I tried to quote your post but every time I hit backspace it flipped me back a page. Just a hmmmm.
Oh, some more, I got rid of the rocket dock, it doesn't like to play with some of my apps, some of the ones I use the most. Maybe I'm just too old to be switching again or maybe it's something like... If I wanted a Mac interface I would have either bought a Mac or at least a PC that's a Hackintosh.
For Clee and all of you that have your drives at the top of the drive cage. Why?
I mean, I try to put my as close to the bottom as possible, that way the fan blows over them cooling them off. Also heat rises, so if they're toward the top of the cage, then the heat might be higher there and I don't want that affecting my drives.
Thanks for the response Bri.
As for the positioning of the H50 pump, yes, I agree the upside-down placement seems to give least tension on the tubes. Although, there is 1 part of the tube that seems to have some stress, so I may actually play with a 2nd positioning that I think may work. When I build up enough patience to remove the pump & try it again, I'll let you know how it goes.
RocketDock has it's issues, like most launchers and applications. Default always wins in the end. I still use RocketDock, but I can see some of the discomforts.
Regarding the optical drives being at the top, like Rom said, I too have them placed there for cable management purposes, but I do see your point about heat rising and efficiency of cool air blowing across the top of the drives.
Thanks for the responses about the front 120mm fans. I used the ziptie method for the top/front fan, and I was a little hesitant on the outcome, but your response gave me confidence that will help me live with it.
Rock on everyone
