    its my most prestigious mod!! thats what it is!!

    Actually, its a HDD cooler kit mounted into/behind a Lian Li faceplate with 3 holes cut out of it. Pretty cool huh?
    Its not hooked up or anything (i dont need the extra 8CFM it pumps out for the noise it'll make)

    I also backlit it with a bloo lazer LED.

If it really is true though, I'm buying more Silent Boost coolers just for the fans, and selling off the heatsinks
    What fan are you talking about?

    Good question. I don't know. I'm gonna put some colored fans in myself in the next few days. My guess is that yes, you'll be able to see them, but not nearly as well as without the filter.
    So, I've got 3 blue/green vantec spectrum fans running now - front intakes and blowhole. I don't know how it looks with the filter yet 'cause I have'm running w/o and it looks great!

    Also, with these fans, you can really tell the difference in the 3 settings.

    I have one Sunon 39cfm coming for the exhaust, and I should be set - I hope.

    The biege drives actually don't look to bad in a PC68 (IMHO - or maybe I have just gotten used to them )
    How do you get a 120 to fit?

    Temporarily instal a PSU and CD drive. Layout where the fan goes based on the open area between PSU and drive. It's a little tight but mine fit fine...

    yeah.., a 120mm fan on top could be pretty tight in a PC60.

    I just put a 92mm fan on top..
    it's a blue-led fan, so it looks cool...
    also add another 80mm fan as a rear-exhaust and changed them with 80mm blue-led fans..

    I have always wondered about the effects of using a 120mm blowhole fan on top. Won't it direct too much air flow from going across the north bridge and cpu (that is if you don't have a side intake). I can see it helping to cool the ram chips though. I Just think an 80 or 92mm fan there to exhaust some of the warm air sitting at the top might be more effective as opposed to a 120mm. Care to comment guys?

    Those look like a great idea.

    Sure looks better than the yogurt container duct that I have attached to the side intake fan going directly over the hsf.

    Jungle man: Hey that would be great if you can provide a review for those silent boost fans when you get a chance to. I don't think a person using a rheobus to undervolt any 80mm fan currently on the market, can get it to beat 32cfm at 21 dba. Pretty impressive figures.

    Like you said, I hope they are not misrating the numbers.

    Knowing Tt, that is most likely MAJOR exaggeration. Hell, they list Volcano 6cu's 60mm fan as 31 dBA and 32 CFM!!! It just can't be possible. I've compared it to other 5300 RPM 60mm fans and all of them are ~22 CFM, 32 dBa.

    IMHO it depends on the speed of the fan you want to use. I went for a low speed (quiet) 120 mm instead of a higher RPM (noisier) 92 mm or 80 mm.

    I agree, you can get very good results with a 92 mm fan blow-hole on top and even an 80 mm (as long as you remove the stamped case grill!). It just depends on how much CFM per dBA you want...

    Another option with a large 120 mm top mounted blow-hole in some cases is to use it as the exhaust and use both the front and rear 80 mm fans as intakes. Lots of options, lots of choices.
