    Thay are real good. My friend had an prob with one hdd Getting way to hot. Even with the 120mm case fan in front of the hdd bracket.
    And with this it cooled down real good to a nice 21C. even in this enormous hot whether.
    I think you can easily take a few more degrees out of it if you put some thermal grease between hdd and the cooler. And make the contact points on the cooler nice shiny bare metal :dremel:

    And btw thy are very cheap and very quiet. Only 14db :thumb:

    [​IMG]

    And the tip of my uncle to yous wood glue fore over the mdf filler. Realy works Its a lot more stronger and harder.
    Begone painting the case but hire i kinda regret you zing mdf. It is defnitly not like painting metal. A layer of primer ore 2 and then paint a fuw more layers of paint over it.
    Hell no. Mdf is so dry it sucks the primer in and the paint even wen you think you put on inf layers :wallbash:
    So the paint is looking real horrible :waah: It dries un even. O whel Thursday i got time to go to the local hardware store. so ill get some more paint and do it all over.
    Hope it wil work then better :D
