Thanks Tibors!

I have a 7800GTX, and the system is pressing the Truepower with its total 330w (according to a PSU-calculator). So I shouldnt really.

Appreciate the feedback =)

Possible Antec True380S Mod

Im thinking about switching the fan in my Antec 380 to a nexus. Does anyone know if the 380 will be able to handle the heat? If possible it will also cool two harddrives in the lower chamber of an 180.

Modded Zalman 7000-cu or AMD x2 4600 Stock cooler.

If I get the "good" stock cooler with 4-heatpipes Im considering using it together with an 80mm nexus fan to cool a x2 4600. My other option would be my old 7000-cu modded with a 92mm nexus fan. Wich has the best cooling ability? The stock AMD seems to have the same cooling ability as an XP-90, wich...

Did some further testing. I disconnected the lower chamber fan as well as the top one to se how much the case would heat up. Both the CPU fan and the vf700 are at 5v. The lower chamber fan is still there obstructing, and the vents at the back arent sealed as they should be, so the temps should be lo...

Your right, overall system temperature will probably rise some. Trying to make it quieter and cooler isnt really correct. What Im trying to acheive is to even it out some. Basically Id up the heat on the harddrive some, hopeing that the Antec will be able to cool them. Do you think I can do that wit...

This post is actually a follow up on a post I made several months ago, building the very system that I am tweaking today. So if I refer to anything...

SOOOO many people have put arctic coolers on 7800GTXs, that stuff on that website is obviously BS. Get the cooler, no worries. You are correct, I even found a review of the new edition of the arctic silencer that covers the GTX: http://www.3dxtreme.net/index.php?id=acnvsilencer5rev31 On the first p...

Since the Seasonic has it's big fan on the side it doesn't work very good. Wouldn't be a good airflow. If you had a 80mm fan instead on the back or the from like Antec NeoHE it would work if you sealed the ventilation around the PSU-exit. But it can't hurt to try :-) Thats true, it would just get a...

Why don't you get a X2 +3800 cpu? Costs a little more but it's most likely a bether deal in the long run. Unfortunately I already bought a 3700+ since they had a great deal a month or so ago when I first started ordering parts (My graphics card being DOA delayed my system somewhat together with som...
