120mm x 34mm
120mm x 38mm
120mm x 55mm

When I look up my case it just says 120mm fan.
as stated earlier 120x25 is the most common. However if you look at 120x35'mm you'll find some really good flowing fans. Loud, but really good flowing. You'll need longer screws than what the H50 came with to mount 120x35mm fans though. Go to Home Depot and get some 6/32 Thread by 2" long screws. Those should do the job.

And no, the problem was persisting before that too. And it was only when I played L4D 2. When I played MWF2 it gave me no problem. I even changed the resolution to 640x480 rather than 1024x768. And still the same problem.
Last night I was tweaking the cpu again @ 3.6ghz, and had no problem on my computer for a good hour or so. The temps were well under 32C, too.
Until I played about 2 rounds of MWF2 did it just restart itself. And it didn't completely restart, it went to the black screen showing the video card info., but just stayed stuck there. So, I had to do a manual restart and it worked back to normal.

So...I'm pretty stuck on the problem right now.



Hey McLaren...yes, I must say I am guilty of this. I wanted to max. out my RAM memory to 8gb, and I originally had 3x1gb Patriot sticks. Then, I installed the Win 7 OS 64-bit system and decided to look on Craigslist for 2gb sticks. So, I found those G-Skill ones. Both the Patriot and G-Skills are DDR2-6400pc & 800mhz; however, after I researched more after the purchase, I realized their frequency, clocks, and voltage were different...
Do you think this is the reason for the random restarts from gaming?
If so, why is it normal when I am not gaming?
And last food for thought I have is, under the Windows Experience, it has the RAM memory assessment at 6.8 from the possible 7.9 score.

Any help from any of you will be greatly appreciated.
Try using only one set of RAM at a time and see. Remember you are running the RAM at specs where maybe one set can run at, but not the other. Not only that but even though you have some RAM modules processing data at certain clocks/rate while other sticks might have some timings off.

Due to some limitations of my case, I want to mount the push/push fans and radiator in the extra 5.25 inch bays. What is a good way of mounting them. I would like to screw them to some sort of bracket but can't seem to locate any thing that will work like I want them too. Any suggestions???

So, you think it's better to do like 1 Patriot stick at a time? I ask b/c all the Patriots are exactly the same specs, and the pair of G.Skills have identical specs too.

Its normally not so bad when the sticks are exactly the same but having two sticks of 1 gb and two of 2gb is not the best thing to do, although Should work just fine. What are the stock speeds voltages and timings of each stick?

So you want to mount your H50 in the 5.25" drive bays? Just want to make sure I'm understanding you.

not one stick at a time, just one set at a time. G.Skill sticks first, then the patriots.

You can't go wrong with either fan. They both do their jobs great. Those YL's will be quieter but wont push as much air compared to those Scythe's which will be much louder and push more air. It really depends on what you're looking to get out of this. Additionally, you can get a Fan Controller, so you could then run those Scythe's 100% when needed and then dial them down when you want it quieter. Although, I think those Scythe's will make a clicking noise at lower rpm.

You could also look at Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (1850rpm) double ball-bearing fans. They do a great job in my opinion.

. . . the most common of & cheapest route would be to use the bottom-metal portion
of a dead/no good CDRom drv.... some have taken an option of using and modding
a 5.25" Bay_floppy drv adapter, even. Have seen other's who have just bolt'd the whole
setup upon the HHD_top-roof portion of the bay area OR to the bottom of the 5.25" rack
itself . Might be other option's for out there and hopefully they/someone else
will chime in and share Info about's . . . .again, jst my 2 worth of help for ya

{ just 2 add: got to keep in mind the length of the cooling-lines will restrict your option of mounting location . . .}

I did something pretty similar. Check my post here and it might give you some ideas. I ended up keeping my radiator on the back of the case, but you could easily mount it by making an Airbox/Windtunnel thing like I did.

Yup! Don't clean it off whatever you do, its Shin Etsu. It's rated really high, so make sure you take advantage and use it!
