    Somehow I'm liking how the tubing and the fan cable form this wave looking thing.

    Chicken Patty despite all the other reasons, doesn't it look better in exhaust? You could try a shroud (⇇Fan⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Fan) to further to increase CFM and remover dead air. This will also result in further drop in temperature.

    I believe that is exhaust, I'm not positive though. I just remounted my TRUE and noticed that my fans (Yate Loons) blow air towards the side with the wires.

    Well, now that the TIM has cured a bit, here is the temps now with the case closed :D About a 8-9ºc over the Megahalem.

    Here's is what mine currently looks like - waiting to get some new fans for the rad but these will work for now, and still need to let the as5 cure cause my temps are a little higher than I want.

    Sorry for the crappy picture, can't find my camera.

    Ordered CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series CWCH50-1 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler

    today from the egg. should ahve it by the end of the week.

    Going on my 920 rig in my specs, but the case is changing. no longer Antec 300, Lian Li PC-K58W will be coming in with the cooler.

    that should allow me to tri-Xfire my 4870s and be decently quiet as the stock i7 cooler is the loudest part right now.

    question - do I have to use the Corsair* fan, or can I use any 120mm that fits? I couldn't tell if it was wired special or just a regular fan.

    I notice everyone mounts this thing at wierd angles. Why not mount it right side up? You know so the Corsair logo reads right?

    Any fan works, a few pages back you'll see some pics of mine with push and pull fans, both Scythes.

    I can't turn mine enough for it to read right, :confused:

    Thanks man :toast:
