Re: P183 HDD cage fan also in P180 Mini?

I think it may fit. Because in the current situation it fits pretty darn good. There is about 2mm space between the fan and the accelero.

But i dont have a mount for the fan so i need to have something i can remake.

Re: Advice on a small but well performing AM3/AM2 cooler

A Xigmatek HDT-S1283 pointing towards the top of the motherboard. Hr05 on the Northbridge and a Scythe GT on the xigmatek.

GT's have a good backpressure so it will move some air through the HR-05 (and even more if you make a duct).

I dont think it will block the airflow that much. Especially with those temps you can have some restriction.

My WD Blue 640GB is iding at 35 degrees and maxes out on 41 degrees. Nothing to worry about.

A simple rule is to have a HDD that is not getting over 60 degrees. Over 60 degrees there is more chance on failiures. This was researched by Google.

Its al about the airflow in your case. A little breeze over your motherboard will make a big difference.

VRM's can easily stand temps like CPU's. Also it has a link with the TDP of the CPU.

WD Blue are very reliable drives which do run always (unline WD Greens which spindown) and WD Blacks who have raw performance and are noisy.

Just get 2 drives. One for drive and one for backups.

easy. Just put the 4 grommets through the hole. Then align the fan on the grommets and pull the grommets. then your fan is secured?
