nice! :D

1/ are those Zalman CNPS-9500 (or whatever it's called, don't remember exact model number) ?
2/ are those 4 Thermaltake 120mm fans? intake, right?
3/ apart from those and the 120mm exhaust fan in the back of the case, are there any more fans in the system ? how many in the PSU?
4/ how noisy is that thing with all the fans running? noisy? do you have a fan-controller somewhere there ?
5/ what do you mean by "other 2 sticks of ram are behind the heatsinks" ?
6/ WHAT OPTICAL DRIVES ARE IN THAT SYSTEM?

the optical drive is a simple lg lightscribe, picked it up from work

here are the heatsinks: http://www.zalman.co.kr/usa/product/vie ... 5&code=005

yes 4 120 thermaltake fans

120mm intake fan up front

psu has another 120mm, its a 650watt psu

it is pretty noisy and it has a 8 channel pci fan controller

the pictures show 2 of the 4 sticks of ram, theres 4 sticks of 1gb ecc registered ram

6 intake 120mm fans and just two exhaust fans (including the PSU) ?

well its not that hot, only thing that is oced is the vid card, by a tad

this should be the one i told the buyer of the system to get:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6827136091

LG - GSA-H10N

also theres only 5 intake fans from the outside of the case

good choice for the drive.

you said "another 120mm intake fan on front and top" that's why i said 6.
5/6 intake fans and only 1+PSU exhaust fans = too much pressure buildup inside ...

the top is exhaust, its usually never a good idea to have that as intake

hot air rises

so back 120 exhaust, psu 120 exhaust, top 120mm exhaust

Very nice.

my personal computer has a lot more airflow though, and is much quieter

but that ability came with a huge price premium
