Are you sure the karajan audio module is fully installed and not loose? Are you also sure that your speakers are not malfunctioning?

I also think that most 939 Heat Sinks will fit...so I would recommend you to go for the Thermaltake Big Typhoon or the CoolerMaster Hyper 6+...just make sure they really fit AM2. Well, MadShrimps already tested a bunch of the most popular s939 heatsinks (as I posted earlier) HERE and neither the Hy...

It looks like the Thermalright Ultra90 is the only Thermalright heatsink that will fit on AM2, but luckily it is a pretty solid choice. Other than that, I would also suggest taking a look at the more expensive and harder to find Zalman CNPS9500AM2.

i believe most Socket 939 heat sinks will fit... The only issue you might have is where the clip hits the 4 hole mount, but that can't be fixed with a dremel too if it is in the way. Unless the heatsink doesn't use clips or uses it's own mounting bracket (like the Thermaltake Tower112 like we are t...

Looking at the list of compatable AM2 heatsinks compiled by MadShrimps, they don't have that Thermaltake heatsink listed, but my guess is that it will not fit. Ya never know though, I have been wrong before...

Seeing how the latest CrossFire and SLI GPU's need a stable power supply with healthy rails I believe it was Mushkin's goal to go for quality and performance on this power supply series. These power supplies will not be cheap, but then again the wont have BSOD's when running 3Dmark06 either. I thin...

wow interesting times ahead in psu market :) Indeed. But why so many high wattage PSU's?! I think Mushkin is shooting themselves in the foot by only offering 550W models and up. Those huge PSU's are going to expensive and overkill. Instead of a 1KW, I would have rather seen a solid 480W; much more ...

Good questions Nognir. 1) Motherboards can sometimes distort the rated speeds and timings of certain components when it first detects it in the BIOS. It's not really a big deal, just go back in and change the settings to whatever you think will work the best. But don't forget to test for stability a...

I agree, it is marketed as a quiet case, but I get the feeling their "quiet" claims are more geared around the fact that the fans and power supply included with the case are quiet. You have to remember the Sonata II is still made of plain steel, just like many other cases. If you look at the panel c...
