    and...

    it shed about 5-8 degrees centigrade off...both in video and cpu. :rockout:

    TEMP2 = CPU, and heatsink fan for cpu is on low.

    That's nice to take note of.

    seems like another crucial step in proper cooling is not just case fans that just blows are from out side, but fans just inside the case for circulating that air.

    I might try it out and place it behind the 3.5" Cages...should I? My HDD's are in the Floppy Bays, so it won't help them, but it could help my X800XL a bit...

    It didn't affect my temps at all in idle, maybe because my ambient temp is high (I'm in Arizona! Dessert!) but for load I'll check what it's max is..

    No, it didn't work for me for some reason...I put a cheap 120mm fan and nothing works, and I'm too lazy to remove it now.
