    Question Silent 939 Cooler

    Slowing building my new Media Center and am looking for a quieter cooler than the stock 3200+ one.

    Anybody tried one of these - Cooler Master Susurro - claimed to be only 16dB

    Any other suggestions for anything decently priced??

    Si

    Akasa ev0 120 is around 15db, havent tried one yet mysef. Its ment to be a slight improvement on the stock cooler for temps, but a good improvement for sound. Its £35 from scan, am half tempted although I should really sort my PSU first.

    sounds good to me what socket tho 939?

    Thermaltake big typhoon with a decent fan
    Zalman CNPS9500-LED Aero Flower Cooler tho might be a bit big if size is a concern its on deal of the day at scab
    to be honest that cooler master claims to be low profile so that sounds a good choice

    I think he's putting this into a relatively low profile casing.. so all them XP-120, CNPS9500 or Big Typhoon are out of the question..

    That LP cooler seems reasonable.. should serve well as a media centre PC..
    Me want Ultrabook

    I haven't decided on a case yet, but will be airing on the side of low profile just in case.

    After finding the Xbox360 interfaces seemlessly with Media Center, I am quite tempted to leave the htpc in the study and use the Xbox as the frontend instead though.

    Right, I've ordered a Susurro to go with my a Tagan PSU - fingers crossed the pc will be nice and quiet

    Installed my new components over the weekend, the Susurro and Tagan are indeed very very very quiet Only problem I have is the motherboard reporting a CPU Fan error as its only spinning at 700rpm.

    Just need to replace the hard drive when I have the money.

    Actually, the BIG TYPHOON is the best! Check it out at SPECIAL TECH for only £25!
