Gentlemen, I've had enough of heat and noise (inc pics!) - Page 3

Generally if temps go up when you put the side panel back on, you have an unbalance - too much CFM blowing out vs sucking in. I'd recommend a side panel fan which has the added advantage of being located where it does the most good, probably over video cards.

GPU aftermarket coolers? Arctic Cooler FTW.

Have you consider water cooling ?? Seems it would be more ideal for you.

Obviously you can't read. He said he ditched the Tricools and bought different fans. I'm using the tricools in my 902 and they are fantastic. imho he shouldn'tve ditched those in the first place.

No reason to be arrogant/hostile.

As i mentioned in my first post, i didn't read too much into the topic. My suggestion was, that if he had problems with heat it might have been because of a bad airflow, hence my recommendation for better fans.

I have had the tricools, yeah. They didn't give much of an airflow, i wouldn't dream of placing my hardware in a P180/182. Not even with aftermarket cooling.

I didn't necessarily "ditch" the tricool fans. I still have them somewhere, just not in the case! The reasoning is that the fan controllers on them were inaccessible, and they were quite loud at full blast without moving too much air

That's exactly my experience as well, glad i am not the only one, thank you.

Also i would like to add an option d) liquid cooling.

You will get some extremely low temperatures, without much noise, depending on the fans that you decide to cool the radiator with. If you want to keep it cool and quiet, i would definitely recommend it.
