1. Well in reality, it seems the case needed it. AT this point I have a new fan controller problem solved:thumb:2

good suggestions are always tailored towards the specific build with some room to grow. this is why any suggestion made w/o asking what kind of rig you have are pretty much pointless and should not be followed
....his "mistake" was providing enough information about his rig that we saw inherent problems that is causing his rig to operate at a sub optimal environment. so... other unsolicited suggestions started pouring in to help resolve the issue.... which was not the original question
in essence, this thread is a GIANT train wreck of a derail that just kept getting bigger and more expensive
I somehow decided to buy 2 92mm fans .... only needed one it seems:mad:3.
Bought a new SilenX 120mm fan.... what do I do with the top one?
seems I can just keep the silenx on the roof instead of the Nidec. ORRRRR
put the SilenX tied down with zip ties into the hard drive cage.. Another $20:cheers:4.
lets see what else did we do, oh yes we closed the top 92mm fan port and changed it to exhaust and now back to intake.5.
turned off the top 80mm fans (can we use these somewherE?6. Bought a Xeon X5660
only to find out that it is not performing better than my 930 at 500mhz higher... Now it seems I have a bottleneck and at a lost on what to do
Bought a new HD fan cage for $60 but hey it will help!8.
We dusted out the case, took apart the cpu, put a new cpu and had fun:rolleyes:

A good thing indeed
. my takeaway were some DT-990s and they're a beast. I should start to listen to prodigy just because it sounds so otherworldly awesome on them. currently they're mostly getting tortured with caramelldansen though, good stuff for mindless mmo grind
Well it could be worse just a few hundred in at this point. LOL yeah Headphones rock. But this rocks too:
