You have virtually nothing in there. Maybe bad heatsink placement? you also need to get the hot air out. Like ya said another fan. Don't have many choices as the back fits an 80mm. Maybe you can have the back come in and the side out? What do you mean by bad heatsink placement? There are only so ma...

OMG, what an awesome setup! The NSK2400 fits in perfectly, looks more like a high-end audio unit than a PC. I am going to be building an almost identical AM2 rig, if it was me I would prefer a lower idle temp than 51C, have you tried undervolting in software (RMClock/Crystal)? Thanks for the compli...

Some random thoughts from assembly: - Antec put together a high quality case in the NSK2400. All of the 'little touches' were there, like rolled edges to prevent cuts, cables that were actually long enough, everything fit together well, etc. - The CNPS 9500 AM2 is huge!!! It completely dwarfs the st...

I hope everything fits ok! How many case fans will you be using in this setup? I'm not quite sure yet how many case fans I'll need in this setup, but I'll obviously try to keep it to a minimum to keep the noise down. I don't think the system should produce a whole lot of heat, since I don't even ha...

I am currently running a PC with just one fan, although it is just a low power media PC. The single 80mm fan in the PSU exhausts air out the back.

the thermaltake smart fan 2 appears to have a pretty wide operating range... 20cfm at 1300rpm all the way to 75cfm at 4800rpm. i'm pretty sure this would be louder in it's stock form than my panaflo L1A. but how would it work with no sensor and hooked up to the fan only connector on my antec psu?
