    Man, if I knew buying a manufactured PC would cost me so much grief, I never would've done it :cry: , ah well. First things first, motherboardmonitor does not work on my comp, probably cause it's a Dell, and te BIOS suck, and the sensors, if there are any, cant be reached. Right now my curent fan is Datech (anyone heard of it) 90mm on my CPU, it keeps the thing pretty damn cool, I put a themometer by the outtake, and it read about 26 degrees C while I'm sitting here surfing the net. That seems pretty low to me, and I'm gonna have an air conditioner in here soon, so the noise from the fan wont bother me. However, I'm thinking of getting a P4 2.6 ghz processor w/ a 512kb L2 cache towards the end of the summer (I think that's the highest a 400mhz board supports), if I do, I'll get a Thermaltake Volcano 7+ to go with it :thumb: . As for the intake fans. I think one right next to teh PCI cards would work, I can take out those plastic holders, and a 60mm would fit in perfectly. Now I have some questions tho. Do I jsut cut a hole in the case and slap it in? Or is there some specific things I need to do when putting it in my case? How do I secure the fan to the case, do i have to drill holes for the screws? What kind of power supply and wires do I need, and I how do I hook em up? I'm pretty new to comps, so any help with this would be great, I dont wanna buy a fan before I know if I can install it well or if my mobo and PSU have the required outputs to acquire it. Thx for any help : peace2: Mista K6
