Default Re: Anyone running a Q9650 here?

But, I'm curious if the heat from the top 260 while gaming is hitting the waterblocks for the NB and Q9650 and heating them up a bit. I may have to place a 120mm there just to test tonight. But, the one thing I think this case is really missing is vents in the window to mount a fan to blow cool air on the SLI setup. I had this in my old Lian-Li PC-V1200 and my E8400 was ICE cold. In defense of this case though, the Q9650 was never below 42C at idle on that Lian-Li at 3.825GHZ.
Oh, no defense needed. I would love to have one someday.

Curious how your test with the extra 120 pans out. Would you consider modding the side panel?

Or you could get one of these.
