But the question is, is the hookah overclocked?

Or better yet, overclocked and silent?

Nice man. It looks very similiar to my setup. :) I do a LOT of case modding at the Local store I work for and for my friends. I thought that I sould live with not touching the case and leaving it as is. HAHA. I moved my system over to it Friday and Sunday I was back in the shop with my RTX and cordless Drill!!! I love Panaflo Fans. They are the best fan I have ever use and highly recommend them to all of my customers/friends. THe only 120mm Fan I like besides the PAnaflo series is the fan made by JMC. It is 25mm thick like normal fans. That is an advantage over the Panaflo in some instances.

I thought about doing exactly what you did dinde with the drive cagte in order to fit the Panaflo in there. I have 2 SCSI Drives that need all of the support they can get. Ecspecially the 10K2, it is 1.6" drive and that it is too close to the edge for me. I have the Saphire which has the heat-pipe on it too. I am thinking about overclocking it too.

One last thing. Do you think I could put the fan adapter that Sidewindercomputers sells on the Alpha PAL8045 for a 92mm Panaflo L and get it to work the same since I have it setup sucking fromt the heatsink?

Oh hell. I have an Enermax controllable fan pwrsupply. It is a 430watt version. I am really thinking about either modding it or getting an Antec True Power 380watt and putting Panaflo Lows in it , 80mm and a 92mm. Think it is worth it? I really hate the damned noise from the rear 80mm on the Enermax!! :shock:

i suggest getting a nexus or fortron (sparkle) 350 watt psu. thats what i have(sparkle), modded, and i can ru nit a about 7 v. works gret, the air mcoming out isnt even that hot. i opresume i can go lower but theres no need, i can hear it anyways.

I really like the single 120mm fan too but I liek the fact that the true Power series is a better power supply. All three rails are discrete circuits from themselves.

Post subject: 

Psyco, from what ive researched, the fortron is the same, if not better than the antec.

Your CPU Heatsink looks like a Thermalright SK6?

I have one of these, can you tell me where you got the spring clips to mount a 92mm fan on it?

TIA

According to the list of his hardware the heatsink is actually an SLK-900 which takes a 92mm fan by design.
