Was refering to DirtyElf's post.
I had my ex-girlfriend's 32" Samsung TV as my computer monitor until she got sick of not being able to use the TV and moved out...

Its just handy to have all your devices all on one screen, IMO.

Oh, I've used my 32" before with it but it was for movies, but then the main screen would not go to a screen saver since they were in use so I'd have to turn it off and stream the video to the 32" with the HDMI connection on my Video Card. I was planning on using it with my comp but most for viewing stuff I've made etc...

Currently my comp is sitting on the floor of my room. I can't figure out if the AeroCool Touch 1000 will fit in it or not. Besides that most the stuff I have is hooked up. I don't like the orientation of my motherboard in the case but I was no planning on funding a new one so it is what it is I guess.

I was able to figure out how to make the AeroCool Touch-1000 fit so I have that installed but I do not know how I should configure the fans. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have the Corsair H70 CPU cooler which is intaking air from the rear, the top 200mm fan which exhausts and the front 200mm fan which intakes also.

The Touch-1000 can control up to 4 fans I believe and the case has its dial for case fan speed. There are 4 fans total, the push pull for the H70 in the rear, the 200mm in front, and 200mm in front.

Besides that I have the two cd-rom drives also installed. There is no way to install the Internal Card Reader because there is no cut out on any of the front panels. The only thing missing is the internals, memory, and graphics card. The same memory is going in but the graphics card is probably getting updated.
