    yea i don't know y TT didn't design the 7+ for 80mm fans...it would have even better performance....especially with a 80cmf delta lol
    :cheers:

    oh yea btw intel P4 stock coolers use them as well don;t they?

    They didn't use the 80mm fan as it makes it that much harder to clip down / release, try a Volcano 7 and you'll soon find out. :smokin:

    I agree with Wiggo, i'm currentlly running a lump of a Heat-sink known as a "Tornado" and it spraws out making you go at all funny angles to get it on.

    If you have access to a sheet metal shop, it wouldn't be too hard to modify a 80 - 92 adapter.

    yea but from everything i've herd fan adaptors are bad cos the fan blowing into it loses lots of air pressure and teh performance drops...am i wrong?:cheers:

    I doubt very much that many situations would cause airflow to be hampered too much. remember, all fans have 'motor' areas, which blow no air, all an adapter does is re-direct the stream of air, which may limit the cfm of the fan a BIT, but not substantially enough to be a problem. And I passed Engineering Fluid Mechanics! (despite how arcane)

    So if I can fit a 92cm fan on my Volcano 7+, it is likely to be both quieter and more efficient???

    System temps 24 degrees & cpu temp 42 degrees (with fan on high).... Installing rounded cables and more fans next week. (currently only two exhaust) so hopefully that will help as well.

    It would move more air because of the bigger fanblades and also be quieter because the fan can run at a lower rpm to move the same amount of air.:cool:

    Go read some reviews on fan adaptors and you'll find that efficientcy drops with then due to airflow obstructions and air pressure buildup within the funnel.
    Also don't compare P4 temps with that of Athlons as P4's run hotter and that's a fact. Where with Athlons it's good to keep below 50c, P4's are good so long as you keep them below 65c. The temps you'd get with the fan on medium would still be well in the good temp range so don't sweat it. :smokin:
