Funny story, if I eject the drive, it comes within 1 millimeter of the wall without touching it. It's amazing, and that's just how it worked, I didn't need to adjust it.

Also, thanks for the advice - I cut the meshes out just an hour or two ago


Very nice BHS now you'll have max airflow and THAT is key!

Indeed so.

I really want to remove the mesh over the two 140mm fans at the top, but I can't do it without removing the mobo and I don't have time to do that.

Yes I was thinking of removing the mesh on top and replacing it with 140mm fan grills. But I got worried about the possibility that if anything ever fell into the fans it could damagethee hardware. Something similar happened to me, I dropped a marker and it went right into my side fan and snapped the blades clean off! I was angry.

I'm careful enough around my computer I don't mind there being open fans.

It's sort of like having a loaded gun around (but less severe of course) - you just need to prevent negligent action and you are fine.

Anyone got the arctic camo version? I know some people dislike it, but I think it's the best looking case and most original!



Well, pretty stock at the moment..




sorry for picture quality

Very nice! I do like the white camo because it would look great with black and white components (switching the blue leds to white would be even better!) Good thing you window is tinted because your cable management scares me a little. You should take some time to re-route some of those cables and make your sweet camo'ed Tempest even better!

It's alright, not necessarily my thing - I was obsessed with camo when I was young but I am not into it so much anymore. To each is own.

Awesome.

I was about to say that RAM doesn't get all that hot, but OCz DDR2 does... I have a 2gb kit of OCz DDR2 1066 and it ran much hotter than my G.Skill. Too bad RAM doesn't have a temperature sensor...

I don't think I'd buy a RAM fan but I'd use one. Hehe. My Southbridge is the only thing in my whole case that really gets excessively warm. I do live by the "You can never have too much air" rule, so yeah... The next 20 I spend on my computer will probably be mosfet heatsinks. My mosfets are bare.

I still need a new CPU most of all, but I am guessing it will be a long time. Maybe I'll get a crippled quad or something. Lately my interest has shifted more to the American hobby of guns. I still like computers and all, but guns retain a lot more value than computer parts if you take care of them. Plus there's no better feeling than firing a gun.
