Ok, for all of you with an X-Dreamer II, In what way do you have your fans set up inside your case. Which slots should I have blowing air out and which ones should I have air blowing in. Thanks for any replies

np, it does tend to collect a bit of dust, so remember to clean it out occassionally

I've been thinking of buying one of those for some time now (aquirement issues... I live in Colombia).

How's it holding up?

I've heard the fans are a bit noisy... or was it because of the grills?

One of the most significant upgrades I want to do is make it more silent... any comments?

My only complaint is that the front panel does not come off easily at all (at least mine doesn't). The fans don't seem noisy to me but I also replaced the orignal grills with plain circular wire grills. Also, if you use <=20db fans (i.e. some of the Panaflos, Vantecs, etc) then they be basically silent.

The fans arent too loud on mine, and it holds up really well. The mobo tray is removable, and I didnt really have any trouble removeing the front panel.

How does the front panel remove on yours? Is it just held on with plastic tension pins? I don't know what it is about mine (agian, not the "II" series..I have first model) but I cannot get that front panel off to save my life.

there are 2 screw inside that need to be removed also. Then its like 4 tension pins and it pops right off

Cool, thanks for the tip. I get real impatient with cases sometimes and then just say "screw it" and leave crap hanging out by molex connectors and what-not. :D

Mine is doing great and I love it. its holding up perfect without any prob. Got it from newegg without a scractch :) You might want to replace the psu that comes with it though. Mine was holding up perfect but I still didnt want to take any chances so I threw a 430watt true power and its been solid.
