    I'm unable to mount the HSF towards the rear, this board only has mounts so the fan is either facing upwards or downwards :(

    P.S. The fan is actually just a 92mm

    Buggar thats gotta suk dude is there not a retention bracket other than the clip on you could use as the extra heat is going to kill your PSU early

    He could run that Xiggy passive on the chip he has so he doesn't really need to aim the air from his cooler at his PSU.


    Also, I don't think there's any danger of his PSU dying from the heat as it will be minimal...I do however think he should be upgrading his PSU because its older and may die do to age. ;)

    Nahh I don't as it would have to already of been fitted around the middle copper heat pipe have it facing any other way, I'm n the process of getting an aluminium welder to do this :)

    I find it very hard to see how a 125w AMD 6400+ could run just fine on passive cooling using my current cooler.

    ... And yes my PSU is getting on somewhat but it's fine for now... I'm trying to hang on with expensive upgrades as I'd rather do a full upgrade instead of just a bit here and there and not see any major improvements from it.

    Just so you all know... my CPU fan is very poor spins only at 1300rpm and I'm not even convinced about that, as I'm able to put a piece of paper on top of my Xigmatek and it doesn't budge:confused:

    I ran both my E8400 & E8500 passive @ 3.8 - 4.2GHz and my temps never went above 55'C while running WCG...I don't see how your 6400+ would put any more load on that cooler than either of the CPU's I had running on the Xiggy.


    As for your PSU, upgrade now and you wont run the risk of your aging PSU dying and taking all your hardware with you.

    Buy something like the Corsair HX750w now and you wont have to worry about buying a new unit later when you finally upgrade. ;)

    maybe I'll try it tomorrow when it's out on the bench as will be modding the case to house 2 120mm fan's, 1 top 1 bottom. Also making some holes to hide the wiring better :)

    As for the new PSU I'll look around see what I can find I guess :)
