Not until i tear apart my rig for my cooler test, it's too much work getting a good pic of it! The mobo needs to be out of the case. I put them right where the spring and the screw head meet. 3 small washers on each side.

Yeah until you tighten the screw down so far that it hits the base. The washers lift the screw up higher so the spring can be compressed more before the screw hits the base. It works. I have pressure tests that prove this.

On the 1366 model it has these little spacers that determine the preasure on the CPU. If you go to the hardware store and get some identical spacers and sand them down a bit it is essentially the same effect as the washer mod, added preasure. It works too. I havnt lapped mine but I am seriously considering it. I can still feel the effect of the machining on the bottom surface so its not totally flat.

Depends. How much do you want to spend per fan and do you have a fan controller? Cause you won't want some loud fan if you can't turn it down.

Hey Lj lol, long time no see. I do indeed have a fan controller, but sound isn't too much an issue since I'm already using a 1200. I'd rather not use a delta though, lol.

Lol well i've heard people liking the stock fan in push pull...but it has no static pressure.

How about this? Not overly loud and can really push some air too. So much air, that you won't need push pull.

Actually..i'm doing a review (see sig) that includes the NH-U12P, so i'll be able to see what fan combination is the most effective.

I think I could do that, until I get them though, I got a few scythe slipstreams (the 110 cfm ones) and I just put an extra shroud on each side until the panaflos come in.

I dont' know much about static pressure and all. you think the two shrouds on each side with the slipstreams would be better than just the two panaflos?

Edit: Yah I saw you were doing a review, if you don't have an extra noctua fan, I'd be more than happy to send you mine!
