100 deg f is nothing, my 3200+ produces 120 deg f of heat.

You should get this, it keeps both my friend's comp and cd drive cool. Great way to solve your cd-bay/cooling fan problem.

what i meant was
other than the 3 fans(CPU,GPU, power system), where do you sit the fans.
i mean there are no places on the case to screw them in, are they?

ah, i see it now, the circular pattern of holes.

i have got a rectangular pattern of holes at the bottom of my case, even my old case (circa 1998) has them, what are they there for?
