Good stuff Da_Rude... nice tidy build! For me, using a Strider with the PP-05 seems a no brainer - but Da_Rude is far better qualified to answer that. Thanks for the link to the Chiphell pics, Da_Rude, saw those already. What I was after is the actual measurement between the CPU fan bracket & the shroud of the top out-take fan - I'm not a big fan of guesswork. Shame Silverstone doesn't provide a schematic!
