System Monitor

The E2C System Monitor (2nd 5 1/4" bay), provided by AMK, has 8 temperature probes. I put one of the probes as close as I could to the GeForce's chip. I set it in between the heatsink/fan and the card itself, touching the tip against the chip. I taped it in place using a small piece of thermal tape I had left over from the kit that came with the System Monitor. Phew, maybe I should clean up that dust!

Ready, Set, Go!

I made all of my preliminary observations (you can see all my observations later in this guide under "Observations") and I started installing the components. Since I was planning on stacking the 120mm fans in some way, I knew I would have to install the slot fan first. These are very easy to install. It went directly into the slot and I screwed it in. Also, it is very close to the GeForce and it sucks air right off of it and out the back of the case.

Yes, I believe the dust is a problem! :)
