This doesn't appear to be a popular case with overclockers for some reason. I selected it because it was the only one that had room for an 80mm exhaust fan above the processor. It has been working fine, but very noisy using what is in my opinion, a very loud Thermaltake heatsink/fan. I have questions about the following MB fan pins. cha_fan, pwr_fan, f_fan, cpu_fan.

I guess the question is...
Will the MB regulate the speed that these fans spin at?

I'm probably going to remove the intake fan, and replace it with something larger, and hopefully more quiet. I'm going to have to make some minor modifications up front so more air can get in.

I have two 5.xx" drive bays free, but I think putting intake fans up there would pull cool air in too close to the exhaust fans.
