    The "TOP Holes" is on PCI not CPU
    Arrow in Blue Cyan, is parasite flow because nothing is calibred by "device"
    Your last proposition, is the better as you can have !!! (y)
    I have similar but inverse on my HTPC, all Fan are TakeOut and added CPU Fan with thermal sensor http://www.enermax.fr/fr/everest-ucev-9/82-2-c.html for no sound when idle ( and with your new config, CPU should be cool (y) )

    Oh yes you are right, I drew it in the wrong spot :)

    all my fans are motherboard speed controlled and go faster depending on which part of the HTPC gets hot.[DOUBLEPOST=1366371588][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I disagree with your airflow direction here though, if the case is positive pressure, I think the airflow will go in the opposite direction
    it's not really rights !!! and i don't know if your case in stored is not put in a cabinet

    It has lots of space all around it, including behind and above it. The cabinet has large holes behind the HTPC as well, as well as 30cm gap on each side of the htpc.

    I have the silverstone GD07B and I really like it. No front memory card reader. It takes 2x front 5.25" and a lot of 3.5" drives. The only bad point is the bottom mounted filter is a HUGE pain to remove for cleaning.

    Like I wrote, there is a lot of different theories about whether there really is any whine or not and whether it' only certain MoBos that trigger it or not... At the end of the day I'm happy with the PSU as the whine is not really noticable with case closed. It's really more a "principal" complaint about the PSU that is marketed as...

    If you look a the content of the ZIP file and open "Deckenplatte.fpd" (german word for "case cover plate") you will find a hint that the case cover plate must be curved as described in the document "Gehäusedeckel.pdf". This document describes how the cover must be bent. As the description in my document is in german I described the...
