I have a little old computer that is noisy and hot. Albeit old, it was a top machine when bought and is enough for my needs. The specifications are:
- CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 920 (45 nm? I don't know, but very hot)
- GPU ATI Radeon HD 4870
- Motherboard Gigabyte EX58-UD3R
- 3 x 2 GB of some fancy memory that has cool metal heat-sink attached
- 650 W Chinese power source (2x 18 A 12 V, 30 A 5 V, 28 A 3.3 V, 0.8 A -12 V, 2 A 5 Vsb)
The fans' noise is really annoying me, and the computer has three: one for the processor, one for the power source and one for the GPU, being the power source one the most noisy. What are some suggestions for silent cooling solutions that could cope with all this electrical power? Preferably with no fans at all.
What do you suggest? I am not very afraid of experimenting with this hardware...
