The location of the fan was too good to pass up. It directly blows air on my CPU cooler, graphics card, northbridge, and RAM. Effects of mounting the fan:

-2°C load on the processor.
+ 200MHz on Prime95 stable northbridge overclock
+ 100MHz on Prime95 stable RAM overclock
-5°C load on the graphics card
-2°C motherboard temp
-3°C hard drive temp. I don't know how but I'll take it.
+ no noise increase over the other side intake fan.

The cable management is more effective than it appears in the picture. The visible cables are pressed against the window out of the way of airflow. My desk blocks the window so I used it just like the other side panel.
Couldn't you use one of these fans on the inside of the window? I've used them when there was clearance problems. Even My VGA cooler uses 2 of them on one rig. FAN

Good lad, it's amazing how much honeycomb restricts airflow.

I just finished getting it to go in there. I was able to heat up the tube a little bit and squeeze in the sides where it needed to slide by the hard drive cage. It doesn't need to be fastened down, thats for sure. Its in there tight.

Here is a couple of pictures with it installed...

I ended up taking out some of the tool less hardware out so I could install a couple of things in the 5.25 bays that wouldn't work with the tool less set up.
That's so cool! Thanks for being our guinea pig with those led sticks. That's exactly the look I was looking for. I'm changing my order to include those sticks. Thanks rfjunkie!

He's got the dark knight in there. I'm sure a fan won't fit on the inside without rubbin'. And since he ain't racin', he probably don't want to be rubbin'.

Sorry rfjunkie I didn't notice the link you included (too early in the morning). Those might work out. I tried putting a fan on my window but the noise drove me crazy. I need to fab up some 5v connectors out some of my parts to quiet them down. I can't stand fan noise. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! My family says my system is really quiet, but to me it sounds like a hurricane. Especially this HD 3850. I'm going to upgrade everything on the inside when I get my taxes and Ive got the XFX HD 4770 picked out, but I'm nervous about it's noise factor. Do you or anyone else know if the ARCTIC COOLING ACCELS1 Rev 2 will fit the 4770? Thanks in advance

Does that config really affect cooling?
Push/pull fits fine and yes it affects cooling.

Hmm, to be honest I didn't know fans like that existed. I'll put them on my ever-growing list of planned upgrades.

Can someone tell me which wire controls the reset button so I can disable it? My manual is packed away.

It couldn't be more obvious. I must be going blind. Thanks.
