    Okay, ive oc'ed my xp2100 to 1.82ghz, thats up from the 1.72 it was running, my temp under load is 47C.......idle is about 40C,,,,,,,this is with all panels on, im using the stock amd hsf, my fans are as following

    Rear: 120mm 2700rpm intake
    Front: 80mm 2800rpm exhaust
    80mm "smart" 3600rpm exhaust <--this fan adjusts with temperature and i have found it to run about this on average

    CPU fan is 5100rpm steady

    im still planning on getting a thermaltake cpu hsf.......will my temps drop alot??

    also, my pc already sounds like a wind tunnel, will the thermaltake make it even louder?

    Are ya sure that ya have those first 2 in the right order as that could be ya prob right there. Cool air is drawn into the case down low and the extracted up high (remember heat naturally rises) plus ya should have just a bit more air goin' into the case than what is being exhausted. ;)

    wiggos right, intake low in front, exhaust high in back.

    As far as noise goes, you haven't heard anything yet. Try a Volcano 7+, it has 3 settings, the 2 lower are not too bad and it cools great.

    Not yet that I know of but the 7+ on full speed isn't as bad noise wise as those high speed 60mm x 25mm Delta and Y.S.Tech fans. If ya want noise then try a SMART FAN II, Tornado or Delta EHE and see how ya ears go then as these are basically what's bein' fitted to heatsinks that out perform the 7+. But thankfully high speed on a 7+ is rarely needed. ;)

    How much air does the fan on the 7+ shift?
    I was thinking a nice 120mm fan should shift enough air while making a lot less noise.
    The only adapter other than 60-80 ive found is Here

    Just sounds like a good idia to me, maybe I could make one.

    49cfm it moves but the whole fan shroud would have to be altered/removed as the fan is contained within it. You could always have a side intake fan fitted that blows directly onto it for extra assistance (but I've never had to). ;)
