My System Specs

Default

Well, I put the Xigmatek in, as well as my new case fan. So far so good. I ran a few benchmarks, including 3D Mark 11, Unigine Heaven and a few hours of BF3. CPU temps don't rise above 41C under load. What a difference from having my computer crash because the cooling system couldn't handle BF3 or even the CPU test in 3D Mark.

My next question now: I'd like install a fan at the top vent on my case (Thermaltake V4). However, I have clearence issues. A 120x120x25 fan contacts the Ram and the small MB power cord. Is there such a thing as a low profile fan? Say, no deeper than 12.5mm?
