So, if you can control at least some of them, then control the ones you can, and perhaps get a fan controller for the rest so that you can turn them down to a comfortable sound level. After all, you have 6 case fans!! So, unless you live in a really hot environment where it's like 80°F or more all the time, there's actually no need to have that many fans at such a high setting for a rig such as this.
You'd be surprised how hot it is in the midwest to the southwest
100F everyday

C. Any I suppose, maybe not to fat ones since you want to let the window stick to the double sided tape.

Question for you though how long did it take to get that black interior with priming painting etc...? Realy want to do it too, but not sure...
I think I will just use normal Acrylic...it will also save me about $10. Double sided tape...I didn't think about that. I guess I would have to find some quality tape. I may just end up drilling holes and bolting it on. Maybe get some nice small anodized black bolts. I am still looking for the right U channel stuff

As far as painting my case...it really did not take long. I just took everything off so it was just a bare metal chassis. That took maybe an hour or so. Then I used some 800 grain wet/dry sand paper and roughed it up. That only took maybe 15 minutes. Sprayed it off in the shower to remove all dust...let it dry for about another hour. I put on two coats of primer and then two coats of flat black paint. All 4 coats were medium coats. It dried about 30 minutes between all 4 coats. Then I just threw it all back together. I did it on a Saturday and started about 9 in the morning and I was using it again at 1400. It actually turned out really good. The paint is stronger than I thought it would be.

I used indoor/outdoor Krylon primer and paint...it took about 1.5 cans of primer and paint. I soaked the cans in hot water before using them.

Primer - http://www.krylon.com/products/indooroutdoor_primer/

Paint - http://www.krylon.com/products/indooroutdoor_paint/

You can see what it looks like from the link in my sig

sounds like a weak or dead psu.

my dell xps did the same thing with its psu died all the fans turned on but it didn't have the power to boot every thing and run.
