Tried everything, my temps are absurd! - Page 15

Or you can buy 2 used modern mid-towers and join them, then call it a day
I pulled off a 360+240+120
Might even fit a 360 at the other portion but it's pointless biggrin.gif

however, if you look at todays market, you'll find that a "mid" ATX like the Fractal Arc can actually house 2x 120.2 and most full ATX towers have no problem with 2x 120.3 ... except if it is one of those multi-bling, multi-led, looking like a crossover between manga cartoon hero in medieval transformer knight armour & a cheap knock-off of the millenium falcon

Lol bought my in laws one of those. They're convinced its Alienware! Lol boy was that thing cheap. I think 19.99 WITH a psu haha

type everything for a post in notepad. its impossible to delete if you save after every paragraph you type wink.gif also, use a mouse instead of the mouse pad.

*EDIT* - lmao at that description of new 'gaming' cases
my 9 year old nzxt zero case was built for quiet air cooling. i had to cut the rear panel to put an h100 on the rear 2x 120 fans. cheap water cooling cases arent good for my set-up preferences. expensive water cooling cases arent good for my wallet. mod what i have to work and call it all good.

That is EXACTLY why I'm still using it LOL. Case always seems to come last tongue.gif in all honest though, it's now starting to look beat oh and showing its age. Buttons are showing white etc. it's time. And I'm using a thick 360 and 240. Perhaps you can fit that in "some" mid towers but definately not "that" mid tower lol. It's a lian Li PC60B I think.

Let me get some pics up that show the rads

Had to drill and cut so many holes omg. Must buy a Dremel and sooooon! Snips and a cutting wheel just isn't up to the task lol. God forbid I have to chop up one of these larger cases though
