Hi Guys,

Just threw together a more updated media PC, in this case ... http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135583 not very media pc ish but it's nice looking :-)

Inside is:

C2D E6300 + Arctic freezer pro 7
Gigabyte HD4350
500w PSU with 120mm fan..

My main question is how to set up air flow to maximise the cases cooling ability, Obviously I want this PC as near as silent as I can make it, and have invested in a Silent-ish PSU and silent GFX Card and the Freezer 7 is V quiet on low settings..

for anyone who isn't aware of the freezer pro it's this... http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalog/product_info.php?...

How exactly would you orientate the fans and air flow to achieve best cooling whilst keeping noise at a very minimum, I have a monsterous selection of fans, voltage reducers etc etc

Here is a crudely drawn plan-o-gram of a birds eye view of the case. http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/3292/casek.jpg

Cheers!!

**Correction - the PSU sucks air from the general area of the GFX card and exhausts via the rear of the PSU through some ventillation holes **
