    Your review text is really ting on my PC, I run at 1600x1200 and your text can not be increased in size, I have to drop resolution to read it.

    Please make it so people with resolution other than 1024x768 can read it. ie change font size.

    Good point -- I hadn't noticed that myself (1280 * 1024 on a 17 inch)....

    Make a post in "Site Suggestions & Questions", and it will likely get noticed sooner (and therefore, dealt with sooner). http://www.systemlogic.net/boards/f...p?s=&forumid=21

    I'm at a high resolution and have no problems reading the text. Have you tried in IE to go to view>Text Size>Largest?

    Any bigger text on the site doesn't look proffesional.

    I'm using I.E. 5.5 at 1024 X 768 and read everything just fine.

    On to the article. It looks like a good case at a good price.
    PS seems to be a little weak at 250Watts. The rest of the
    article was eyewash. I.E. Motherboard and other components.
    Based upon the title I thought it was a case review; it seems to have been a complete system review.

    Good article overall, mis leading title in my minds eye.

    I guess I fell a little vindictive today. Again I voted:
    it was alright.

    Bring on a Lian-Li case review. I'd love to read that review and reply. Super super case, PC-60+USB.

    Well maybe if the title said SilentPC System but it doesn't really just say only the case, the key word here is PC

    anyway, I kinda focused more on the case in the intro, but then that's what most people are going to be interested in anyway. the motherboard is good for the average joe but for guys like us I think we'd prefer our own systems in there hehehe...

    the over-all system is great though. It's a lot quieter than what I've been used to, even with all the stuff I have in there.

    The PS does seem weak but it's efficiency rating is supposed to be around 85%, so that's what like 215w?. Most generic powersupplies don't have good efficiency so if they say 400w, you won't actually be getting 400w, but then you guys probably knew that already

    Just to let you guys know. SP does offer a 300W quiet technology power supply for the Silent-PC. I just happened to get the 250W one. I'm not sure if it was clear enough in my review. Of course you can always get your own i supposed, but you can get that with the Silent-PC system if you need it.

    Question

    I would be interested how you would rate this against a Palo Alto PA-810. Because as far as I know that is the only other case manufacturer that builds cases with ergonomic priniciples in mind (i.e. reduced noise level) Most sites seem to focus on the hardcore overclockers but myself (and I must imagine others) want extra speed without sacrificing personal comfort. (And some of us run webservers in dorm rooms/studios/efficiencies and low noise is required for 24/7 operation if I want to get some sleep!)
    Thanks for the Silent PC review I really enjoyed it!!!

    yea hardcore overclocking is really only a minority of the tech community. Most people just want some extra performance but don't want their comps to keep them up at night. It's analogous to cars. There are many people who hook up their cars to extremes, adding new interiors, body kits, performance upgrades etc. but most people, although they want good performance aren't into that whole scene.

    The SilentPC is good for the average individual definitely when it comes to lowering noise. I mean I have a Delta fan in there and the thing is still quiet. as for the Palo Alto PA-810, i'm not really familiar with that case. I'll look into it and see what I come up with. The hardcore guys might not like it because of the higher temps that can be found in it, but you really can't please those guys anyway unless you encase the system in somekind of sound proof shell or something

    Here's their product webpage.
    http://www.paloaltoproducts.com/papi/pc/index.htm
    All their enclosures are high-quality but the PA-810 is their flagship case as I understand things.
    Thanks for the great site and keep up the good work!
    BTW I just bookmarked you guys so look out... ;P
