Those pants are pure win against mosquitoes. I usually do my cutting in my garage near the door though, plus there aren't a lot of mosquitoes around anyway.

Question, might anyone know what the three digit number printed on the Yate Loon's means? And does it have any significance as to being faulty or not? Just wondering to make sure.

P.S. I just checked my tracking number, and MY AM2 MEGATRON BRACKET IS COMING TOMORROW!!! PARTY!! I feel like its Christmas.

The pants are also good for airflowing through and they are light, win all around.

I have always wondered what those numbers meant too

Watch out for Optimus Prime

This Enzotech retention bracket that I ordered so I can use Megatron. Except I was totally unprepared to use it. What happened was I mangled one of the screws completely so I had to find an alternative, then I had to find some nuts which don't grab the screws strong enough. So one of the screws when I was tightening the bracket for Megatron, slid up, so right now he is pretty unsafely held there by luck LOL!

OH, and my Kaze 1k is definitely clicking, I just started noticing it...time to replace it lol.

wow you are lucky.
I just installed my wire fan grill for my rear exhaust fan since i cut out the honeycomb grill it was exposed. I decided to connect the kaze to the fan controller while i had the side panel off and man you can feel the torque of it, it twisted in my hand like with a muscle car you rev it up and the car twists from the engine. I also turned it down and did not hear any noise, hopefully the other 2 fans don't make any. I will use the xiggy 89cfm fan in place of my stock CM blue LED drive bay fan. I am going to have like 3 yate loons with no use lol, i'll put my kaze fans set to exhaust on the top since my heatsink is facing up there and use the rubber mounts with the other kaze and put it on my heatsink.

The back of the heatsink and the top fan are so close that i could probably just barely squeeze in a yate loon but the top kaze fan and the kaze on the heatsink should act like a push/pull setup right?

One more thing, i felt my heatsink and it was warmer than it was with IC7 but then again it could have cooled down more since the last time i touched it i was gathering my tools before.

3 hours man, taking apart, putting back in, repeat, forget something, take apart again, put back together. Hide cables once again, it was tough, it was literally a workout for me, I actually broke a sweat.
ooooohhhh....makes sense then, yeah when i probably took the same amount of time to do that aswell...
cant wait to do it again!! yay! lol

you had a thread about it right? i posted my thoughts in there, but ill recap for ya

*ahem* .... ... The Sennheiser Hd201's.
oh forget it, im bad at making up speeches...ill just bullet point!

Good list
-sound is great, very crisp, very clean, low bass (which i like alot)
-long cord, it reaches from my speaker plug in to my bed so i can sleep well at night
-look nice to
-Very light
Bad List
-ear pads are not comfortable...they feel stiff, not cushy, the material doesnt go well with sensitive ears.
i still wear them a ton, at least 3 hours a day. i have gotten used to the not so comfy bit and still like them.
-your ears may get hot when you wear them. but since they are closed headphones i expected that and dont mind
Conclusion
Great headphones for the price, quality of sound is stunning for 25 bucks. However, the stiffness of the pads already has me wanting to save up to buy a new pair of headphones. The next pair will likely be above 50 bucks in cost and will be much more comfortable.

A 25mm fan would be ideal for a case, whereas a 38mm for a heat sink.

As for positive and negative air pressure here's how it goes:

Positive air pressure is when you have more air going into the computer than going out, which means that air will try to escape any way it can from any hole. So basically positive air pressure = more intake.

Negative air pressure is the opposite, you have more air going out that coming in. This means outside air will try and find its way inside the case by any opening available, such as side panels and grilles and stuff. So basically negative air pressure = more exhaust.
i know it was a few days ago. but what way is it that is suppose to create less dust?
