# of fans,
-120mm in the front
-120mm in the rear
-90mm on the side
-60mm cpu fan( I think)
-NB fan (dont know if that one counts)
- thermaltake giant VGa cooling sysytem (new)(has 2 fans)
so I Have 7 Total,and BTW plastic ties ARE EVIL!. on one of the first builds I ever did, i was tying up all the wires with plastic ties, so i put the case side back one, And I started doing a install of win xp pro, and halfway through I hear A pop! then a Errhrhffgh sort of noise, and then I smell burining plastic. Turns out the tie had broken off, and got logged in the CPU fan, which was stopped the fan from spinning immediatley,and since it stopped it so abruptly, it shorted out my CPU 3-pin fan connector, and my NB fan connector on that board, I was so p***sed off, but lukily, the proc didnt go up in flames, and I had a bunch of 3 to four pin connecters. but it really sucked because the cust. payed about 90 bucks for it off newegg. (its a good thing He doesnt know anything about computer's, or my rump would have been toast:P)

i though so too, but this guy says his burned !!

The plastic cable ties I have can sustain quite a high temperature. They can sustain as much as heat as the casing on the wires. Obviously that guy is using bad quality cable ties.

I got my cable ties from Radio shack... these are heat resistant just as much as the wire casing... if your cable ties melt.. you have bigger problems.. like the wire casing melting..
