Talking Quiet PSU

Thanks to all of you I get from a noisy psu to a quiet one. Got a psu silencer (kind of a rubber mask) from Overcool and them cut a piece of a AC filter and place it between the psu (with the mask on) and the case. It works very nice. Also change the Zalman 9500 HSF for an Artic Cooling Freezer Pro. Actually I manage to install it without breaking anything and without taking out the mobo. Is so quiet now that I can barely hear it from my chair (a meter or so) temps haven't change much thou.

Thanks mates..

BTW: that AC filter stuff does not count as "moding", does it?

Nice.

Have you got a pic handy? That sounds like quite a good idea. I might buy one too.

It's very pleasing when things work out hay. Good job on not killing anything
