My 9500 is not making a smooth sound. I'm thinking of replacing the fan, does anyone know if i can replace it with an 80mm fan?

Nice work. Looks clean and quiet I have an identical case. You should really swap out the truepower fan with something else. You'll notice a difference.

Yes, they are conductive. If it wasn't, it would just be a plastic bag. Whether it can carry enough current is up for debate, but it's safe to assume that if it's sufficient to ground a motherboard then it's sufficient to short the pins and soldering on the back side of the motherboard too. The cas...

NO, why?

conductivity is a metal property... unless you have some free cations running around your anti-static sheets, there shouldn't be any conductivity.

its grounding issues.

Unscrew the motherboard and take an antistatic sheet(like the ones that come with the mobo) and place it underneathe the motherboard. Screw the motherboard back in, that includes screwing THROUGH the antistatic sheet.

Walla, you're done and its fixed. Hope that helps

you can connect it to a fan controller or a fan mate. Its possible to set up a two pin connector with a three pin receiver. Just slot the two pins where the red and black wires are directly behind each receptor. That should do the trick. I do this currently.

you look like you have a decent amount of airflow. Thermal paste properly applied? Even your adda fan should have provided enough airflow since theres a 120mm providing exhaust.

The 6600s do support Shader 3.0, but the X700 is the best for gaming. However, the 6600GT can be had for around 160$, and around 130$ if you are using AGP, so I wouldn't rule it out yet. Also, the 6600GT, as you said, is far superior to all of these. I disagree on both accounts. Go to Tom's Hardwar...
