I have been doing a lot of encoding since I got my 6 core nMP and I am shocked. I have never used a computer like this. The fan usually stays at around 790 even when the CPU is at 100% and it is barely audible. A couple of times the fan climbed up to just over 900 when the door to my little home office was closed and the whole room warmed up too much. It was still quiet. I have been monitoring for thermal throttling and it's not happened once - full turboboost at all times. So what is the problem? It makes everything else noisy. All of my external drives are just too damn noisy now! Can anyone recommend quiet 4,6 or 8 bay enclosures?
