    Well last year I purchased a computer via ebay, which is kinda like a crap shoot. i was 0/2 before that ( I bought a computer from FenceWay lol get it, ya they went under for fraud cuz they never gave people their computers) but this one is pretty good except for a video card fan that never worked but i jerry rigged it.

    Anyways the only other thing that it is loud as a biotch. I was wondering what you guys thought of the best silent cpu fan, and the one with the best performance/$ ratio.

    I have a Intel P4 3.06 Ghz CPU on an ASUS P4S8X-X Motherboard


    I would really appreciate it because I dont know much about good hardware, more of a software buff

    You could buy an 60mm to 80mm fan adaptor and put a $3 fan there for a total of $10-15.

    now how much are you willing to spend???? if you really want silent, go watercooling......... but thats pretty expensive........

    or try the Zalman CNSP7000A-Cu......... its supposed to be very quiet (25dB)

    Hmmm, I thought your idea was something to do with chopsticks.

    It works better with your finger, aside from the blood and pain you don't shoot plastic all over the computer...
