A CPU might not reach 75ÂºC but we've just last week recorded the temperature of PWMs on a Shuttle motherboard in a new XPC hitting 100ºC!

The brand appears to be fairly well distributed in the EU, but not in North America, where search engines turned up no retail visibility.
Originally Posted by IrvineI suspended my hard drive with an elastic band, and it made a HUGE difference, quite honestly. I built my latest rig for silence, and I thought it was quiet, until I later suspended the hard drive. Apparently, the hard drive vibrations carry through the case and essentially amplify them, so removing the source of the vibration will remove the case vibrations.
