Ok, thanks for the info. I should reapply my arctic silver when i switch the heatsink around right? ...i'm new to the custom build scene...

I considered adding the 200mm NZXT fan (I found a Canadian supplier) but given the temps, there is no point. I have the cpu running at 3.6ghz and a mild overclock on the video card and temps are stellar.

E5400 (at 3.6ghz) with a CM TX3 cpu cooler
Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L (F9 bios)
Sapphire 512MB 4850 (at 700/1125)
Mushkin Silverline 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz (runnng at stock speeds)
Western Digital Caviar Blue (1TB) (I have another one ready to install as needed)
Asus DVDRW SATA 24X
Enermax Liberty 500w modular 80+ certified PS
Also added a couple of fans, both Arctic Cooling PWM (A 120mm up top and a 92mm at the rear)

Running XP32 (SP3-Home). I considered Win7 but several of my apps will not run under windows 7.

Nice build there. As I was just saying in the Little Beastly thread, the side fan is a matter of temps and aesthetic preference. For me it was both needed and looks good.

Hey Robilar, where did you get that 92mm fan? It looks like an NZXT but I didn't think they made that size

I noticed a lot of you have the H50 or some other 120mm water cooler, and have to make some sort of compromise to make it fit. I just recently noticed the Coolit ECO C92, & it seems like the perfect match for the Vulcan. The 120mm model on Newegg has plenty of good reviews. Even so, I was wondering this 92mm model was any good.

+rep for getting me started in the right direction. i was under the impression that the 92mm kits were oem only. your link made me wonder about 92mm rads in general and i found this at frozen cpu. i'm gonna try that with one of these fans to cool the cpu & RIII gene chipset.

Hey there, guys. I've been looking at buying a Vulcan for my next PC build (last one was quite a while back - I got it before AGP really moved into the market), and I was thinking that it'd look good with some purple lighting, but I'm not sure quite how the front light works. Is it a set of LEDs I could just replace, and is it easy to get to, or is it something else entirely?

not 100% sure. but dont think their replaceable.. 2 of the stock fans are orange.
and the front leds.

if you swaped out the front LEDs and possiably the ones in fan ( or just new fan ) yeah

Yeah there pretty easy to replace, it's just a couple of orange led's behind a clear peice of plastic; that's if your talking about the front panel led's.
