This has been talked about in the thread already a few times but not sure which pages. Best bet is to do a Search This Thread at the top.

When I had my Matrix with stock cooler I preferred to have 2 front fans blowing in, and not using the window side panel. God that thing produced heat, glad I'm Snorkle.gif it now biggrin.gif
I would also recommend to use 1 bottom mounted fan, the more cool air towards the gpu the better.
The top and back would blow the heat out.

yh not a big fan of side windows, especially when your cabling is a mess lol, but the vent holes are on the side of the trooper aren't very good at keeping the dust out either, n was thinking of putting in a bottom mount, seeing as the stand im gonna build gonna have cut outs for the vents on the bottom and open sides with removable dust filter material covering them, kind of maybe thinking about looking at getting a Corsair H100i but my xigmatek ageir does do well at getting rid of heat, anyone one know of any fans that have similar performace to the corsair af and sp fans, but with LED's.

For the power button, HDD light, and Power light all you need is 3mm Blue LEDs. I got my green ones from FrozenCPU.com for 50 cents each. They are very easy to install with a soldering iron. Just remember one thing, of the 2 wires coming out the new LEDs that you'll need to get, the longer wire is the + positive side.

As for the three tiny fan controller LEDs, I'm currently looking into these as I'm wanting to change these out as well and I believe they are 1.6mm x 0.8mm x 0.8mm SMD (surface mounted) LEDs, but I don't know about this for sure as I have not tried them yet. I do hope to try these out soon.

Hope this helps.

No Spoilers so don't worry. I loved this game and how they only gave you enough bullets and supplies to barely make it through different parts of the game. I picked it up on Friday, day it came out and had it beat by Saturday at 3:00pm. Total playing time for me was 18 hours.

I absolutely hated the autosave bug I ran into after having to update the game. This bug made it so autosave didn't work, manual saving didn't work, and trophies not work. Luckily I kept my console on the entire time so I wouldn't lose all my progress. Oh course once I finally beat the game and shut off the console I did lose everything, but the story was very good and worth playing again.

Hopefully you haven't ran into this bug, but if you have there is an easy fix. Once you download and install the update for the game, load up the game to the menu screeen. Then quit the game and go to the PS main menu (XMB). Next restart up the game and you're good to go from there.

Once you've beaten it, share your thoughts about it, without spoiling it for others of course. wink.gif

very much appreciated! I'll try to figure out the fan controller sizes and pass on the info once I know. Thanks again!
