  1. Going to try and keep the case as quiet as possible. So unless there is a heat problem I'll be keeping the stock fans.
  2. Cant find this stepping anywhere. Hopefully it's compareable to the 0610.
  3. Got my lanboy yesterday, decided to take it apart. This is what I see behind the intake fan. http://home.cfl.rr.com/reil/images/DSC00038.JPG Not only does that fan grille look like it would kill my airflow, so do the HD bays right behind the grille. So I thought I'd get my dremmel out. And here is what we have a couple hours later. http://home.cfl.rr.com/reil/images/DSC00042.JPG http://home.cfl.rr.com/reil/images/DSC00043.JPG http://home.cfl.rr.com/reil/images/DSC00044.JPG Now that looks much better, a little rough but it was too much of a PITA to get the cutter in there to make everything perfect. I sacrificed two HD slots for better airflow, I only have one HD now anyways. Also received the rest of my system today that is shown in my sig. Has anyone seen the CCBBE 0617FPMW steppings? A search on google comes up with nothing. Was hoping for a CCB1E :confused:
  4. 7" touch screen for about $250 http://www.mp3car.com/store/index.php?cPat...87f5a29d0fcbd43 Also check out the forums on http://www.mp3car.com for more touch screen info and some very cool vehicle mounted rigs.
  5. Thanks for the speedy replies everyone! The main reason I'm considering the lanboy is its vertical height, it needs to be under 18 inches to fit under my desk. Also it should have good airflow, the two 120mm's and the 9500 all pulling air from the front to the back. Still looking though, can't find anything yet that satisfies me 100%.
  6. This is going to be my first time doing a build in over 3 years, as you can see from my sig my current system is pretty ancient. It is overclocked slightly so I do have some experience. I've been lurking the forums for a few days now and have come up with this.

I was thinking an Antec Lanboy but I'm not sure it would all fit in there with the monster Zalman HSF.
  7. When installing a new heatsink onto a cpu that has had one on it for a while, should I remove the old thermal paste or just leave it and add a little more or none at all? Also how should I go about removing it paper towel, cloth, finger?
