    I modded 2 holes on the side panel for 2 120mm fans

    I'm going to upgrade to a 5850 soon when the prices drop and I'll also buy a T260HD 26'' monitor.

    As for the cpu cooler, I really don't need a better one, because the temps don't get higher then 50°C under load.

    You say that, but yet you have a ram cooler, I bet your ram was not even warm to touch :laugh:

    Just teasing of course, but in all seriousness what's with the ram cooler?

    I bought used ram for half a price of a new one and the cooler was with it. If I would buy a new ram, I wouldn't buy those with the cooler. Anyway its better then nothing. But yeah, I should mentioned that in the first place.

    You don't have a rear case exhaust fan? That surely hurts your temps a lot.

    I did, but it was a 90ishmm that was too loud, and it doesn't hurt my temps at all. The two 120mm top fans do all the work. I have another 3 more 120mms on order, as well as a 140mm.

    Well, after CP brought up the no rear exhaust fan thing, I started getting bothered by it, and I raided my parts bin for a fan that wasn't loud. Found a Evercool 80mm. Tossed it in.

    Also, I think this is about as much cable management as I'll do until I get my new Mobo, PSU, Graphics card, and hard drives...

    Don't know how much a 80mm moves, but a 120mm will def. keep the VRM's cooler and the entire case cooler, guaranteed!

    Like I said, I have a 120mm on order for that spot, I also will be replacing my case side and the bottom 120mm with a 140mm fan.

    Here's my order from CM's website that I'll be making this week.

    Man, the side panel for yours is cheap. I had to pay $40 after shipping for mine and it doesn't even have a fan spot :shadedshu

    :respect::respect: I have a case I want to work on here that should definitely drop some jaws if it comes out as expected. However can't start on it just yet.

    So you got it easy in the sense of materials and DIY. Just gotta sketch it out and plan it then you are set.

    I have my TT Element S which I plan on removing the 5.25" bay and mounting whatever rad I can fit in the front there. maybe a 120.3 or a 140.2 depending on what fits. Then doing a loop for the CPU. This will be a project but for a dedicated cruncher. Of course since it's a cruncher it'll be an i7 since I personally think that is the best cost/performance cruncher you can build IMHO.
