    Ok, I yanked open my case (the side hinging on Dell cases can be so gay at times, the only thing that saves us are the plastic holders and hold hardware, my, those are easy to work with :D ), and it looks like I'm screwed : omg: . Primarily, I was wrong about the fans. I have a 70mm on my PSU, and a 90mm on my CPU. You're right zero, I do have that case over my cpu, but mine does suck out some air, but not a whole lot, and the fan is still noisey as hell! Also, my case has metal sheeting completely surrounding all of the hard ware (so it goes plastic outside, then metal inside), so that's gonna be a major b**** to cut through to put a fan into. On top of that, right next to my PCI cards is where my extra plastic holders are stored, so I might be able to take those out and put on a small intake fan there. Also, I have some more space right next to my PSU, but before my DVD-ROM, right next to the top of my case, I might be able to put one in there too. In both cases, I'd put in abot 40mm sized intake fans, cause as of now I have no intake fans. Also, about my CPU fan, will I need to install another 90mm? or can I get the Thermaltake Volcano 7+ which is a 70mm fan? Hope that helps a little more, I'm installing MBM right now, I'll get back with the readings as soon as I can. : peace2: Mista K6

    My first PC was an old 386. Then I moved to an IBM K6-2. Did some slight mods to it before junking it and built my current system. Ill tell ya, building your own is a world of diffenece. You finally get to experiance all the OCing and how simply putting something in wrong (HSF) can screw up everything. Its fun!

    I figured your system had that wierd ducts thing that Dell slaps on thier PCs. Ive never played with one, but Im sure that you could remove it easily and slap in a 7+ if you wanted to.

    heh the volcano 7+ should do nicely but if your still having problems make sure thermal grease is applied right then buy a new case and transfer everything
