Do you use filters on the upper intakes?
MikeV_E36, those fans are great for lower end systems that hardly output any heat like mine. My recommendation would be to replace the intake and exhaust fans with something a bit more higher in speed/cfm. Perhaps Joe or someone else can throw out ideas for new fans. I'm not all that entirely knowledgeable when it comes to good fan selection.

Have you tried flipping the tops fans to intake yet? I'm curious to see if that made any differences.

Good luck

Hmm I don't think that "viva la tacos" is a low end system Before changing the silent ones I would like to figure out which headers are controlled by qfan on my mobo. If I replace all those 3 with high rpm ones I'll be having headaches man. Also I'll try flipping the top ones in this week and I'll let you know the results, the tops and the bottoms are going to be replaced anyway cause their leds got defective.
What do you think of Scythe Kaze slipstream 120mm 110cfm fans? Are they worth it?

MikeV_E36, that fan would definitely intake/exhaust more air then your current one(s). If you're able to control the fan speed with qfan then I say go for the higher CFM fan and just drop the speed. This would be great if you're just browsing the internet or checking email. When you fire up a game then you can increase the fan speed to the monstrous 110CFM

Good luck buddy

I personally use Scythe S-Flex fans, specifically the "F" model. Those are 28.0 dBA for 63.7CFM. I have two on my side panel as intake and one in the 5.25" bays for the same. The top side-panel fan is ducted directly onto my SI-128, such that the SI-128 essentially gets outside air. The bottom side-panel fan is ducted onto the intake of my HD 4870x2. The top has an exhaust Scythe Kama-Flex 80mm running at 30 dBA / 34 CFM. There is another on intake on my hard drive bays. These are the loudest fans in my case, but I can hardly hear either of them during normal operation as they are behind several layers of plastic grating. Lastly, I have a Scythe Kama-Flex 90mm running at 27.5 dBA / 37 CFM for my rear exhaust fan. The HD 4870x2 doubles as an exhaust fan due to the design of the reference cooler. Lastly, there is passive ventilation out the bottom of the side panel to prevent a pressure issue.

What does this massive block of text do? Well, 1) gives my raving support of Scythe's fans' performance/noise rating and 2) gives you a system that I find cools well for me. Given that you have a tower cooler and not a blow-down cooler, the idea of ducting your cooler directly outside will likely not work. Unless of course, you can spin the cooler 90º such that it faces the rear of the case, something I do not believe the A8N32-SLI can do. At least, not without a special custom retention solution from Hueristic.

(I do not know about the Slipstream, but I know my Silverstone FM-121 110 CFM fan is intolerable.)

Slipstreams work really well as case fans, especially if the fan mounts have large openings and don't restrict air movement so much. They don't do so well, though, if they work in high-impedance (i.e., as a heatsink fan or on radiator duty) situations.

EDIT: I was thinking of the S-Flex fans that Blitz so helpfully mentioned, not the Slipstreams you originally cited, MikeV.

Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the info! You're right I can't spin the cooler 90º on that mobo... Ducting is not an issue, the cpu fan gets sufficient outside air from the side panel fan and my cpu idles at 29c and loads at 46c.

The fans I'm talking about are these. They say 110cfm @ 37db... I think they're gonna be loud.. I might need a second 5.25" bay controller.

I knew what ones you speak of. For me, anything over about 28 dBA or so is getting too noisy. my SI-128 used to have an FM-121 mounted on it with the duct to the outside of the case. That was too noisy! Granted, in the case, it was likely more like 35 dBA rather than 39 dBA as with the door off, 37 dBA likely would be 34 dBA in the same situation, I still think it would be too loud. If you go slipstreams, make sure you get fan controllers to dial them back except when necessary. (Or, if your board has built in temperature controls like my AT8-32X did, use that.)

For the record, the reason why I went S-Flex despite being slightly louder for the same speed as compared to a slower slipstream is the MTBF. MUCH longer with the fluid bearing than the sleeve.

To answer your questions:

- The thermal sensor on the A8N32-SLI Deluxe is most likely on the "northbridge" (i.e., the chipset that is located closer to the CPU socket).

- The "northbridge" is the chipset directly beneath the CPU socket; it occupies the middle position in the array of heatsinks to which the heatpipe assembly is attached.

- I will have to consult the manual to tell you which of the fan headers are governed by ASUS' software package. I am almost sure, though, that the one marked "NB Fan" is one of those. But remind me to do so, and I'll check the motherboard manual for you.
