I would suggest that you move that top fan back over the mainboard. The reason is that it serves 3 functions better there. The three functions are...

NB Cooler
CPU Cooler
GPU Cooler

You may not notice it now, but you'll definitely notice it in the Summer and there is no need for it up front because there is nothing getting hot enough to have that fan over the top of it in the 5.25 bay. You'll be surprised how ,much it will affect your temps with it in the back instead of the front. wink.gif

I'm gonna fix it so that she can have a top fan system and that her cats can sit up top if they wish with no ill effects to her system. It's really a simple mod, but I'm gonna have to do it when she least suspects. My target date is her Birthday which is the beginning of April. biggrin.gif

Can you imagine if a cat just had the random urge to mark the mesh top of the 912 up with pee? eek.gif I would probably be making some cat soup later that evening. I have cats, but I have not had any problems with the mesh top (except when I spilled wine into the case about a year ago). I guess I'm my worst enemy... rolleyes.gif

I can imagine that but those guys are pretty well behaved in that regard. They know where to go. They just like to keep her company while she's on the computer. Her M9 allows them to stretch out up there. Can't say I blame them. Might mount a cat bed up there. Who knows. I'm kicking around a few ideas. Might even line a big cardboard tube and mount that up top. smile.gif

Haha that would do the trick. Similar to turn of the century houses during the early 1900s' to keep birds off the peaks of houses. But I think my ma would be a little bent out of shape if she were to try dusting that and got et by one or two of em. If she were a Raiders fan she migh like that look but I don't think so. mellowsmiley.gif

It is a case thread, but as we all know, a case by itself is nothing. It is what goes in the case that really matters.

Plus, if we just say around all day talking only about the HAf series of cases and how great they were, it wouldn't be a very interesting thread.

Hmm ok you'r right!... Well I would like to go SLi sometime when I have the money. It's modular, but I don't like how they did it. It was a 1000W PSU on discount even though it's even cheaper now then it was at that point, has great reviews and they didn't lie. Did I mention it's silent? Also I will most likely be buying another one pretty soon for my unbuilt i7 920. Oh, and it didn't have any LED lights or painted some other color then black.

Buy another? And i7 920? Do you already have that chip? If not, don't buy it at this point. That socket is a dead end now.

Fron and side suck air in, Top and rear suck air out that's normal setup some change top to suck air in for more positive pressure but i left mine stock works fine.

I'm certainly no Intel guy, but that socket seems to be alive and well as long as they keep introducing Enthusiast CPUs' on it.

I would say though, that if you're gonna but i7-9** series to go with the best one that can be afforded. Gaming, Rendering and Folding all pay better dividends with better than 920. CPU prices are starting to come down and according to CPU mag the 990x retail is down to a grand, which is about a $300 drop from the original entry point a few months ago. @Newegg right now you can get 980 Bloomfield for $580. And there is a kicka$$ deal on i7-950 for $270 and free shipping as well.

Those may not be SB and SB-E chips but i7-950 is still a solid performer for a hell of a price. Had it been that price when I built my system, I might have given it serious consideration. But just because SB-E is out now with IB on the horizon doesn't mean socket 1366 is dead. There are still a lot of good 1366 boards available and it wouldn't surprise me to see Intel keeping that platform alive for another year or so with new offerings. wink.gif

It will eventually die of course, but all tech dies at some point. I'm actually surprised that Intel didn't kill 1366 off a while ago by not offering any new CPUs' to mount to it. That gives me hope that the original Intel Business model was taken out back and shot in the head. I'm not convinced that it has been but one can hope. thumb.gif

I think your talking about case fans. Fans that pull air in and others that push air out. I would just use the compressed air for now, until you can afford the filters. Even the filters have to be cleaned. wink.gif
