So I went with the cheaper option. I got a Noctua NF-P14 FLX for the side intake. I don't know why I needed a Noctua, but it's a 140mm with 120mm mounts which is something I wanted for some reason xD...

I've heard Cowon mentioned a lot for sound quality. Some people use portable headphone amps and stuff like that to boost sound quality too.

I have Sansa Clip+ too. The OS is a little bit annoying, in my opinion, but it gets the job done. It's relatively cheap, and it's light and can clip on somewhere.

Thanks :D I'll have to look into the PSU fan, I've kind of neglected it since it's harder to access. It's a corsair HX750 PSU, but sadly not the new type with the 0rpm fan mode. right now I have an...

Thanks :) I stopped the fans on the GPU with my fingers for a moment :o While they do seem to be making some noise, it was far from quiet when they were stopped. I think it's just the combined effect...

Thanks :D One of the harddrives is a WD caviar black, spinning that one down reduces the overall humm a lot, the other drives don't seem to contribute much. The exhaust fan is effectively silent,...

Difference between a "silent" case and a regular case - how significant?

I have a coolermaster HAF 932 and it's quite loud even when it's just idling. Realistically, 99% of the time, my pc isn't doing anything intense so I feel like I'm wasting the cooling potential of...

I don't use the modes either, but maybe you can try night-portrait mode with the flash disabled? Press the "i" button near the bottom left of the LCD, and navigate to the flash options. It's probably...

Thanks, that's very helpful :) 50mm is a nice focal length, even though things can get a bit tight on DX. Have you noticed any difference in autofocus speed between the 35 and the 50? The Sigma looks...

New lens.. focusing issue or user error?

I got a new Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G a few days ago, and so far I've been having a hard time with the focusing (on D3100). I understand that at f1.8 depth of field can be very narrow, and also that...
