    I use artic silver on my cpu, damn that **** is good.
    Now it runs at around 38c ideling with just one casefan
    (80 mm Zalman) it is an outtake from the case, got no intake yet... :( After a few weeks use the temp slowly dropped to this,
    at the beginnig before the compound had "burned in" the temp was about 41-42 ideling... Hope to get it down to 36-37 ideling with a proper casecooling. Think that is possible?
    I will never mount a cpu without artic silver in the future...

    The case cooling won't hurt it. With no filtered intake, you may have a bit of a dust problem soon.

    The problem is that i don't have any intake mounting possibility
    in my case, i guess i could modd it and add a fan in the side of it but i think i rather go for a new one instead that allow me to have an intake or two in the front and outtake in the back...

    There's room for a number of holes there. That baby could be whistling in no time.

    My cooling solution will be as follows:

    Side: 120 mm - 75,15 cfm in
    80 mm - 36,5 cfm in

    top: 120 mm - 75,15 cfm out

    back: 80 mm - 36,5 cfm out

    Tot in: 111,65
    Tot out: 111,65

    As you can se i'll have exactly the same amount of in and outflow. Think that would manage to lower my temps a bit?

    Forgot, inside the case i'll mount a 80 mm fan to cool my hdd to.

    The new fans are Zalman and Titan, very pleased with Zalman, dunno about Titan though, hell they are cheap so i'll give them a try... It's the two big 120 mm fans that are Titan...
    All intakes will be mounted with filters...

    About power then, i'll power the two big ones from my psu.
    Think it's safe to power the to smaller 80 ones from my mobo?
    I have run one 80 Zalman from the board without any problems so far, and the board has one free pwr connection so...
    Anyway i hope my psu can stand this, you can read the specs below.

    BTW i'm using only one hdd in this comp now and not two,
    have moved the ibm to my server, so maybe 250W is enough after all... Would like to hear your opinion about this idea. /Thx

    :rolleyes2
