Hi Shadow, Thanks for the feedback... I am using the 120 mm fan that comes with the Antec Sontota Case...so you think I need a second bay fan? Wasn't aware that only the one was sufficient for the 12 volt required to run the dual board/CPUs... Yes, I am using the stock CPU fans on the dual Xeon 2.4s...
