Very fine screen mesh from home depot. Held on with duct tape. works pretty good. I still get dust in around the drive bays, though. :(

I've found convenience stores to be a good way to procure some quick cash when you need something very desperately (like a new digital camera). You don't even need a gun! Just shove a Snickers bar in your jacket pocket and there you have it. The cash will flow.

I like the width. Lots of room for pump and res down there. Not sure what you guys do with all that height... Admittedly the airflow is weird in that case though.

Nope, but it does dent easily. Light though, especially if you're going to carry it around. My Sonata with watercooling is a heavy SOB.

Sounds like you may like an Antec SLK3700BQE. My Sonata may be headed down the road when that thing is available without a PSU.

Damn you Tinker!!! (Yelled with head pointed to the sky and fist shaking) I am inundated with Tinkers. I am all for science, but these things are ridiculous. 70 pts for 60 hours of work? Green boxes are the Tinkers. Only the laptop currently has a Gromacs. http://home.neo.rr.com/mjrusso/EM-screensho...

Just use Nanotherm PCM+ and don't worry about it. So much easier than paste, and it works better. They even include a little finger condom for you to spread it around. PCM+ is liquid when it first comes out of the bottle.

I do think temps are overrated. The CPU lifetime numbers are pretty meaningless to me, but the person who buys my proc in 3-6 months might care more.

Update. I got a new video card (Radeon 9800) and a Swiftech MCW50 water block. CPU temps rose 1oC and another heat source was eliminated from my case. PSU fan is noticeably slower now.

Overclocked to 2204Mhz, (Essentially a Athlon 3200+ now)
Temps are in the low-mid 50's after overnight folding.

Pretty much agree with everything you said here. My only mod beyond yours (well, besides watercooling the whole damn thing), was to add a filtered screen to the Antec holes. Over time, you may notice that the 80mm fan on the PSU will be very dirty when compared to the 120mm exhaust. Those Antec hole...
