I'll stick with my Noctuas thank you very much. They are the quietest at low speed for the most air moved I've found. Too bad they aren't PWM.

I have the coolance parts in hand now and it looks like the PetraTech supplied radiator will fit along with the 3 Noctua fans. Now I need to find a metal shear or nibbler to remove the ce...

Then I put the vent cover thingy back on. Now I can look down inside and see my passive copper CPU heat sink and it looks cool :) But the...

Help me decide on an overpriced 8800 type VGA card :)

I continue to try to find a justification to experiement with water cooling using my P180B case. Current wishes involve a dual or quad Intel 6850 chip, a modified Reserator XT, and an as yet unspecified mother board and video card. Given that I'm thinking of water cooling, naturally I'm thinking of ...

What I've read is that early 182's shipped in 180 boxes, with black not gunmetal finish. I've seen the gunmetal version.

The 3 speed fans can only be considered quiet on their lowest setting, and I had to go to medium to get the temps down, so I swapped fans. It IS a heavy case, very well damped. Good amounts of room. For wire routing, keep in mind the case has a hole that comes right up from the PSU so you can use a ...

Ultimately I went with a Noctua fan and got it i...
