the room is pretty big. not for home theater use, its a general use/gaing PC placement would depend on the case but I have flexibility and ts isnt a motivating factor in the case choice. not much moving around, protability is minimal in and our of it...its pretty set right now so not for a while. pr...

so the functional impact of this mod is cooler air in the CPU and the GPU heatsink is set for natural convection of heat rising up? sounds good.

oh, and I hooked it all up now that the YL is mounted on the S1. for normal computing (right now) I am running with just the exhaust and lower intake at 5volts and the Mugen on PWM control. very silent.

something I have thought about but it would be just as easy, actually easier, to drill 2 holes for a vertical suspension. both would require removing the mobo to protect it from scraps. Plus the drive bay has this funky little kickout that you can kind of see in this pic... http://www.nuclearfuzz.co...

thanks. your suggestions are appreciated thats why I wanted to hear your reasoning...to be sure I didnt overlook something. Suspension was my first choice for sure, I just couldnt get it going right in this case. I dont really want this case long term it is really just somethign to play with for now.

I dont move my case around much so its fine. When I do I have a gear grip PC strap so I dont flip it around or anything. I pick it up by the handle and carry it in the same orientation it sits in. The cable management keeps it in place pretty well. The only real danger is if I tip the PC over and fo...

My card idled at 45-47 with the stock heatpipe cooler that had two fans on it.

what advantage would suspension give? foam mounting is a viable alternative and the drive does ot get hot to the touch. Any method of suspension I have tried has made contact with the fans or the video card.

I will try that. it hasnt gotten too warm yet because the egg crate design keeps foam contact minimal and there is a case fan blowing right over the top of it. still...every little bit helps. thanks

Ha, covered almost all the options didnt you? You have GPU fans listed as on Speedfan and 5v modded. How does that work? I didnt think most fans would spin at less than 5volts.

I was lumping that in software control but didnt specify It's actually closer to hardware control imo because unlike the software control, it does not depend on proper operation of the OS. IE, it will keep working even if Windows has a major glitch. good point. I cant edit the poll now either way t...
