    How tall is the Ninja and how do they stack up compared to a freezer 7 pro rev 2 in terms of performance and noise?

    Scythe: http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cpu/026/scnj1100p.html

    The fan is uber quiet as it is a 120mm and spins at a rather sedate 1800rpm at most. It used to be my main rig and the case fans were usually making more noise than the Scythe fan.

    Couldn't really say how it stacks up against the Freezer Pro, never had one for Intel nor a rev 2.

    Will have a measure when I get back from work, the CM Hyper 212 is 8mm taller as was too tall so it may just squeeze in

    Frozen, do you still want the Ninja? Someone else has shown an interest and would like to give them an answer :)

    Did you get rid of the Ninja Sirius, Got a new case arriving today so I can go for larger air coolers now.

    @SiriusB. What do you plan on doing with the thermaltake cooler you mentioned?

    What dark magic have you wielded to bring this thread back from its grave?!

    What a tool I am!?

    Should really check the post date before posting Ehh? Would be a miracle if he still had it.

    Sorry about that guys. I'm not having a very good start in this forum.

    Think most of my old hard disks are flaked out, and if they're not, then I don't have the time to test them right now, sorry. Besides, using old hard disks for data recovery is a bad idea. If the data is that critical, you want a sure-fire reliable hard disk to image onto. If you image a defective disk onto an old disk, there's a chance both could die. You lose everything. Equally, you want to be imaging that disk now, not waiting in the hope someone comes up with the goods later.

    And, to be perfectly honest, registering an account to come begging for stuff isn't a great idea. Yes, I did get the email.

    With a brand new drive costing £30, wouldn't that be the safest solution?

    I'd appreciate if you left that kind of stuff away from my e-mail. I'm not trusting of someone that has just come on the forums asking for my old drives. I have nothing to offer you, either.

    Ditto. I don't appreciate random messages asking for free stuff, especially from 1-post members. I'm perfectly happy to help members out (and have done in the past), but ones that actually offer a value to the forums.

    In view of this recent development, why don't we update the first page to indicate that a forum member must meet one or all of the conditions below, before requesting kit?

    a) Requester must be an active contributor to at least one OCUK distributed computing project, with a verifiable user profile and credit of at least a month.

    b) Requester had accumulated at least 150(?) posts prior to asking for kit, or had been a forum member for half a year, whichever is more appropriate.

    c) A new member who has both the intention and verifiable means to contribute to at least one project, may put his case in detail in this thread, requesting hardware, but may not spam other members' trust email with additional requests; donors may reserve kit for such an individual, pending the adherence to (a) or (b), or both.

    Feel free to add whatever else is necessary, guys. :)

    Or insist on getting a new member's home address so he can get a good kicking for sending spam :p

    Anyone have any old hardware knocking about they no longer need?

    If so post below what you've got, might be able to knock up something good for a bit of le' crunch

    I have an empty ATX case that's free to a good home if anyone needs it to build a rig for distributed computing?

    Am located near Reading.
