Any advice would be great - going to get some pics taken soon, now that i have tidied the cables a bit more
PSU fans don't blow air into the case at all. They are all exhausting air out of the rear of the unit, so in fact your downward facing psu is intaking air from the bottom of the case or from the interior of the case if it is mounted fan facing up and exhausting it out the back. The reason your CPU temp went down is the PSU is no longer diverting the up and out airflow from your CPU cooler robbing it of cool air. Also having you PSU intaking air cool air from under the case it will extend the life of your PSU if you keep it clean. Blow it out once a month with some canned air and you'll be fine.

ROFLMAO!!!!!
That is so me right now!! Yeah, you guys are great. The car has to go in there..... a little more to the right, little more, little more..... Sccccreeeeccch! Perfect!
The rest is Mine all Mine!!!
Spray paint, Power Tools, maybe and external radiator for our computers, a 3hp pump pushing water over all our hardware!! Maybe some room for a solar collector on the roof, the front does face southeast, I think. Haven't been there in the morning yet.

We're so jazzed, Mindy got so much paperwork done and calls made and things that have been hanging are done. I re-plumbed the whole loop in 2 hours. The spin res is fantastic!! It's exactly the peace of mind I need. It worked the first time and absolutely no leaks. Oh & only had to use one angle fitting. That's 3 times now with no leaks. Hmmmm, maybe I should do this professionally?

Well I'm beat, Mindy's beat, the dogs are beat. I'm shutting everything down, I'll put my panels on tomorrow and clean up my desk, tools, etc, etc.

Oh yeah, we're going to sign in time to get the tax rebate, new energy efficient furnace (also with a rebate), new central A/C, new "on demand" water heater (yet another rebate). Then we have to have ramps built, the bathroom handicap equipped & finally we can move in. Hopefully by the end of June.

Hey, has anyone got Avatar on Blue Ray yet?? I read in the news that people are having lots of trouble getting it to play if thier Blue Ray dirve isn't updated. I'm not going to spend $25- on a disk that won't run because they have overzealous DRM on it.

Night all!

Nice house there Bri.
Just a question, why do Americans build their houses out of wood. Its such a fire risk and is just not as strong as bricks and mortar ?

On another note I would say in the next week my current mod will be finished and I will be putting up photos.
I was thinking is there any such thing as like a signature ring here on OCN ? Something where a club of people all agree to place a link from each other members in their sig ?

I had a nice paragraph going and I got a GSOD. I'll have to re-check all my connections in the morning.

So.... DefecT!! Thanks for the compliment. It's 1262sq ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, laundry area off the hall from the Garage. A 2 car Garage, 2"x6" walls, most have 2"x4"s it has and extra layer of insulation & vinyl siding. There's no landscaping at all but three sides of the fence (wood) are also new & as Enigma pointed it out, it has a concrete driveway. It's actually textured and colored concrete.
Our trailer is only 800sq ft., no garage, 2 bedrooms but one is full of our clutter that most people put in the garage, 2 very very small bathrooms & the extra one's bathtub is full of Mindy's old books. It's 14ft x 60ft, so it's really cramped in every room. The house will be an extreme change to what we've had for the past 18 years.

Anyway, they use wood here because it's pretty abundant and houses go up fast. Wood also makes the houses less expensive. Houses made of stone or brick get to be pretty expensive. A brick house the same size as ours would be at least 3 times the price. They use Gypsum board, aka drywall, on the inside to help make it more fire resistant and just started using insulation that is fire retardent.

Signature rings. No, they don't have them here, I haven't seen one of those in quite a few years. Actually since I had my own website, haven't seen one since then. Anyone else??

Okay thanks for the info, thought it would be better to make sure. Yeah from now on i will be cleaning it out every couple of weeks - just need to get some compressed air. Once i get the HDD section removed i will be able to consider a GPU upgrade, maybe to 2 x 5850, when the time comes for an upgrade

Back in Brazil brick houses are way cheeper than in the US.
Building a house US style in Brazil would be SSOOOOOO CHEAP.
They are so overpriced in the US.
But I guess it because Manual Labor is very expensive too(in the US).

My dad build a 4 story house.
Garage at ground level.
Living room, kitchen, Office, and Dining room, restroom at on the second floor.
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, TV Room on Third floor.
and in the Top right under roof(aka attic) was my computer room so I had a whole floor for myself.
Also a huge backyard.
for 250~ish thousand dollars (we paid in reals so that's a rough estimate).
That was around 3 years before I moved to the US so that makes it 8 years go?

Brazilian Houses are made of Brick. But in Brazil we need way less insulation than here because the temperatures don't usually go under 35-40F(In Sao Paulo there is) and never go above 100F. so there was no need for AC either.

The point I'm trying to make is wood houses are kind of unique to US...xD

(I'm in no mood right now to proof read this....sorry)
