    hi,

    i have installed a Zalman flower cooler on 2.4ghz P4PE.
    as i like (and need) a quiet computer, i've set the fan mate to silent mode but the mobo'hardware monitor doesn't like it and detects an error and windowsXP won't boot up unless i "ignore" (F1).

    my main DAW (next to it) is happy running in silent mode (also no chassis fan) with 2.4ghz on Intel D850EMV2;
    so i don't think there's a danger of over heating the CPU

    is there any way to run in silent mode without the hardware monitor error (I.E. normal boot up)??

    thanx,

    Yes, simply go into the BIOS, into the Hardware monitor of the power page and simply set the CPU speed to ignore.

    That'll do it.

    Opus :D

    gabriel,

    the Zalman i have is THIS ONE, the ALCU one.
    the fan (in silent mode) runs around 1400rpm and is very quiet compared to, say >2000 rpm.

    Well, at first when I had a rack mount case the case itself helped with the noise..

    Now, that I have a tower case I use water cooling which is much quieter!

    If I were to get a quiter cooling system other than water I would go for the Zalman as well!

    Coolermaster has some nice quiet fans as well.

    Opus :D
