I'm really liking the "floating" temperature meter, I'm so gonna steal that idea when I have next project with a side window :lol:
Thanks and go ahead and implement my temp meter idea.

Re: Cool and "relatively" quiet Lian Li

It looks pretty... but kinda overkill cooling system don't ya think? And primary web-browsing... arghh.... could build something cheaper, quieter, better, but probably not as pretty... but then again... depends what you consider good-looking. Most of the components are inherited from my gaming rig....

Re: AMD fan control at Techreport

The inexpensive Biostar TA890GXE offers some kind of automated fan controller, though I'm not sure whether it is based on SB880.

You might be able to avoid the error message by setting 'CPU fan speed' to 'Ignore' in the BIOS. Thanks., but I'm pretty sure I tried that--I don't want to reboot right now to check, but I'm almost 100% positive I did. It also seemed the only way to ignore "CPU Fan Error" was to disable pausing for...

The top open frame 120mm was recently added to eliminate hot air pocket trapped on top of the casing. I see that it`s worth having the top fan then, actually I think it should be implemented on more cases like on many recent lian li's. You could still try to remove the intake fan, air will easily f...

That`s a very nice system :) The cable managment is neat, especially for a water cooled machine. At first glance it looks like you could loose a couple of fans, moving the rad at the back so it can double as an exhaust and letting the psu deal with the lower compartment. http://img.photobucket.com/...
