Following on from my heating problems i decided to treat myself to a new case as i felt taht the current one wouldn't help matters.

so i picked up an Antec 900 gaming case :yes:

1 top 200mm TriCool fan with 3-speed switch control
1 rear 120mm TriCool fan with 3-speed switch control
2 front 120mm special black TriCool blue LED fans with 3-speed switch control to cool HDDs
1 side (optional) 120mm fan to cool graphic cards
1 middle (optional) 120mm fan to cool CPU or graphic cards.

coupled with a Front thermal controll unit i picked up at the weekend - should keep it cool :lol:

Will post pics of the case & installed kit later.

Good choice.. I have an Antec something or other and it is a good piece of kit with loads of spare bits and pieces!

but everythings installed & the fan's are set to low,

pervious temps
