    Ok i have sold the HAF 932 to downgrade to a smaller platform.

    I ordered a NZXT Vulcan for my I7 setup. Right now my I7 is setting in an old coolermaster case :( until it arrives.

    Time to take down my case gallery post

    Using it for your Dominator ram or on another pc? :D

    It's a very nice fan.

    Yep I killed my Corsair fan so I took this one out of another machine and popped it on my Dominators lol. I know it's weird to have a g.skill cooler on them, but oh well. All you can see is the glowing blue fans.

    So far (i've had the case for 4-5 days now) it has been doing a great job. Everything is staying cool, not sure it's because the way the case is designed or because I have 2x 200mm fans pushing air.

    Here are some pics of it at night.

    If that's after only 2-3 weeks, you need to go after the dust in your house. That means there's a lot of dust available to get sucked into your machine. I recently went on a dusting rampage in my house. I bought a bunch of swiffer stuff and a steam vacuum. worked wonders.

    Yea, i live in an apartment on the 6th floor. There is a main road outside. The house gets mopped every day (tile floor). I'm not sure what i can do. I'm thinking it's just from the polluted city air and my smoking. The case is on the desk so there is no way it's sucking up the duse from the floor anyway. I really need watercooling, i washed all the heatsinks in warm soapy water 3 weeks ago, and now they are caked again :(

    I did try using my wife's stocking as filters, but they just got blown off by the airflow.

    Dang man. That really sucks. I quit smoking in my office a few years ago because I started noticing my computers were smelling like smoke etc. Now I just dip when I'm working at my home office, or go outside to smoke. That amount of dust is not from smoking, I can tell you from experience. Our house gets relatively dusty because there's a lot going on all the time, but I don't get dust in my machines at that level. It must be coming from the air or something. I would put that computer in an enclosure of some kind. Build a box around it and put a filter on one side or something lol. Doesn't the dust piss you off?

    Yea, the dust drives me crazy. It's the reason i want to go WC. I actually live outside the city, when i was in the centre, i would get this much dust after a week.
    Whenever it rains here, everything gets covered by a layer of dirt, it's that bad. I don;t think an enclosure would be much good, as i need the airflow to keep the stuff cool in a 35C ambient humid climate

    I know what you mean by everything being covered by dirt. I once visited Manila in the Philippines, and everything there was literally covered with a layer of soot. It was shocking. The air quality there was deemed uninhabitable. Some of our out sourced techs live there...

    lol, no not sure why it looks like that it is clean distilled water with a few drops of dead water. if u look at the pump impeller it's clean must just be a reflection, idk.

    Water cooling isn't much better for dust. The dust just clogs your rad instead.

    yea, i know. but i'd fit the rad outside the case so it'd be a simple matter of unhooking it and submerging it in soapy water once it got too dirty. I would still have to have some airflw in the case to cool my hdds, but it'd be significantly less.
