Hum..I googled it, got some decent pictures but I can't really tell. Check the back side see if you can find a latch.

Good news, theres a latch, but it seems like there should be another one cuz i pulled it and the top half of one side opens up.

EDIT: Cant open it at all. I have to pick it up and move it, damn near impossible. Also means id have to unplug it and move it away from the short cords, which would take my power away, not being able to see the fans spinning.. IF.

Mate, if I were you I'd phone Dell Helpline, explain the problem and see what they have to say.

News.. Okay, i opened it up. I count 2 fans. One, is blowing stuff out the back of the case. The other is blowing cool air on the PCIe cards. I dunno what my CPU should look like, but i found a silver heatsink thing.. and something that looks like the chip. No fan on the motherboard as far as i saw. Maybe i should take a picture..

pretty unhelful comment. Sure that card is meant more for 3d stuff than for gaming but that is no reason for the fact that it blue screens.

It feels like a lead weight just dropped on me. Yes, they are server CPU's, and your probably right about not having fans. Anyone got any suggestions (newegg link?) to something i should buy?

Anyone else agree w/ me that i should ebay my current card for about.. 900 and get two gaming cards?

Well, im out for the night. Be back with updates the following day..
