Seems like the biggest problem is the fans lol. The main thing is getting new HDD's those 128gb ones are... old. I would recomend a 1tb western digital blue and a samsung 250/256gb SSD for the OS and any important programs.

Not the fans so much but more the airflow in general. This case was not designed with that new Intel chip in mind. The fans that came with the case are designed to be quiet but don't push any air around so they ones I'm replacing them with are to be quite in windows but run full when gaming as I won't really hear them anyways. As for the drives, I don't have and 128GB's lol I owned two WD Raptors that were 74GB each and had them in RAID 0 but they have since been take out as I don't want to utilise the HDD Cage anymore and they were far to noisy and small. Might use them in an external Sata caddy in RAID 0 for some stuff but they won't be put back in the PC. I currently have a 1TB Seagate in the Floppy bay but I plan to change it for a WD Red Drive at some point and next month I'm getting a 256GB SSD most probably Samsung actually to put my OS and Adobe Master Collection on.

Ah meant the 74gb drives. Man they seem tiny.

Believe it or not they were excellent when they were out. They've lasted about 8 years I think but they were small because they spin at 10'000RPM as oposed to your standard 7'200RPM Desktop drives and standard 5'400RPM laptop drives. They were also really expensive and didn't come in big sizes unfortunately. There still really fast now specially in RAID but of course the size is an issue and they sound a bit like they're eating cogs for breakfast when the read write heads move. Back then these drives were like what SSD's are today, it's funny really because they are actually SATA 1 and they operate faster than modern SATA 3 drives.
