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I'm not at home now and this machine is not running properly, it's really slow.
I'm sure I've seen a noise comparison test with graphics card, possibly in UK magazines PC Pro or CustomPC.
When I get home I'll find a link for you if I can.
Take your time and do lots of research on the case. You need to be thinking about an upgrade path and bear in mind that you will be living with the case longer than it's contents.
Also think carefully about case fans as these can affect both cooling and noise levels. I'd recomment Sharkoon Silent Eagles.
They shift a lot of air and are very quiet. I have seven in my case and all I can hear is the GPU fan, which is why you need to look at a review that talks about noise levels on the 580. I believe the 580 runs much cooler than the 4 series so will not make as much noise but I'm not sure on that so check it out.

Cheers, John
