Does that mean that 4 fans linked together will add up their wattage, so say they need 10 watts each, putting 4 of them will need 40 watts to be dealed by the controller on a single channel ? btw, the fans are Gentle Typhoon 1450rpm..

looks like the watt needed for a single Gentle Typhoon 1450rpm running at 1000rpm is like 0.25 (0.50watts running at top speed), so I guess it would be ok, to have 4 in a single channel.

yup, you just add the wattage.

they run around just under 1watt per fan so you should be safe with anything, but I would still buy a nice fan controller since it helps with the appearance of the rig. You really only have to worry about wattage when you're running high rpm fans that pull tons of current

Gah, the LD V8 doesnt fit 4 cards in SLI!! it conflicts with the space for the PSU.....its not SR1 friendly, plus if you put a 480 Rad up top it takes away the top bay....

You have 10 expansion slots, of which the top 1 is unused, leaves you 9. I use 8 for the cards, so you have 1 slot clearance for the fitting, am i correct?

yes, on the Classi 4way SLI, you need the last PCI-e for the last VGA but the division between the bootm part and the MB is there, PSU fits there.... damn it..
