The Paladin F860-a we received has a nice mix of components for a midrange system. Sticker price is $1975 before shipping, a good price point for an "upper midrange" computer, though definitions vary as components get ever cheaper. The power supply is definitely oversized, but this does allow room for expansion - a lot of room.

    Noise... under "load" at 24" is 53.3 db? That doesn't seem "good" at all. Reply

    The results at idle are the lowest we've seen. I deliberately included the result under load so the impact of the stock Intel cooler on overall noise could be seen (and yes, it's loud). Reply
