    Just ordered a SB75G2......

    ..... to replace my SN41G2. Is there any thing I should know about these? Like what settings not to change? Or any known problems?

    Hi - I got one a few weeks back and have been very happy with it. No common problems that I'm aware of.
    I guess you already know to try and get a V2 one with the silentx 250w PS and Heatsinks on the Mosfets, came out just after I got mine - typical

    The only prob I had was no sound initially, caused by the front connector on the mobo coming loose but easily fixed

    Swapped the Sunon like everyone does for a Noiseblocker S4 and fitted a CF-631 LCD in the 3.5" bay / put a reflectix front on it and it looks sweet.
    Wish I'd gone SFF ages ago

    Make sure you get a Shuttle black monitor to match

    Cheers guys. I didn't know there was two revs of it. I've ordered it from MicroDirect. I'll have to wait and see if it turns out to be a rev2.

    I did almost get the Athlon 64 shuttle but the entire black look of the SB75G2 and the grilled sides won me over in the end.

    I love the look of the Athlon 64 model, with the smooth front panel and Card Reader built in instead of a 3.5" bay, really looks neat

    Just took another look at MD page on this....

    http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...ProductID=4880

    and noticed it is on special. That is making me think this may be a rev 1 they are trying to clear stocks on :-/

    I hope not, I really wanted the 250w silent x PSU.

    *fingers crossed*

    Love mine, i really do.

    Get yourself a silentx fan to replace the standard 80mm one and speedfan (program) so that you can control the speeds of them in windows.

    Thats about all youve got to do

    Well im just gonna get the SilentX PSU and then the S3 Noiseblocker fan for a replacement of the standard CPU fan. Have the fan speed set to Auto/Medium and then it'll be fine

    You can also get hold of a Zalman Northbridge heatsink to replace the fan. I did that a couple of months ago and had no problems.

    I have a Noiseblocker ICE fan, Silent-X PSU, Northbridge heatsink and both hard drives set to the lowest acoustic level and with Speedfan at 5% the system is ridiculously quiet.
