    Welcome to the Nzxt Case Clubhouse rickss69:toast: :rockout:

    Your 410 is look'in gooooooood! I'm curious if having that top fan so close to your cpu fan really makes a difference? have you ever ran your temps without the top fan ( with your hsf facing horizontal of course) ? Thanks for sharing :)

    T77~

    Thanks! That is the only configuration I have tried thus far. I had to install the cooler before mounting the mb...getting that 8-pin connected was a bear. :p

    Nice case and rig you have there..:toast:

    As for the Q9550, I'm running one also with an slightly OC'ed Sapphire 6970 and have no issues at all with most games on high settings. Even with your SLi 460's it should be no problem.

    Thanks - I had DL'd Steam and tested several games including FarCry 3 which it ran flawlessly...a much better test than benchmarks as well. :toast:

    Finally got my source 210 in and built:

    I'm very happy with the GPU cooling from the 140mm side panel. My previous case had the cards running 10C hotter in furmark.

    Rickss, the trick to photography is natural lighting, and turning the ISO down on your camera as far as it will go. Mount the camera on a surface so you aren't holding it when you take the picture.

    Follow those simple steps and you'll be taking awesome photos in no time! :)

    Hello my fellow Nzxt Tempest members! Sorry I have been a ghost this past year, :eek: I have been very busy with work, school and the girlfriend. If there are any new members that would like to join the club? Please shoot me a pm and I will add you to the OP asap! :thumb:

    Thank you,

    ~T77~



    My Tempest Update:

    So my side and rear Xigmatek's fans have started making the old knocking noise and I am kinda getting over the super bright leds always glaring in my face while watching movies lol. So I decided to replace them with these sweet VERTEX hdb's. Yes I bought them mainly for the color though I have been hearing great reviews about these fans... and I gotta keep with the theme of course. ;)

    The H3 is coming Soon
    [​IMG]
    So NZXT is slowly revealing news of their newest addition to the NZXT family. Some say it is the H3, others say it is a new Switch.
    http://nzxt.com/shhh/
    To the best of my inside knowledge, this will be a small form factor case, in a square shape, with venting along the edges of the bezel. Imagine a bitfenix prodigy, without the top and bottom handles, and cleaner looking.
    Edit:Found the super top-secret design images of it-

    This was a decoy image hidden in the source of the page......

    I'm a big fan of Cougar products, I'v also read very positive reviews on their Vortex fans. They seem to produce high quality components such as fans, cases and power supplies. I currently have a Cougar 850w silver modular ps running in my system for over the past year and it's flawless.

    Love that you have stayed true to your HL2 theme and I always have a soft spot for colors of orange and black.....If I ever do any fan upgrades in the future, I'll be sure to go with those Vortex fans.

    Nice job Sir....:toast:

    yup I'm loving the enermax cluster fans, best fan I had so far. My name is quite sentimental actually. First owned/built pc was a Sempron 1800+ Palermo and I was overwhelmed by the performance. Those procies are legendary back in the day. Sweeps the Celeron D even the lower end P4's clean. AMD earned my respect ever since. I love sticking to my name. Used it on other forums as well. Reminds me of where I first started from :)
