Default Added cooling to an XPS 410

Well I always wondered why they dont have any exhuats fans I mean my CPU temps were 25C idle on both cores and my HD about 35-37C idle. There fine but I wanted an exhaust because when it was used on gaming my GTS would generate a lot of heat inside and the CPU is quite on top of it since its a BTX case. So i tried fitting a 120mm in the back wouldnt fit because it hit the USB port in the back. So went and got 2 80mm fans and they fit perfectly, excelent my computer runs so cool, now my cores are down to 20C idle, max load I detected like 38C while heavy gaming, my video card went down 1-2C. I like my cooling now goes straight the 120mm CPU cooler instakes directly infron of the 2 back 80mm fans, and got anothe 80mm down cooling the HD.

Add some bling to my case lol

It doesnt touch my 8800GTS Perfect!

Striaght cooling I actually like the cooling on a BTX
