[sorry, posted this in the wrong place before]

My office faces the side of the building where the sun sets. As a result, the room gets much warmer in the afternoon at which point the fans in my PC kick in and get really loud.

I've read a lot about the Thermaltake Kandalf. Specifically that it is very good with cooling and relatively quiet.

i was thinking of purchasing it, but decided to see what other thought first.

Might help if we knew what you are trying to cool. Is this a TRS80 or a dual XEON?

Sorry,

I've got a
- P4 3.2
- CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB)
- 3 SATA hard drives
- ATI Radeon 9800XT
- Sound Blaster Audigy 2
- plus the usual (floppy, CD/DVD, etc.)

The case is "RAIDMAX ATX-868WUP Blue Steel Gaming Case Computer Case 420W Power Supply"

I've got a fan in each of the available slots of the raidmax case.

You can see the fan locations here:

I use graphics intensive programs and have been known to play a game or two.

Well, I have to confess - you just introduced me to something new. Thank you. I thought this was a new CPU cooler and I'm pretty familiar with Thermaltake's product line. Their Silent Boost is one of my favorites.

From what I can tell this sure looks like a fine product but you're going to need some feedback from someone who has one and in that regard, I'm unqualified. I do prefer aluminum cases for cooling charactersitics and aesthetics and use them for most all of my high end builds.
