be sure to take many pics of the inside of your chassis when its all done! i could do with some tips on CPU ducting. Does a straight duct tube perform ALOT better than a curved "L"-shape duct?

Antec 3700BQE PSU Replacement?

Hello,

Can the Antec 3700BQE included psu be replaced with a psu with a 120mm like s12 430? because from the pictures it looks like there is only a 80mm diameter hole for the psu fan :/

Thanks

nice. you could buy about 5 of these and RAID them up. i only just realised how incredible this could be. i forgot that RAM is SO much faster than anything.

what kind of transfer rates do you people estimate? surely much more than 3x hard disk in practise; the full SATA II bandwidth :O?

noting the increase in noise from the new Adda fan, would the Nexus 120mm provide equal/sufficient airflow if it was used to replace the Adda fan? or is it not worth it

S12 430 vs Phantom 350

Does anyone know which of these two PSUs has the "cleanest" power? (the voltage regulation and ripple).

I couldn't find any reviews comparing the two and individual reviews i found weren't so in detail concering the regulation analysis.

Thanks
