Yoda, did you ever get your hands on one of the Thermaltake modding ducts we talked about before?

I see where NewEgg has them in stock now. I've a couple on order and will let you know if the results are positive...

I also changed out my Thermaltake Volcano 7+ with the copper tiny fin technology. It had the 70mm fan and a manual speed control setup. 'Twas a bit on the noisy side. My Sweetie would complain and if I ever left the computer idling and if I left for a bit...she'd shut it down on me.

I swapped to the Thermaltake Volcano 9 and the 80mm fan and I'm running with the sensor. My temps went up slightly but the bugger sounds quiet and smooth. This one comes with a pot if I want to manually control or a full throttle jumper (haven't tried either yet).

Quiet seems to be the issue around here! :mad: So I'm super curious if the duct will further drop the temps, yet allow me the convenience of sensor control.

I have the mod duct on a Volcano 7. It dropped both noise and temps some. Slight but noticeable reduction in noise (less turbulence) and about 2-3C reduction in temp if I remember right.
