I am not really a tech enthusiast, and 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 specs are:
- CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 920 (45nm? 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 18A 12V, 30A 5V, 28A 3.3V, 0.8A -12V, 2A 5Vsb)
The fans' noise is really annoying me, and it has 3: one for the processor, one for the power source and one for the GPU, being the power source one the most noisy. I would like to suggestions for silent cooling solutions that could cope with all these watts . Preferably with no fans at all.
What do you suggest? I am not very afraid of experimenting with this hardware...
