    Ah I mistook it for the DC5700 or DC7200 SFF types. My old workplace had like 50 of those things, bane of my life. Pentium 4's with that ridiculous BIOS option to turn hyperthreading on and increase the video buffer to 16mb :laugh:

    Yeah, I know heat rises, but it doesn't change temps significantly either way (I've tried both ways), and when I crank up those SP 120s it blows a lot of air across the motherboard and RAM. Also I figure the crossing air streams will create enough turbulence to eliminate any dead spots. Under full load my CPU stays under 60c, GPU 55-60c, mobo/chipset under 45c, even with all fans on low (40%). Thanks for the compliment on neatness, this was my first attempt at serious cable management, and it took hours to get it looking like this. Looking forward to more hours of cable-hiding fun when I install the lighting system...

    Added this side fan to my Cosmos with a Phobya 120mm Radiator Grill, a Silverstone 120mm fan filter, and a rubber fan isolator, the fan is a Cougar.

    Not sure what case i'm going with yet, i like the cheap nzxt 440 but it has no room for my monsoon bayres/pump.... will wait a bit and see what comes out.

    I've been a Silverstone freak for a lot of years and hate to switch but i don't see any new things coming out soon.

    Maintenance day! Removed all the fans in my system and replaced them with SanAce server fans, running at around 12.5% - 62.25%. Also moved GPU back into PCI-E slot 1 instead of further down, as I managed to mount my cooler the other way around, and mounted a 38mm SanAce fan to the top of that!

    Safety first, need these fan grills. At 4500RPM they could easily destroy my damn finger.

    Hell yeah big fans for the win!

    Protip: you can gut some of the lesser fans and use them as a spacer, this helps make up for the deadzone caused by the big motor.

    Is that PSU sat ontop of a storage heater o_O?

    Also get those VRM's under water!

    Front has 230mm intake, rear has 120mm exhaust, top is 2 x 120mm exhaust. I find the top being exhaust improves my GPU temps, as they sit directly above my GPU which just pumps hot air around the case. The 230mm does more than enough in terms of intake, but I believe my case is closer to having negative pressure. CPU hits 60 degrees during P95 load (only clocked @ 3.8Ghz), and GPU hovers in the high 60's (clocked @ 1175 core), so I'd say the setup is pretty good.

    Bummer, Ebuyer has M500 240GB SSD's for £80, which is some sick good pricing on that kind of storage. If the EVO wasn't available to me, I'd have bought a Crucial instead.
    I got to say @the54thvoid has a really nice testbench, if I had to choose I'd probably get one like his.

    I have one, but I'm missing the screws and what not. I can always send you it for free if you pay the postage? It's the EK VGA Supremacy.

    Scrap that, got them both running but now guess what, all OpenGL work gets done by the Quadro, immensely slowing some games down. Anyone know how to stop that?
