Re: Fractal Design Define Mini MicroATX Tower

the way the bottom-filter has to be removed from the case should be just the other way around: from the front instead of from the back.

The Ultimate Amplifier PC [upgrade]

the ultimate amplifier pc was updated with new discs: one 128Gb ssd (crucial m4) and one 2Tb hdd (wd20earx). the 10.000 rpm raptor and the 2 data hdd's were removed. the machine is a lot quieter and cooler now. the upper front fan can blow directly to the rear part of the case and about 25 watt of h...

Re: Lian Li BS-08

Taping an 80/92mm fan to the PCI slots would do the same thing at a cheaper price, as long as you have 4-5 expansion slots to spare. I tried this using a 120mm fan: Twist ties, duct tape, blu-tack, and chunk of beer carton :D An 80/92mm fan would fit into the little area where the expansion slots a...

Re: Lian Li BS-08

i once tried a bs-06 in my solo and the temps actually went up! didn't work at all in my setup. If you use the BS-06 in conjunction with open/vented PCI slot covers, I see a real chance of the BS-06 sucking the hot air it exhaust right back in again. How was the airflow (also in relation to noise)?...

very nice work. i like this case and can't wait till antec updates it with usb3.0 connectors. what i don't understand in your work is the mod and trouble to mount a 120mm fan in the front. 2 90mm fans push more air than 1 120mm fan with similar or less noise. or am i wrong?

Nice build with adequete cable management. It looks like you lack of some fans blowing the warm air out of the case though. thanks. in fact there are 4 80mm fans extracting air from the machine; the equivalent of 2 120mm fans. there are 2 fans in the rear top of the case and 2 on top of the PSU in ...

cool setup. i like the fan midship. normally the right-top area of the motherboard is waaay undercooled in a solo. a design flaw imho.

what is that 'backside' heatsink cooling? where is it attached too?
