I actually didn't even notice until I had everything connected and ready to go because the fan frame is not resting on it and the heatsink fins wheren't being bent. Is this a problem? I'ma open my case up today and check it out so I can give a better discription and see if anything nasty has happened.
2) What do I do about extra power cables from my power-supply that I don't use? Is it bad to have them sitting in the case without a cover or something to ground themout? Can I open up my power-suplly and remove them safely(incase I need them at a later date)?
3) What the hell is IEEE 1934a, figured it's gota be something popular cause its on the front of my case.
4) Is it best to use bios smart fan settings, download a smart fan program, or just have the fans set at a constat speed. (Planning on overclocking my system some)
1)That sounds a bit dodgey , wouldnt know what to do , somebody else may help on this one
2) I would leave them be , shouldnt realy open up your psu unless you know what you are doing , also they should be ok uncovered , i cable tie mine away
3) Firewire , that is what ieee1394a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FireWire
4)get ta fan controller , then you can turn them down when not needed at full speed
