  1. As the topic states I am looking for some 120 mm fan ducts. I have seen the ones here: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/ind...roducts_id=1461 I am using this for the front but I am also looking for two that will go from my side intake to my CPU fan and my CPU fan to my rear exhaust. It would be nice to find some like this that mount to the fan: http://www.adpmods.com/case-modding/80mm-C...les-p-1717.html but for 120mm, not 80mm. If anybody knows where to find this that would be great. Thanks.
  2. Alright, thanks for the help guys. I really would like something with a blowhole on the side but for 40 bucks I don't think I will have a problem going ahead and doing it myself. I will look at all the brands that have the design and that is probably what I will get. Again, thanks for the help.
  3. Alright guys, I have some special requirements for a new case. I have an old Scorpio that my 15 month old has murdered. Door wiring is all busted, he always hits the power button, etc. So I need a case that I will be able to lock the doors to so he can not open the door, access the power or reset buttons, and also not be able to eject the drives. To make things even better I am trying to stay around $150 in price but I am flexible. I also have a 3ghz PRESCOTT (laugh it up) running at 3.75 on air with a Thermalright XP-90 so I definitely have the need for good cooling. Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate any suggestions.

    Okay, went from stock HSF w/ AS5 on this 3.0E to Thermalright XP-90 with Panaflo 92mm fan w/ AS5. Killer Difference! Stock: 60 degrees during Prime95 testing Thermalright: 50 degrees during Prime95 testing A full 10 degrees cooler. I am a NOOB so maybe that is why I am so impressed by this but this is a big difference. I truly appreciate you guys in this forum and definitely recommend Thermalright products, though it seems everyone already does. Thanks again.

    Okay, fan setup is planned to be as follows once all parts arrive: Two front 80mm intake fans. One side 80mm intake fan. Two 80mm rear exhaust fans. PSU exhaust fan. Thermalright XP90 HS and Panaflo 92mm fan. I'll let you guys know temps when it's all installed, I'm hoping to keep the temp under full load at 3.2 below 60 degrees.

    Thanks for the help. I just ordered a Thermalright XP90 Heatsink and Panaflo fan. I also got a front case fan seeing as I only had one side intake fan. Thanks again and I'll repost with new temps for comparison in case anybody is thinking of going with this setup.

    Gotcha, I am running stock HSF. If I were to replace that would it be best to remove the processor to clean off the AS5 from it and the heatsink or could I leave it on? Also, what would be best to clean the AS5 off with? Thanks for the help.
  8. Okay, I just put together a budget system and here it is: P4 3.0E Corsair XMS PC 3200 ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe WD 250GB ATA HD ATI AIW 9800 Pro So I started out by going 2-2-2-5 with my RAM timings running at 2.75V Now I am running at 213.51 FSB 1:1 with VCore at 1.3875V and haven't had any problems. Idle CPU Temp is 44C but I don't think my AS5 has broken in yet. Ran Prime95 for 1 hour and MAX CPU Temp was 60C. Case temp has been about 32C the whole time. So my question is where do I go from here? I would really like to have a decent overclock, but with as much reliability as possible. Should I run Prime95 for 24 hours and see if it passes and then go from there? And how is my voltage situation? Look good or does something need to be changed? I really appreciate as much help as you guys can give me as I'm fairly new at this and actually haven't ever built a computer before yesterday evening. Thanks again.
