Just wanted to say..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
That ever since I installed 1 120mm Thermaltake thunderblade + 1 80mm Thermaltake thunderblade case fans my mobo temp dropped from 40C to 33C, CPU temps drop 1-2C, and the overall temp inside the case dropped 6C overall. Prior to installing these 2 extra case fans, I only had 1 80mm intake and 1 80mm exhaust fans. Now I have 3 80mm intake fans, and 1 120mm exhuast fan. Such an inexpensive upgrade yielding in great results.

Thunderblades rock, I just don't like the dba they list tho, its far too low for what it really sounds like at full speed. Been using Tblades til recently I picked up the Silverstone FM121's, and all I can say is wow. With the 9 blade design at full speed I think I could literally use it as a fan for my self if I just put it on my desk.
