    btw it now has a fan on the bottom just after I finished taking the pics and closing it a friend gave me another coolermaster fan and i placed it on the botton.
    and i've got a question. i dont know but for me the fan filter that comes at the botton is anoying it hits the fan and makes a lot of noise dunno if you guys have had a problem like that.

    ps: that fan conector you see there is for the window fan, because it doesnt show when the side panel is in place i didnt got much trouble hiding it better jejejeje.

    For the bottom fan filter, try putting some tap spacers where the fan screws down to the filter. That's what I did when I had the filter there.

    Edit- Do you have a fan in the 5.25 bays?

    im thinking of putting one there but not now. Gonna buy some coolermaster sickleflow with green leds..sorry guys cant find nothing else than coolermaster and thermaltake here in venezuela so in my preferences gona stick with those. and when I have the money gonna buy a dremel and do the side window.
    Ps 80% of my pc is imported. psu, motherboard, graphic card, and the corsair h50, the only thing i bought here were the memories case and fan. Its really anoying not finding anything here. Gamers and enthusiasts are not a market here T.T

    I just wish they would make a R4 that wasn't 2000 rpms. I tried giving it 5v through the molex connector. It put out some nice airflow and only turned ~1000 rpms. The motor clicked really, really bad though.

    They really only run at about 1835-1900RPM. They aren't loud in my book. But maybe that's just me.

    Their not loud in motor noise under normal 12v operation. They are just loud from the air they move. Put one of yours at 5V real quick and you'll see how "loud" 12v operation is.

    I would rather have a 1000 rpm option so I could put a couple on my Noctua cause I think they produce good pressure and would be a cheap option to Scythe GTs.

    I found that if you don't restrict air for them, the air noise isn't bad at all. But if you say block the intake side with mesh, they make a great noise that's close to that of barely leaving a car window open at 60MPH. :rolleyes:

    Plus, I like the amount of air mine move at the current RPM. I have one set up to suck air off the Mobo/CPU area. The second blowing air directly onto my 9500GT. :D

    I'm willing to bet I've got one of the worst heat problems in my room compared to some of you guys. It's small, almost no ventilation, can't open the windows, PC on 24/7, speakers with hot amps on 24/7 . . . and that's just the basics. If I want to work on any music, then there's a ton of heat from my recording interface and I have to turn down the PC fans and turn off the room fan and the PC is under load and producing even more heat. Playing games has a similar affect, except I can at least keep the fans on. I often have other hot electronics running as well. I'm lucky to feel even a tiny chill in the winter, and in the summer I'm just lucky whenever I don't wake up in the middle of the night 'cause my sheets are soaked in sweat.

    EDIT: woot! first post on page 200!

    They aren't that costly after or before summertime. Although during summertime prepare to be extremely overcharged. :(
