I'm planning a Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R motherboard with Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, Corsair 450W psu, Hauppauge HVR-2200 and 3 Samsung 500Gb HDD in Raid 5 (also making it a NAS) and an extra 32Gb HDD for the OS.
Now I was thinking about cannibalising my old Dell Dimension Pro XPS case because it's already here and it's pretty compact. But it only has 1 80mm fan and I am concerned that may not be enough. Question is, should I be looking for 2 fans (or more) and should they be 120mm. Can you ream out the fan duct to convert 80mm to 120mm?
I know 120mm run quieter, etc. (been reading many threads).
Thanks for any advice!
