    I do too itchy, but I think I would like one of those to tidy things up a bit. :)

    Well i built the rig up again with the coolermaster stacker (eventually, some irritating little aspects to this case) and changed the Artic Cooling Freezer to a Thermalright XP120 and temps are down a good 3c. FX55 @ 2.8ghz 1.55volts around 44-46c idle // 53-56c load (my room can get warm at night).

    Im surprised how good that Artic Cooling Freezer is mind you - only a few C higher than the Thermalright XP120 with a 65cfm 120mm TT fan (quietish) on it!
    I also put in 4 Vantec Stealth 120mm fans -3 front, one rear (man i love those fans - 50cfm each with no noise) and its running pretty sweet. and the built in 80mm fan at the top.

    Downsides of the Coolermaster Stacker? Side panel small fan fitting, why on earth not another 120mm position? they left masses of room with a very cool mesh idea for maximum heat dissipation -- taking up around half of the panel! .... time to mod that sucker at the weekend to fit another 120mm stealth in there.

    yeah, i wondered the same thing about the 120mm fan on the side. i just leave the side panel off and use the zalman arm and put a 120mm on the side anyway.

    Nothen wrong with having a little redneck in you Prod.Heck,if I had to i could live without ever going to the supermarket again a day in my life.I can kill and dress my own meat,grow my own garden.And protect my family from some druggie tring to break into my house and take something he has not worked for.Or worse,hurt my wife and kids.

    Vapochill is nice, ive built several systems around it. Just got to be careful about condensation.
