That is where i got mine from, sure you can get something similar local to you. AS for how i connected the window, my brother works for a company that basically modifies police cars so he got me some strong double sided tape from work for free. I had to put two strips on each side though as the uchannel is quite thick but the perspex is well and truly stuck wink.gif

Perfect, at will's help a lot. good strong double sided tape I got here enough (won't fix it with holes als original). Now I just have to look, where I can get this uchannel.

no problems wink.gif just try local hardware store or somewhere that sells aftermarket parts for cars. they may have it. good luck and make sure you share the pics when done.

promides - will just take a while (perhaps end of june). will also replace the 2 front fans (now 2 120mm fans from my older silverstone grandia gd-08) - the orig. cm fdans are way too loud and had a bearing clicking.

new fans will be propably 2 x 140mm akasa apache (black) or akasa viper (black - yelow). they are very quiet and do a perfect airflow and pressure.

alternatively it could be enermax fans (not sure yet)

Another question for you guys, i have my h80i installed and have run prime 95 for an hour and temps aren't going above 26 degrees in both the corsair link programme and all cpu meter. now obviously that is VERY low so do i just add my room temp to that then i have my cpu temp or what? lol

No shouldn't have to add ambient air temp as most programs account for that as best as possible.

Sounds like you need to over clock a little more smile.gif

hmm, well if that is true then i am loving the h80i, i have my cpu overclocked to 3.9 aswell so that is great. it was around 26 degrees idle with my gelid gx-7 and around 42-44 degrees full load.

To be honest i was going to overclock but when i started reading up on overclocking on my moboard all i seen where people saying don't overdo it because the all the chips on the board have no heatsink on them so you will fry em :/ getting the fomula v soon so that is when i will really see what the h80 is made of wink.gif

Ahhh I see...I had a 970 chip set board for my Fx-8350 4Ghz....couldn't overclock it to 4.1 Without it not posting..so I opted for the 990 chip set as I found they are much more reliable for the 8 cores....now I'm at 5 GHz stable
