    Mods:
    These can't be called mods but, oh well.

    Made my own home-made cheap looking memory cooler. It worked pretty well and cost me 12 bucks, woohoo! Was able to lower the temperature around 15~16 degrees F.

    A therm monitor (little clock on case side) was added to read the memory temperature. The sensor is right between memory Channel A and B. The therm sensor on front of the case (default sensor) is just reading overall case temperature (it's at bottom of case).

    I put 3 fans on the CPU heatsink. This didn't work too well. Got an average temperature drop of 3~4 degrees F.

    This temp readings were done while idle though. I'll try it again under stress later this week and will post pictures of temp readings.

    This are some pics of my new system. Used to have a 3years-old AMD system on this case. Planned on buying a new video card, but ended changing pretty much everything (don't you hate technology...). Did as best as I could to keep things clean looking (with the space I had).

    Oops! Well, this are pics taken during the day. It's just that this room is pretty dark. I'll try to put more lights around to see if the pics look better.

    I forgot to mention on the description, a therm monitor (little clock on case side) was added to read the memory temperature. The sensor is right between memory Channel A and B. The therm sensor on front of the case (default sensor) is just reading overall case temperature (it's at bottom of case).

    Added more pictures of the inside. I did my best to get as much light as possible so the pics would be clearer.

    Let me know your feedback. Thanks

    Hehehehe. Well, how do you think I got off with spending money on toys.
