    You got pics of your case? Or can you link me to pics of the SFF.

    Wow--I blew my laptop out (nothing special, blew the fan then blew the vent where the hot air from the cpu heatsink comes out) and with WCG at 100% I'm at 65c (with the laptop on my lap) instead of like 85c.

    I think my laptop's gonna be running 100% instead of 40%-60%, hehe

    Hopefully it will be even better once I get MX-2 on it

    Hehe... can't wait to re-add the ol 2200+. Should be a bit more powerful than my laptop, as it's not as sensitive to temperature as my laptop is.

    Damn, once I set it on my table (out of my lap) it loads at 59 degrees! Pretty good for a laptop... so much more work can be done by it now, and it will be near silent! before it sounded like a mini leafblower...

    The innards from another post:
    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1709577&postcount=6139

    The smaller PSU than meant for the case was to allow more space for cold air to seep into the case.

    And the fan screwed and zip tied to the side:

    Mega is a great cooler man, I love that thing.

    I notice that from having the fan on the H50 from full speed down to 950RPM's the temps actually drop a bit or remain the same. Weird!

    It can take a few updates dude. About the H50 certain reviews have achieved some nice temps with a overclocked i7. It's not a bad bargain at all.
    everything at default including fan speed they are 61 and 54.

    Thats not bad at all for a 920 @ that clock. Was the side panel open or shut (that is if you plan to use one at all)? Could you do me a favor and post up your NB temps and how the NB sink feels to the touch? NB temps are the thing that scared me the most about x58. Thanks!
