Still doesnt help him with the not going online.Hm, unlikely, ..check out the Thermalright Archon, it's outperforms it.
Still doesnt help him with the not going online. They don't stock them, it's an online business.
Nope, 'fraid not, that'd be the Archon..Thats why I recommended Wootware, guys are decent there and would try and make a plan Im sure. And +1 for the Cogage def best bang for buck cooler.....
More then happy with my Spire, best aircooler on the market ^_^
Are the Nexus case fans or CPU coolers?Sybaritic and Cyberdyne systems both sell Nexus D12SL fans if you were looking for silent fans.
Can't think of another reason someone would buy Noctua.
According to SilentPCReview Nexus is still their choice for silent rather than the Noctua, but personally looking at their charts it seems to me like the Noctua would be a bit better, mostly because it uses FDB. Still I have some Nexus fans and they are pretty much the quietest fans I've ever owned and I've tried many, many fans.
Not sure how you make that distinction. Based on RPM? They are low RPM, the are targeted at low noise. Noctua also, at least the low RPM ones are (there are different models). Depending on heat sink you can use any fan really. Usually it's the practice to use a low RPM Noctua or Nexus with something like a Thermalright cooler. Then run them at 7volt, giving you a virtually noiseless PC.Are the Nexus case fans or CPU coolers?
Check their test methods (http://www.frostytech.com/testmethod_mk2.cfm), then cross check their findings with results from sites that use actual modern chips at stock clocks and most importantly overclocked. It is only then that you'll see how how a cooler deals with heat.
