It's Bonjour "MES" Amis... Which means "Hello My Friends"

Bonjour "LES" Amis means "Hello THE Friends"... Doesn't work

Actually you could say 'les amis', but only in french, doesn't sound right in english

In english might be: 'Hey yall friends' or 'Hi you friends'

Just a thought.
I tested mosquito netting, which is my favorite. Everything else would block airflow too much, like nylon from that 'wow' girl during lunch. If I'm wrong, you could always ask her for a sample . I even used the netting for the whole side panel when I wanted to have it open but without the dust hehe.

I'm actually not sure about this one



Unless the Spirit is shorter than where the fins start on the TRUE, it looks like you might have to install the TRUE horizontally.

Thanks for the great thread. Might try putting some mosfet heatsinks on my NH-U12F, couldn't hurt.

I'm kind of surprised there almost no mention of Yate Loon fans, I am yet to find a fan that is a better value. Might not be best possible performance fans in the world but they do the job and pretty quietly.

Lots of great info here, keeping it up to date will keep lots of people happy I'm sure.

Thanks

Actually theres a Yate Loon on the middle right. I know other people like it, but other than for rads I think there are better options. If someone knows an uber-secret model (since they seem to be different depending on where you buy them), please tell me so I can put it up!
