thats precisly the problem. heat from gpu/mobo goes up, through the cpu, upping the ambient temp near the cpu, and therefore making temps higher.

I've had a few dilemmas in having a non conventional air cycle, however, I just cannot argue with results. CPU, temps are lower. the rest of the temp are from new components (295 76max, mobo nb/46 max)

When I HAVe some time in the summer, i'll reverse it to waht you guys do and post the results. I also want to test out the issue with pressure. IT seems in my rocketfish, negative pressure did not yeild lower temps.

Looks like Newegg has pulled the plug on the free-shipping promo for this case.

ProVantage raised their price by $11 on the case, but they're still cheaper than the Egg; shipping costs are roughly the same for each.

Anyone seen better pricing recently?

I might have time at some point to switch them around, also im going for positive pressure soon hopefully to keep the dust down. Basically in an engineering sense, mass flow in equals mass flow out in an ideal case. For positive pressure i need to raise the cfm in.

right now i have 70 cfm+ 40 cfm + 40 cmf out which is 150 cfm out
in is 40+40+40 which is 120 cfm

this at college equals lots of dust so if i put the top two fans to intakes that would help with the pressure but it would also cause more dust to get in since all intakes should have filters on them

Hey all,

I have been watching this thread for quite some time now, I even went through all the pages , not thoroughly after a while though . Awesome systems you all have, but its time to put mine up there with the rest . Its not modded and I dont know if I am going to, I would love a mat black interior and maybe some touch up for the scratches that are on the case though.

I got one question, mostly if it would be a good idea to do. I wanted to get 6 Yate Loon D12SL-12's, putting two in the front, one on the bottom, two on the top and one on the back, with a Zalman ZM-MFC1 Plus Fancontroller. To make my airflow better but also keeping it at a nice quiet level. Would this be good or should I rather get some different fans for some higher cfm output?

Thanks in advance,

Tinsley

Edit: Here another pic, could only add 5 attachments.

well with our case and yate loons, you should cut out the honeycomb grills and put those circle grills, it will make them much quieter. I have 4 high speed yate loons and they give excellent airflow but when i had the stock grills they were very very loud but after i completely cut out the grills i only hear the air movement and it is not that loud.

it took me some time to decides whether to get TA-M11 or 690 , i am thankful to all those who suggested 690 and all those who showed their setup of 690

i had to pull out my board 5 times facing a different issue every time like loose case screw , unbalance etc ..in the end when i installed everything on board i faced a huge problem , my IDE connector pins on board got tilted and i had to disassemble every single thing on board because i have only 1 IDE connect and its direction is horizontal so i got totally F'ud up by that .....it took me 6-7 long exhausting hours to fully make my system to work and to my surprise i booted the OS already installed which i wasn't expecting ...i will look up for some addons later if i have some thing in my pocket to spend on it

2. Card and DVD-RW






3. The Inside








4. My Workspace
