Well, the ANTEC ones don't provide what you'd call excellent cooling, everything's running at stock and the case is 32c and the CPU 50c after a couple of hours of CS.

What fans would you reccomend that aren't so powerhungry?

If the Amp reading from the sunon fan is correct , you would need a separate power supply just for those sunon fans . I like the EnerMax uc-12-fab , .20A , 2.4W , 95cfm , 30db .

Link below .... follow links in link for more info ....

So my best bet is to put both fans as outtake to reduce heat?

Or should I add a top fan?(I'd have to drill a hole and stuff) Since with the door open and both fans gone my case is still 40ish celsius. I'd imagine it'd be lower, but the heat has to go somewhere...

Wow, now I know why it's hot... It sinks into the carpet and the front airflow is blocked... :D

Thanks alot for these websites! :D

PS. Should I get different, but better fans that arent as power-hungry as the SUNONs ?

EDIT: I put my U.S. History book under it!

I would try to use the fans you have that work with your system ( not the sunon's ) and try and free up the airflow in your case . It seems more of a case problem than a fan problem . If you buy more fans , I suggest the one in the link below .... Good Luck .

I'm not sure what you mean about secure ?

But , I have ordered from svc many times over the last couple of years , no problems of any kind . newegg.com normally carries that same fan as well .

Good Luck .

Thanks! It's just that I didn't see the BBB logo, or the Verisign, but if you say it is, it is.

They have some cool stuff newegg dosn't have...

Thanks for all your help guys! :D
