Watercooling!

Post a picture of it and what is being done for current cooling... no one can really help if they don't have an idea of the setup.

Here are some questions that might help:

Have you made sure to keep fans from pushing against each other?

Are the cables off to the side, grouped together, and pushed out of the way of the air flow?

Is there a definite and close to straight flow of air through your case with fans pushing air in, and fans pulling air out of the case?

sorry i'd give pics if my digi cam wasnt broken. i'll give you the best description i can. ive pushed all the cables up and out of the way of all the fans so they can get the best airflow, and i have a fan mounted on the left side vent blowing directly on the video card. I'm thinking i need to get a better front fan because the one that came w/ the case is ok, but it doesnt blow enough. The cpu fan is sitting right next to one of the side vents and the 2 60mm fans i put in there blow a lot more than the ones that came w/ the case. I'm not sure if i should replace the front fan w/ a more powerful one, or add another fan on the other side vent. This is about to be my lan/video capture rig so its not that important i guess, but i'd like to get the cooling as best i can before i start worrying about my other build.

I too would be interested in knowing what has worked best for cooling a lanbox, i'm currently putting a system together that includes a raptor x, a 8800 gts 640, and a dual core pentium, reportedly some pretty hot pieces temp wise.

I'm currently considering modding a few fans on the top or placing a 120 or something similar on the vid card side window with another smaller one on the oposite window. Any suggestions along with equipment needed would be useful to me. Without studying too hard i think i will have to mount the fan directly on the window and it does not look like i can do that without drilling into the plexy

If you have found a successful cooling solution for the thermaltake lanbox please let me know your results.
