    Ah yes, HWiNFO64 to the rescue! Lots of info, I know but it looks fine. Well... the GPU voltage in looks a bit low, at 11.563V, if that is the PSU 12V rail into the video card. Seems to be out of ATX spec. My '760 does not show those voltages so I can't check myself.

    Regarding being patient, believe me, you never gave us less than the info we needed, or ignored requests. That makes it easy, you were not a problem at all. Patience was never a factor, you should see some threads...

    Well, I now have a new configuration, at least partly, after 3 hours of frigging around.

    Removed 3 of the HDD from the case, and then removed the middle HDD enclosure (and don't ask what other major problems I had!!). Still running the XFire video cards.

    For cooling, I now have:
    2 x 140mm front fans, pushing air into the case, both plugged into the motherboard itself. The bottom of the two is mostly obstructed by the bottom HDD enclosure, which has 2 drives in it (with an empty mount space between them). The top fan of the two is not obstructed at all now.
    1 x 120mm bottom fan, pushing air into the case, plugged into the motherboard.
    1 x 120mm side fan, pushing air into the case, run off direct power from the PSU
    2 x 140mm top fans and 1 x 140mm rear fan, all exhaust, all plugged into the fan controller that is part of the Define R4 case.

    Very tempted to change this around, by removing the side/bottom fans, changing the rear one to pushing air IN to the case instead of extracting it and leaving the two at the top extracting.

    More food for thought:

    My CM 690 case only has one large hard drive cage and there is only one internal hard drive in my computer case. To provide better air flow, I removed the drive cage and my solo hard drive sits on two sticks, 1/4" above the bottom of the case. My case has a single 120mm front fan, one bottom mounted fan, 2 side mounted fans, 2 top mounted fans and 1 rear panel fan. The front, bottom and side panel fans provide air intake and the top and rear fans exhaust the heated air.

    Summary: 4 fans for air intake and 3 fans for exhaust.
    My Seidon 120XL AIO water cooler is installed in my HAF XB case.

    Good things come to those who wait.

    If an exhaust fan cannot deflect two sheets of dangling TP to at least a 45 degree angle from vertical, or an intake fan cannot suck two sheets of TP onto the fan intake, then the air flow is inadequate.

    profJim, what is your reference brand of TP?

    Since we seem to be clarifying .......

    Is one to assume this is to be accomplished using fresh off the roll, dry and FMF, sheets?

    Making assumptions can be dangerous but I'm going to assume that certain members have a good sense of humor.

    Q: profJim, what is your reference brand of TP?
    A: Any 2-ply, scented, quilted brand that I have.

    Q: Is one to assume this is to be accomplished using fresh off the roll, dry and FMF, sheets?
    A: Use whatever makes you happy. FMF? flow microfluorometry?

    Parsec said "Filters restrict air flow a lot, at least 50%."
    This sounds high but it might be true.

    The attached picture isn't quite what I have in mind, but it shows the fan's airflow.

    SPECIAL OFFER:

    Call in the next 20 minutes and order my patented, custom made TP Holder.
    This is a high quality tube that works perfectly with any brand of toilet paper.
    The price is only $19.99 plus shipping, processing and handling BUT WAIT!! You can get a second TP holder for free, all you have to do is pay additional shipping, processing and handling charges.

    Operators are standing by, just call 1-555-IMA-SUCKER.



    Please specify your choice of colors.



    **edit**

    Sorry, the response has been overwhelming and the TP Holder is sold out and is no longer available.

    An oversight on my part, I should have mentioned that my TP and TP Holder are compatible with all three DDR modes.
