I finished assembling my new DAW last night and I have a part I need to return (bought a ball bearing "silent" 80mm fan but ended up buying a case with a 120mm fan already installed). They don't take returns, so I have to exchange. I'm trying to decide what I should do: exchange for a 120mm ball-bearing fan to put on the front (Antec SLK3000 case, it has room for an additionnal fan in front of the hard drive cage), or instead buy a second stick of 512MB ram (I don't do that much softsynths, just Battery 2, and I was happy with the 256MB in my previous DAW) or replace my video adapter (I kept the Radeon 7500 I already had). Temperature doesn't seem to be a problem, CPU is running pretty cold as it stand, but my HDs feel hot to the touch. However I'm afraid the 2nd fan will only had more noise (as if there wasn't enough). I didn't even have a fan case in the previous DAW (Celeron 1000MHz, seems it wasn't necessary at the time...) The video adapter is working well, but it had this tiny little baby of a fan that spins like crazy and sounds like a jet plane (of not that loud, but annoying), the Asus AGP A9520TD uses a heatsink in place of a fan, and would enhance the occasionnal game a bit... And memory... well 1GB of ram sounds cool, but 256MB was working well... BTW, I'm running (well I will be once I get time to reinstall it) Sonar 4 Producer, I rarely exceed 16 tracks, run mostly EQ, compressor and reverb. The only soft synth I use is Battery 2. What would you do if you were me?
