    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. :(

    I've already got a modded CoolIT Eliminator. I don't really have the money or patience to set up a custom loop though :ohwell:

    To be honest, my cpu, gpu, and hdd temps are pretty nice even in the summer, it's my board that produces the most heat, and then the eliminator pretty much chokes my exhaust.

    I've considered getting a small air conditioner, but I don't really know what to look for in one so I've never felt comfortable spending the money for it.

    best part about that case is I'm pretty sure you can use full-height coolers! You just may have to install the heatsink with the motherboard tray installed in the case. it would have been nice if they made the 120 fan removable with the tray on the back of the case...
