Chassis Air Guide example. Page 6 onwards.

Its what it says it is. It guides air more directly from the fan over the hot components.

80mm x 15mm = 80mm X 80mm fan that's 15mm thick.
80mm x 20mm = 80mm X 80mm fan that's 20mm thick.

As posted above, it's just a plastic tube that directs the air from the side intake fan onto the cpu cooler, local pc shop maybe if you're really interested as they're not "absolutely necessary"

What are you using for a CPU cooler?

MB? Your guess is as good as mine, just get an 80mm fan that moves the most CFM (cubic feet per minute) at the lowest dBA (sound output level)

Which bios are you running on your Black Ops?

Which Corsair modules?

Overclocking your E8500 at all?

Default Re: Fan Size Problem

I am going to use Zalman Heatpipe CPU cooler with 92mm blue LED fan (do I need thermal paste as well) as a CPU cooler. I haven't got this computer built so I do not know what you mean by what bios I am running i am using 2 OCZ Gold 4gb DDR3 PC3-12800C8 1600MHZ Dual Channel Ram. I do not plan to overclock my processor or any component on my computer!

iirc the zalman comes with a tube of Zalman thermal paste, it's probably not the best product available but should be more than adequate if you're not overclocking

BIOS - Basic Input Output System, the screen where you set all your voltages, memory timings etc when first booting a computer.

Are you going to use one or two kits of memory? If it is one kit the memory should be OK, I'm running 2*2GB 1600MHz with no problems. If it is two kits you may encounter problems as it places a large load on the Northbridge. You'll have to set the speed (1600MHz) manually in the bios as it will default to 1333MHz. I suggest you use the white DIMM slots too btw

Which operating System are you going to run?

You shouldn't get hung up on what "MB" stands for as none of seem to have any idea. Just about any 80x80x15mm or 80x80x20mm fan will work. You can get them wherever you purchased your computer parts from.

If you're not planning on overclocking, your really wont need to mess with the BIOS. It should automatically configure everything upon the first boot. The motherboard manual will show you how to enter the BIOS and how to adjust the available settings.
