Really?? Mine sucks in from the bottom through that grid in the case and blows out the back. Dust is always gathering down there.

I put AS5 on and I was convinced that it was a bad application so I reapplied twice with similar results. I hardly order so it's not really worth the 20 dollar shipping to Hawaii to order good TIM. I don't have small fans. I had a 30mm loooong time ago but I can't seem to find it.

Is this Foxconn incident the first time because I have heard two people complaining about the Foxconn boards northbridge today. Is this a Foxconn problem.

I've only ever had 2 drives fail because I replace them every 3 years.

The other thing is my drive cage, if the vid cards do come out even longer, how do you take out the cage. I can always diamond dremel it, but I'd have to take out everything and re-paint the case inside so I'm looking at another way. I already have 3 drives and want to put in another 1Tb, use this one as backup, so I need to keep most of the cage. Unless SSD tech grows in capacity and crashes in price the way hard drives did. I love my SSD's they make absolutely no heat.


About Seagate Hdd's. Since the acquisition of Maxtor the customer satisfaction has dropped to Western Digital..

It's not a huge deal. I've had it up to 90C on a really hot day + OC'ing and it didn't turn off or anything. Like I said, it's fine up to 112C.

Just wondering, is wiring the leds (stock red ones) easy?
I am going to get this case for my first build.
Just need some reassurance.
I've been doing substancial research to prepare a i5 build.

Thanks!

Thank you so much for your reply.
Yes, so there aren't any fan controllers?
Where does the led switch go?

Thanks!

Really? I have never had a Western Digital fail. My current drives are about 3 years old now. I have a couple machines at work that I built with WD's in them and they are 8 years old. I have however, had 2 Maxtor's die on me due to over heating.
