Thermalright SLK-900A with 92mm L1A is what I am going to use when I build my next box. Does this not work for you? I will be over volting and over clocking as well.

Go to http://www.1coolpc.com/ and click on Slot 1/A CPU http://www.1coolpc.com/slotcoolers.htm . I have the AlphaK7HO-FAN (the HS is the old Alpha 7125). I am not using the fans.

The consensus here from the posts I have read about mufflers is that if you are running your fans at 5-7v you should not need them. They generate most benefit when you have a loud box with highpower fans. I could not resist trying these right now on my current case. I just ordered a kit with all 3 ...

Your system looks good! You have a Zalman 92mm fan listed in your basket, but I assume that will also be changed to a Panaflo L model. Yep. Regarding the PSU, the "How much will a 300W PSU run?" thread lists some happy systems that are more power-hungry than your proposed system, so 300W should sui...

jverheul, I suppose the thermal paste wouldn't be a bad idea, since the SE's top isn't very flat (last I remember anyhow).

That is some good information Dorothy. However....... I doubt that all the 5W from a fan is transfered as heat to the air moving past it. Even a heat gun is not 100% efficient, and it is designed to heat the air passing through it. Most of that power goes to moving the air, not heating it. Most fans...
