it'* the black slot above the 3 white pci slots on that board right there.



btw, i think it was bill, but the 6 fans are correct positively and negatively positioned. 2 up front and 4 80'* in the rear. When i first built it, i just threw it together and ran it that way for a month cause i wanted to use it, but i later corrected it. I also have fan filters to keep out dust.

And that is funny if you think I do not know jackshit about computers, LMFAO....I own a cmoputer repair business from home.....Being your own boss is the way to go imho.

You're inducing more dust with 6 fans, and killing yourself. Typically, even on the 'hottest' systems, 2 fans are sufficient. Any more than 4 are simply bragging rights, and serve no purpose.

I have 5 fans on my case. 2 intake, 3 exhaust. It actually works quite well. I have mine filtered too. Only a small amount of dust gets in. Things have run at acceptable temperatures. It'* a large case. 1 of the intake fans actually directs air under the hard drives, and the other directs air under the video card. 2 exhaust fans on the back suck out hot air coming from the CPU and PSU. Then I have 1 side exhaust to vent hot air from wherever.

Thats a good setup. I did not do a side exhaust. Although i should probably mount one on the side next to the video card cause when under load the 5950 seems to get pretty hot according to the external temp display. I think that thing is off though, its a CoolerDrive4. Whenever i adjust the RPM'* lower to keep the noise down, it says 1800rpm when the software side shows 2200rpm and +/- 2* . Oh well.

And yet you don't know an AGP slot is brown, not black? It'* an industry standard to help prevent people from plugging the wrong stuff in there....
