    Hiya.

    I'm a proud owner of an Antec Aria :p
    But, in it's current config, it's DAMN LOUD!!

    Spec(it's my second PC, so no powerfull stuff):

    ASUS P4R800-vm
    P4 2.4Prescott with stock Intel cooler with the original thermalpad!! NOW THAT's EXTREME!! :rock: (no OC, since mobo does'nt have OC options :eyebrow: )
    Gigabyte 9550 with stock cooling (to be flashed to 9600, maybe 9600PRO if possible)
    Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 40Gig 8MB Cache ATA HDD (old...)


    What I got/will het for her:

    Thermalright SLK-947U with 92MM Zalman on a FanMate2
    Arctic ATi Silencer 2

    Any thing I should get for it to shut it up?
    What do you propose I do with the case? (I'm not sure I wanna cut a window...don't know why though) But if I do cut a window, I'll instal some etched plexy and a small LCD on it)

    PLEASE:
    Post some pics of modded Aria's so I can get some ideas!


    Cheers,
    Mike

    :hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

    That really made me laugh and cheered me up, great one! :clap:
    But I'm more of a military dude (though, Aria 51 still fit's, as Roswell's a Military base :p )

    If I get a left side panel for my Aria, ther will be some cool stuff.



    Cheers,
    Mike

    "Gigabyte 9550 with stock cooling (to be flashed to 9600, maybe 9600PRO if possible)" Unless you've got the 128 bit version, you're screwed there. As to OCing on that mobo, i have/had one - use clockgen.

    Well, I put a Zalman 7000B-Cu in mine and it kept the noise down plenty. Also, you can change the PSU fan for something a little quieter if you like :) .

    As for the Arctic Silencer, you may have to make modifications to the drive cage in order to get it to fit.
