Default few questions can you help a guy out?

Hey It’s been awhile I got a few questions for you guys I got a buddy of mine he said he

got a hard drive cooler me I’ve never been big on hard drive cool’n but I been think’n

about getting a dual hard drive cooler like this one

http://www.maddogmultimedia.com/prod...DHDDFCF602.htm but

I want to know your thoughts on this after I finally saw one I noticed the speeds aren’t

that great and unless you can modify it your not going to notice much of a drop in

temperatures so I was wondering would it be possible to change out the two fans it came

with and use normal ones that are both around 5000rpm each? I already have four fans as

it is I have one in the front, back, behind the power supply unit I installed myself they can be located here http://www.thermaltake.com/dcfans/smartfan/a1357.htm

Smart Case Fan II with manual speed switch and I also have a volcano 7+

on the CPU I’m not too good with fan BS so can you help a guy out?

Note: I just don’t want to over do it I don’t know much about the PSU or the fan BS and I

heard some guy say once he overheated his PSU and I don’t want that to happen to me

any comments on this fact will be greatly appreciated.

Id also like to look into fan contollers I was look’n at this one it looks pretty cool any

thoughts about thease are they any good if I could get this kind of stuff then I would just

buy really good fans without controllers on them and adjust it myself I was think’n

maybe I could use this with those delta high speed triple blade fans I belive? Really noise

fans but great CFM the one I’m looking at is a VANTEC NXP-201-SL Silver Fan

Controller Panel – Retail and can be located here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813999503

You can swap out the fans with other 60mm fans in most cases, and HD coolers that attatch to the hard drive to make a difference

Alright thanks. I just hope when I put what I want behind the power supply it doesn’t

over heat as for the hard drive coolers ya that would really cool if I could modify them and get adjustable speeds for it.
