Don't suppose it's possible to use a second heatpipe set to cool 2 7800GTXs in SLi? If so any chance you could give it a go? I'm really interested to see just how far this case will go! Just moved to Germany (from England) so it's a bit cheaper to get hold of now. Al EDIT - also are you using the n...

Hi! Sounds like a "normal" bios setting issue. Things that might render that message are a too high OC, when hardware like the cpu has changed or after a bios update.

http://www.mcubed-tech.com/eng/Luefterliste.html T-Balancers allow you to run many fans down to 2%. In my experience you can get very effective cooling at surpirisingly low rpms if the case and general setup is right.

Well, you need Samurize and the Tban software running. So it's not free from a resource point of view. The templates I made use a WSH-script getting all data from Tbans database file. It's not the most low-resource solution you can do either, so currently it's not perfect if you want to update every...

What kind of connector is the gpu fan to the gpu board? I'm not at all sure but a TBAN-YA attenuator might work to get rid of the clicking noise. It's a long shot, but it just might do the trick.

I also have an Antec SLK3000B with an Antec Phantom. I agree that the lowest setting is well chosen. If one keeps the chassie inside tidy and have a more silent 120mm fan in the front you have a good basis to build a really silent PC. But the mid and high settings are way to loud to be useful in a s...

I've made some templates so you can get all the information you want out of your T-Balancer and display it using Samurize.

The T-Balancer with four analog sensors and no digital ones is only 6 USD up from the digital sensor version. And in addition you get sensor hub with power-off ability + water cooling expandability + still the possibility to add digital sensors whenever you feel like it....
