Where do you get the extra power...
for running all those extra fans added to a case. I have a 300W power supply pushing all the stuff in my case (see signature) plus 3 extra 80mm case fans, a slot fan, and a 40mm I added to my vid card. Now I am thinking seriously about a couple of blowholes.
I have a spare 230W power supply sitting around. Should I try to add it into the case as well to take some of the load off of the main supply. (Could also power some of the CD drives?) Or would it be better to use a power block and something like a 12V AC/DC plug-in transformer? Or, is the power draw of fans even something to consider?
Before I play around with overclocking too much, I want to resolve all of my cooling issues first. Right now, I can OC 100MHz with only a 4C increase in max temps.
