if you mount the harddriv vertically, your pretty much building a wall in front of the fan. Better to have it horizonally so the air cal flow though it

well...i did the deed. Took off the drive rails on both sides of the HD's THe way I did this (and not recommended if you are not sure you still want to mount them the traditional way) is to open th back panel, rip off the rail from the back, and pry the rail off from the front. The plastic is stong ...

is it better to have high or low tension in the Stretch Magic wires? I used made it pretty tight. Does it make a difference, is there more possibility of vibration if the tension in the wire is tight?

daba? suspended HD's are good in your system? Think you;ll ever use the drive rail again? If I do remove the drive rail (which i might do this weekend) I'll probably hack (cut into tiny pieces) out the other side, too if the suspension really makes a difference.

Hello all, I have FINALLY recieved my Orange 120mm Yate Loon fans. I cut off the molex connector from the wire. I didn't know how to do it, so I did 2 methods. 1. tried to fix it so that the wire goes directly into the fan connector. 2. cut the wire and tied it toghether and wrapped it in electrical...

This is very unfortunate, I have went through 3 resellers and have run into this problem. Isellsuprlus, NCIX, and Tekgems (maybe?). It is very poor practice to not inform the customer about the error in the database. Both NCIX and isellsurplus did not contact me for over 2 weeks before they wrote ba...

The Orange Yate Loons from tekgems are an awsome deal even if you are in Toronto. If you want the 120mm Nexus fans, go to www.inmax.ca GO there in person. Just pretend that you want one. THen ask for a discount, then if she refuses, then say yu'll buy a few. I'm sure she will give you at least 1 tax...

As to the fan sucking air out of the case, I do have an alternative if it doesn't work...sort of! If/When I do decide to mod my case, when i have a few days to spare, I would drill out the rear exhaust, then I would drill 2 holes in the bottom of the case under the harddrives and put 2 120mm fans th...

If noise is really an issue. Get the Plextor. Theres a "silent mode" you can set the drive to. It works VERY well. As autoboy said "Silent costs money"

I"d get the plextor. Its an excelent drive and worth the extra money. Go on to www.cdfreaks.com (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=43) and hear what people say about the burner. It has some nice features to it such as Quiet Mode and GigaBurn, both of which I use constantly.
