    It's not so much the sitting it on carpet that's the problem it's people / pets walking by it that'll kick up the dust that'll be sucked into it but as you say it's only short term

    I got my bolt kit for my NB Block!!!! took swiftech 3 weeks to finally respond to my countless emails and since the lack of communication they sent out a bolt kit priority and i got it yesterday. I might install today if i get some time to run to the hardware store for some more tubing.

    :laugh:

    No, they just sent the side window and new fans in that box.

    For a moment I thought they had sent me a case when the UPS guy first showed up.

    Edit- Moved my "High Performance" 120mm fan to the back of the the case for exhaust, as an intake fan it works great, until you want to put a grill of any kind in front of it and it makes the sound like you left a car window barely open at 60MPH.

    Eh. I keep the IDE cable around for formatting old drives/one of my 160GB drives is IDE.

    I need to order new hard drives, but as I just moved recently... I've been lazy about it.

    I was kidding so no offense, but IDE has plagued motherboards for too long.

    I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just saying why I'm using something so "outdated".

    Ok, so I finally finished the last parts of cutting into my case. First I cut out the back fan gill for improved airflow and noise. I also added some new stuff and gave Freeman's Box a nice upgrade.:)
    [​IMG]

    Next I cut out the bottom hole so I could flip the psu (I've been wanting to do this for a long time!).

    Do you see the face?;)
    [​IMG]

    I installed an Aerocool Touch 2000 to keep the noise down while my women is home because she is always nagging about the computer being to loud:p, then crank them up for gaming and benching.

    I added another GTX 285 :toast: and cleaned up my cable management. So what you do ya guys think?

    If your woman thinks your PC's too loud, she should vacuum more often :D

    Anyway, a little twist here:

    I added a 80mm fan right there and did the same wiring jig. Helped pull cool air in to the cpu's heatsink, and then out the back.

    Nice little mod, but that plastic exterior is damn hard. Needed to break out the dremel.

    Well, I replaced the GPU heatsink since it's had 2 RROD's, and with this sink the DVD drive will be mounted externally... Not exactly sure how anyway :D
