fyi, my fan setup is 140mm front intake, 2x140mm top exhaust, and 2x120mm push/pull rear exhaust on the h50
My CPU dropped by 4c and my NB dropped by 2c. That is with a 120mm front intake, 1 120mm top intake, 1 120mm top exhaust, a 120mm back exhaust, and a 120mm exhaust on the side panel next to the GPU.

ME!

Didn't add anything yet, still planning for some more adjustments.

by front you mean the stock front bottom position right?

i was asking about putting a fan in the front top in the 5.25" bays..

interesting though, might have to play around with reversing one of the top 140mm fans to intake and see what that does

It should, especially something intaking at the top. The bottom one tends to feed the GPU's and PSU more than anything IMO. Adding a intake fan in the 5.25" drive bays will surely drop CPU/NB temps a bit I suppose.

Kind of psyched, grabbing a GTX 460 after school tomorrow. I was thinking about painting the shroud white, but not sure how it'll match my case. There's a pic near the top of the previous page. I'll be using my Accelero fitted 8800 GT for Physx, and I think a white shroud will tie in well with the white lettering on the Accelero. What do you guys think of the idea?

Just saw the pic on the last page, there's not too much white visible on the accelero from the pic you provided so I think the whole shroud in white will stand out a bit too much. Just my two cents though.

It would look nice if you were to Stencil "GTX 460" in white on the edge of the shroud. Other than that, I would leave it stock. That's just me though....you have to like it, not us

That would be a great idea, just like the Accelero, white lettering and black shroud

Hmmm...I wonder if I could grab some adhesive backed white vinyl and use a hobby knife to cut out an Nvidia logo and "GTX 460". I wouldn't be able to paint it on and have it look very good without some amazing masking tape of some kind, so I think vinyl would look sweet. That's a good idea though that I'll keep in mind. I am still thinking of doing the shroud white though. I kind of want it to stick out, but still follow the same basic theme. I just think leaving the shroud black is boring for one, and will make the 460 blend in too much with the rest of the case. I could paint the plastic bit on the Accelero white as well. I was also thinking of changing the two tubes going to my CPU block to white tubing.

My H50 push/pull set up in the upper front bay area, resulted in about a 2-4 degree drop in CPU temps all around. A nice difference compared to when I had it as an rear intake.

Hope that helps.
