Robilar, where do you cut off the heat pipe then? where it connects by the heatsinks? I bought the Extreme Spirit cooler to replace the northbridge heatsink, havent installed it yet of course. Prolly when I replace the CPU sink this weekend........

Ok, I finally got around to taking some pictures of my system. They are all in my gallery, but I'll post a few here for you.

Things to note:

The drive bay door on the front is indeed motorized, which I think is really cool, til it decides to break someday.

I have my Spirit II cooler pointing directly towards the back of the case, which required me to disassemble the mounting brackets so I could position it that way, and as you can tell there isn't much room at all to spare between it and my CPU cooler and the GPU.

The orange cables on the bottom are fan power cables that I wrapped up with orange flag tape, which works very well for self-sleeving your cables.

Anyways, enjoy my pics. I hopefully will be getting a new case somewhat soon, as this one doesn't do too well for cooling. I am looking at the ThermalTake Armor, but I can't decide if I want to spend the extra to get the 250mm fan on the side panel. Any thoughts?

EEEk! Do not cut anything on the heatpipes. The entire assembly comes off in two pieces. All you need is some pliers to unhook the pins from the back of the motherboard.

See attached pics.

Oh, glad I asked. Does the other part of this assembly serve any purpose? Like cool the transisters (or whatever they are) that are under the heat sink part?

Those are the VRM's and yes it does. You will need mosfet heatsinks for those. The swiftech mcp21 (two sets) fit perfectly.

Nice Work


I had the thermaltake armor with the a2400 25cm fan side door and it was worth every penny. I switched to the stacker 830 because I had modded the heck out of the armor and I'd had it over a year and was bored.

Its one of the top 3 air cooling cases.

Stacker 830 (not the 832, you need the door mesh for the fan bracket instead of the window)

Silverstone Temjin TJ09 (pretty sweet case as well)

Thermaltake armor with a2400 door (and a couple of extra icages)

How will this work: Thermalright HR-09U Upright MOSFET Cooler??? Nevermind, I ordered one set of the Swiftech Mc21's (since Im only taking off the NB, and not the SB)

So i'll need the rubber grommet attached to the cooler right? It's a little bent up in the packing so i hope that's okay. Oh, and will there be a space issue with having my GTS in the first PCI-E slot? (i'm going to get a thermalright h3-03 plus cooler on it in a few days)

The grommet is sticky on one side so if its a bit bent smooth it as you stick it on.

The spirit will fit fine (I have a 8800gtx in the first pci-e slot)
