BattZ Posted February 21, 2011 Share Posted February 21, 2011 I just made a Smoothwall server, and put it up on my wall. It's all going well, but I have a few questions. Should the processor be fine with just a heat sink and no fan? since that is the only loud thing about it, or is the only option to get a quieter fan? I was thinking if I replaced the heat sink with a big one, and took the fan off of that one, it might be enough since it isn't working too hard. But I wanted to double check, lest I fry a processor and burn a wall in my house down. Also, is there some way to make it auto turn on, say after a power outage? I just realized that there might be a setting in the BIOS for that, but one of the power supplies I was trying this it would turn on as soon as I plugged it in.
