    Use a image tag, like this

    [img] url to image here [/img]

    Upload your image to a imagehost like tinypic.com or imageshack.us, ect and then put the url in a image tag like shown above

    Yep, what he said :D

    Anyways I'm still researching on whether to have the H50 as an exhaust or intake. I guess the only real practical way is to try them both, and check temperatures for everything in the case. Here are my options, tell me what you think!

    Option 1 (Intake):
    Intake: Front 230mm, Side 230mm, Bottom 120mm, Front (drive bay) 140mm, Rear (2x Coolermaster R4) 120mm
    Exhaust: Top 230mm

    Option 2 (Exhaust):
    Intake: Front 230mm, Side 230mm, Bottom 120mm, Front (drive bay) 140mm
    Exhaust: Rear (2x Coolermaster R4) 120mm, Top 230mm

    Yeap, I'd do just that, test both ways and see which works better for you. Be sure you test idle and load

    I like #2, #1 will make your case very dusty inside if that matters to you. Not sure which would actually be better temp-wise though, you'd have to test it

    It seems that we all ( Lsdmeasap, stewroids ) prefer the exhaust mode , great !

    let's try including the picture like this:

    That's odd, you should be able to view that, your settings have images enabled.

    I see in the Mod panel that you have not clicked the email confirmation to join the forum, this may be the issue? Did you get the email? Look around in your control panel, and settings, ect and see if you can find a link to resend the email.

    No e-mail was sent to me actually. I just checked my email and couldn't find anything related to these forums :(

    That works Jurez, thanks :)

    So you have both fans exhausting out right? I think I'm going to be doing that, I rather have two exhaust than one :)
