....I still think a new case would have been a better idea between HDD cages, new fans, and the time messing around with everything inside of there. tongue.gif

I'm surprised it's working as well as it is right now redface.gif

Yeah temps area a lot lower already but now I am having a hard time with the new Xeon X5660. It clocks higher but it seems to be performing less than my 930

the one he linked in the thread may have been an engineering sample, but that doesn't mean the one he owns currently is an ES

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

7. Bought a new HD fan cage for $60 but hey it will help!thumb.gif
8.We dusted out the case, took apart the cpu, put a new cpu and had fun:rolleyes:

Ok guys!

So the hard drive Bay came in and I have been cleaning cables for the last few hrs as well as installing.

1. Bought the ex-36 holds my 2 ssds as well as 4 hard drives

2.installed drives moved to the top. Before (Click to show)



After with editing to do. Can you guys please kindly give your input? Trying to make it really nice so that air flow from top and bottom is fine and circulates better.
Cleaned and organized, next step not sure a 120 mm fan will fit in the fan cage should I put it at the end? (Click to show)



Fan placement (Click to show)

You want cool air flowing to components adn warmed air from components flowing out of case, not air blowing around inside of case making all the air higher temperature..

I've made suggestions for a starting point... one being to not load up the 5.25 to 3.5 adapter vent full of drives so it is almost worthless as a cool air intake for anything but the HDDs Your case looks like you could move one or two of the HDDs down into the 3.5 floppy drive bays. This would allow the 3x 5.25 some open space to move air through. The more open the intake fan vents the more cool air will flow into case and to components.
