    Got 2 fans (+psu) exhausting air and temps seem to suffer if the fan blows air.
    think the rear fans restrict the amount of air available to the cpu if it blows, temps seemed higher but 1-2°C. Case temps were around 1°C up. tad quieter sucking as well.....

    Swiftech MCX462 with a Mechatronics fan.

    To date has cooled a XP1700, XP2000, and currently a XP2800+ - running at 40c as we speak - but it is a little warm tonight :hip:

    CPU X-Ice Water block
    Video : X-Ice VGA Block
    NB: DangerDen Z-Block (untill X-ice come up with a NB block

    2x120x38 Fans.

    *****..

    OR a Zalman NB cooler and two 40MM fans..

    OR a Stock Slot A intel OEM jobby.



    I used to be runnig a Coolermaster HHC 002 on one of my rigs, but after i started to go deaf in one ear, i figure dit was time to palm it off on to a relative.

    Sadly i can still hear it, as that relative only lives a mile away.

    they're designed for one thing, and one thing only, to be as close to silent as one can get without having watercooling ;)
