No and you wouldn't want to anyway. There isn't enough room for one in the top position, but even if there were it would be blowing onto and bouncing off the top of the heatsink doing absolutely nothing anyway so why bother. The lower side panel fan MIGHT provide better temps for the graphics cards, but normally it doesn't. You'll probably have better overall temps with no side panel fans at all and just allowing the natural airflow to draw in air through the side panel openings. You can try one in the lower position to find out for sure with your specific hardware, but the chances of it lowering any temos is about 1 in 100.

A Medium Speed Yate Loon would be a good fan for the top and yes, it should be exhausting eair out of the case.

Alright sounds good and what about the hyper 212 fan, that should probably be pushing air or pulling it?

Buy a 2nd one and push/pull. The hyper 212+ is a awesome cooler. Enjoy it. Dont forget to apply the tim to the 3 lines closest to the middle for best coverage.

Pushing. It's actually a very good fan with a lot of static pressure to force the air through the heatsink fins. The TIM that comes with it is also top notch. It's better than anything from Arctic Silver and on par with Arctic Cooling's MX2, MX3, MX4, IC Diamond 7, the top Shin Itsu, or anything else you can think of. Just be sure you install it correctly. The Hyper 212+ is a Heatpipe Direct Contact so the two or three line method is normally the best way to go. It depends on the number of heatpipes as to how many lines is required, but the 212+ has 4. See the bottom method on this guide. The single drop or line of TIM in the middle rarely works on them.

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=5

That said, I did some experimenting with my Hyper 212+'s and am having my best results using a credit card to cram a bit into the crevices then spreading a light coat over the entire surface of the heatsink base and not putting any directly on the cpu's IHS. Cramming some into the crevices between the heat pipes and the heatsink base surface is the key though. If you don't you tend to get air bubbles that prevent optimal heat transfer.

Hi Guys... im back, she fell in love with the PC.

She said that soon she will create an account here to learn a little bit more about PC modding since she saw what im doing on mine.

By the way, im working on some idea i had... a homemade air cooling upgrade... some kind of "PC Turbo Kit". I think is a cool idea since the theme on the pc mod is JDM. It will not replace the CPU Cooling device but my plan is to make it work more efficiently.

Soon ill be uploading more info about it.

Ohh and, I have a Coolermaster V8 and i have a AMD Phenom II 6x 1090T. im planning on overclock the CPU into 3.6Ghz... Do you think it will be fine? im new here, i dont know where to ask.

3.6 is generally easy with the amd 6 cores. Temp shouldnt be a problem either.

FANTASTIC! So then you both will be a modding duo!

Must be nice to have a partner that has at least some of the same passions you do.

I'm happy for you and your fiance'.
