Haven't had a CRT at home since ... since ... 2004? 2005? PS could
be an issue but it's an Antec that came with the case, though I got
the case from a coworker that relocated to JA back in 2004 or so.
Will look at Zalman.
Current mobo *is* noisy, primarily from onboard COM port (which it
just occurred to me that I should disable in the BIOS).
