I had a slight (10%) overclocked prescott cooled by my Ninja with a Scythe S-Flex 1200rpm fan at 11V during games and 5V in idle.
The prescots beats every cpu when it comes to high heat :P

My Noctuas run at 21093rpm according to Asus A8N-SLI Premium :P
Not sure if the fancontrollers on motherboard still sucks or it's something up with that fan

McBanjo, would you agree that of the three brands you named, seasonic and corsair are probably the most reliable and therefore the best choices?

Since I've heard that Tagans has problem with going very warm it might overheat the PSU. Why not simply buy a unit that is stable and silent already? Seasonic, Corsair and Antec is good brands

@McBanjo, like the unconventional airflow design, not sure the bottom fans add too much to the confection airflow. They do, but I can run the computer without them and still be within temp-limits. Just a bit to high for my taste and I can't hear them anyway :) I will probibly create something simul...

I belive that the main reason MikeC measures at 1m is becourse it's the normal distant from a computer to the user. Everything is silent when it's far away enought and everything is noisy when it's close enough

I have to disagree about the functionality. The Decomatic is the only entry with a video card (nVIDIA 7600GS). The others all use onboard graphics. Not your fault.

Some really nice cases there. To bad your Decomatic didn't win, it's definatly the best looking one but I guess mCubes is the most funcuality one.

The fan itself is only 220x30mm, by some odd reason they measure those fans sideways like an old monitor.
With that measurmernt a 120mm fan would be ~140mm

...I think that perhaps if you reversed the airflow it would cool better (e.g. intake is at the motherboard, the PSU is reversed so the fan points down, the bottom fan is an exhaust).

A fan on the PSU/MB wall pointing towards the MB might help your overheat situation. Just a thought

While I agree with Isaac on the top I think your present solution is cooler :)
It's a bit much empty space in it for my liking but it's neat anyway :)
