Passive Feezer 7 Pro
« on: March 29, 2008, 01:53:32 PM »

will this be fine with two 80mm 20CFM fans near behind it with the new dual core celeron stock?

any other passive/DEAD silent options for an HTPC? (newegg preferably)

Posting a photo of your setup would help, along with what you plan to be dong, e.g. overclocking

passive options aren't always necessary, you can get some really really quiet fans.

(and cases with noise deadening lining, as well as rubber between the hard drives+cages, quiet power supplies, quiet cpu fans)

I've been playing with a Cooler Master Gemini II with one Silverstone FN121 fan this evening-- on an E6750, I'm having a very hard time getting it to spin up to an audible volume, using it on a board with a "Smart Fan" setup (Gigabyte P35-DS3L). At idle, it drops to like 600rpm  and at load, it's sitting at 883RPM.

The nice thing about the Gemini II is, because it was underwhelming in the "Compete with anything from Thermalright or a big Scythe or a Zalman 9x00" class, it sells very cheaply.  For a while, they had super-agressive rebates on it, where you could get it for like $2 or $3 after rebate.  Not right now, but I got mine at $3 or so.

I've heard claims anything below 1200rpm is inaudible on a 120mm fan.

My present case has one 120mm exhaust, an Antec SP-500 PSU (the rear fan only runs on presence of heat), and the loudest things are the drives spinning up and the tick of the hours-of-use meter on the front panel.
