    No mods to the case thanks to Zalman VNF100 Passive Cooler
    Running on the stock 250W PSU

    It runs pretty hot, Idle at liek 60-67C and Load at 85C however it's pretty much completely silent.

    I like to use Photobucket for that reason, always crops em to 800x600 (max) lol.

    That cooler looks pretty nice for boards that have the 16 lane slot one over from the left where you'll have room. Being silent must be nice, the fan on my 8800GTS is the loudest in my system.

    Got the temps down to 60 on load by just adding an extra fan inside poitning towards teh heat sinks (blue fins) 50 on idle (nexus fans silent)

    Closed Case is lower temp, becuase the ICE fan actually allows the case to have air flow. If you open case it doesn't work as good since the air won't flow from teh vents of the shell.
