    it just takes a load of time, if you have to work with scrap metal,crap tools,partly damaged,or very old, and low quality scrapwood,like me. all my cases are built out of junk;)

    but they were for free, and i made them on my work, so i even got paid for it:laugh:

    i even have a new one, which i still have to picture. its an mATX benchcase;)

    I have an AC Freezer Pro 7. Does that extra fan you put in there result in lower CPU temps?

    And how have you mounted it?

    My case is to thin to fit the controller in the right place, also having it away lets me mount a push fan : ]

    I could of extended the wires and kept the controller in its stock housing but I didn't want to void the waranty, so just dismantled it and stuck it to my PSU :p

    ( only place wires would stretch too)

    This is the first step into brand new overclocking era. Stop putting fans into cases...put your computer stuff into fan!

    Its basically 2 fans i have gutted i cut the fan parts out and used the outer shells to make a extension tunnel.They are held together wth normal fan screws and wrapped in black electrical tape to keep them more air tight.
    Then i mounted a working 3rd fan to bring it closer to the heatsink this moves hot air alot more efficiently and faster.

    The idea and the method is pretty simple but it works the fan i used is variable speed and on full if needed does bring down cpu temps quite fast due to the distance from the heatsink.

    its an HD4650 512MB(128 bit)

    with a cropped Intel q8200 heatsink... then I double sticky taped a slow moving 80mm fan to it... it is nearly silent and maxes out at 45C under full load (using ATI tool) :toast:
