    I modded the case out a little to accommodate better cooling for a dual 6800 ultra, 3 hard drive, FX55 system without it bordering on annoying.

    Right now, ive 2 x 120mm 50cfm/26db Vantec Stealth fans on the front and 1 (slightly louder TT fan 30db 70cfm) at the very bottom of these three, pulling in air (yes the case can accommodate 3x120mm fans at the front).

    Ive 2 120mm Vantec Stealth fans on the side after removing and modding the 80mm catch.

    ive 1x 120mm TT (70cfm) fan on the rear blowing out, and another TT 1x120mm 70cfm fan on the Thermalright XP120 heatsink.

    Top, ive a 80mm silent fan (25cfm sub 20db), blowing out.

    All in all, the most noise is coming from the 6800 ultras _and the tiny little 8000rpm NB fan on the Asus A8N SLI deluxe), The ultras in DOS are very loud, but once it hits windows it settles to very good noise levels indeed.

    Temps of the mobo are 30-35c over room ambient of 23-26c and the Ultras idle at 50c/65c idle/load and the FX55 @ 2.8ghz with 1.55volts is 43c/53c idle/load.

    1.55 volts....how "high" is that for an Athlon FX? (I know in intel terms it isn't much at all, but aren't AMD's lower volts?)

    Hehehe, I'm sure that boosted the benchmarking points significantly. I mean, if your breath was within range of the rig, it would have cooled it with all the alcholic vapour in there. :rofl: :rofl:
