I don't think I could handle that...

What fans are they?

You guys are going ape again with the fans. Remember what you pull in has to go out. The best setup has a slightly higher CFM exhaust fan. The reason for this is to create a slight negative air pressure in the case. This helps to draw more air in and the intake fans draw less current to move it.
Balance is everything.

That's why I'll only be replacing my exhaust fans on my rig with Scythes and not everything all around.

Well I got my AS5 and SATA cables today. Unfortunately, I am an idiot and ordered 18" cables when I meant to get 36" (the pictures were the same). They're basically the same length as my other ones. Unfortunately, I ran out of space on my other 2 hard drives (only a 160gb and an 80gb), so I put another 80gb in, but since the cables are so short, I couldn't put the angled connector on the hard drive, and have the straight on one the motherboard. So now it's a really tight fit. Anyways, the cables look pretty cool, and I'll eventually buy some longer cables. Here's some pics:


Not bad for a 7.2MP point and shoot, eh?

Damn! I didn't notice the 8 pin to 4 pin connector sticking out, that thing is a pain, it always pops up at the worst time, usually it stays down. Those SATA cables really don't make my cable management job look as good.

That sucks, it would have looked better with the longer SATA cables too. I've done that before though, don't feel bad.

Wow, this is the first time that I've quoted myself!

Anyway, I have been wondering if the heat pipe will work better with the heat sink above the cpu. So that the liquid inside the heat pipe will evaporate with the cpu at the bottom and condense better with the cooling fins above the cpu.

In any case, I loaded the cpu down with lots of work for about 15 minutes with the case upright in its normal position. Then, I laid the case on its side with the motherboard side down to see if the dark knight heat sink heat pipe would work any better or worse due to orientation. Well, after trying this twice in each position, I've come to the conclusion that it really doesn't make any difference.

Iv always wandered this to...

but at least you did some scientific work to prove it isnt plausible, ur a modern day mythbuster! lol

It's because the sodium core in the heat pipes is not position sensitive. It transfers the heat through a chemical reaction regardless of its position.
What is position sensitive are the fins on the dissipation end of the loop. If aligned to the flow of the air through the case as in the flat surface area of the fins being 90% to the exhaust fan, the air flow over the fin surface won't be impeded therefore more heat is lifted from the surface by thermal conductivity and it moved out of the case.
