So, wood + heat = no fun for house.

What measures are you taking to control the thermals?

I didn't see anything mentioned already in this thread unless I missed it.

thanks.

thermal measurs, umm well, this sint the most practicle of cases but it will have an intake fan underneith, and an exhust at the back, along with the 120mm exhust under the psu, its not much, but it shoud be enugh.

oh yea, i also got a pci fan controller, and that has like a billion thermal probes that plug into it, soo il be able to monitor temps good, on the 6.5" case monitor

This case is really cool, but I hope you sanded around your on/off switch. You wouldn't want a splinter :P
