Default TT TIDE WATER - Good idea?..

MY GPU IS JUST TOO NOISEY!!!! erm, anyway,

here is the site for it: http://www.thermaltake.com/product/L...2/cl-w0052.asp

reviews: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/T...take/TideWater

http://www.overclockersonline.com/in...ticles&num=362

newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835116017

I REALLY hate this noisey fan on my GPU.. I am so tempted to get this. Supposedly it takes up like 2 PCI slots.. but considering I only use 2 of my 4, and that one is expendable anyway (A nic), I am willing to make the sacrifice.

Have you thought about buying an Arctic Cooling Accelero? Much cheaper and very quiet.

Alternatively, for a free fix download RivaTuner and use that to change the fan speed for when your not gaming.

Good old fans. I would get it, but think of how much power it would take to use it. If you have PSU that is 10w's or lower, dont get this

10w's? what are you talking about? I have a 460 watt PSU, with 33a on the 12+v line

The PSU sounds fine.

Again, take a look at the Arctic Cooling Accelero or Silencer.

you make no sense.


i'll use this for chipset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835119080

VGA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118117

and i'm thinking for CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118112

i'm not a noise freak.. just when it's loud it bothers me. These 3 devices are VERY loud in my system.. i've started this computer with all three of the fans off before.. and it's DEAD SILENT! these fans are known for being quiet.. so I think this will work out.

Those huge ones always scare me that they might fall off (i've heard horror stories) though odds are those people didn't do too good of a job putting 'em on..
