The VIA C3 is unbelievably bad. The AMD K6-III 450mhz is 50% faster than the VIA C3 800mhz and the Celeron 266mhz is on par with it. How anybody could consider a C3 is beyond me, if you want quiet then use a Celeron or Duron and down clock it so it runs with just a HS.
You could purchase nearly silent Seagate Barracuda IV drives from the outset if noise is a primary concern. I've had mine hanging outside my case twice now and I cannot hear them at all.Coldfirex wrote:highlandr: The HDs still too loud(...)
