ok first off i have a [email protected] i cant figure out how to oc it anymore but thats ok ...its running at 53 celecius and thats a tad too high for me so i dont think i really need a peltiar or watercooling so im going with air cooling.

1st im buying a new case..my case is a small midtower ...im buying the antec KS180+PP303X
its the 300w 10 drive bay model

2nd (tell me if you see any problems) im mounting 2 120mm 131cfm fans on top to exhaust air (blowholes)
then 2 120mm 69cfm fans to blow cold air on the processor ram video card ect. then 1 92mm 44cfm fan on the front to blow in more air also one of those cheap 3 fan hdd coolers (about 6cfm per fan) and finally 2 throttle controls to toggle from 7 to 12v. i plan to get all this at nerdsbyte.com they have good prices and i know they ship to canada so wha do you think...if there are ANY problems that you can think off tell me please i dont want to spend 160$ on air cooling just to find a problem.....also i think the fans look cool with the grills :)

I just went to nerdsbyte and found this:

Shipping/Handling Policy:


PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CAN ONLY SHIP TO THE UNITED STATES. WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO DISCONTINUE SERVICE TO CANADA DUE TO POSTAL RATE INCREASES - A PACKAGE THAT USED TO COST $5 OR LESS TO SHIP TO CANADA NOW GENERALLY COSTS $10-20.

So you may want to look elsewhere... as far as the setup... it seems like you're exhausting ~30 CFM more (probably more like 60-70 CFMs with the PS fan) than you are putting in. I'm not the most knowledgable person, but I think you want to keep the two numbers relatively close...

AHHH YES youmake a good point i should have the same or more air going into the case than i am exhausting good work i knew id done something wrong....as for shipping hell 20$ for quality parts ....i cant find newhere else that sells the wide range of products they do puls i really need that throttle control....thanks for the idea i guess i'll just mount 2 131cfm fans in place of the 69 ones...ohh well 5$ more and more noise but who cares
