Unhappy Rocket PC Upgrade

Within the next few days I will be shutting down my "Rocket" PC, removing the EVGA 680i SLI motherboard and returning it for an upgrade to the 780i SLI MOBO so I can use the new Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 Yorkfield 3.0GHz 1333 FSB 45 nano Quad-Core Processor.






This means that I'll be reverting to my 3.0 Ghz Pentium Dell PC and will be in a bad mood until the new MOBO is returned. I expect to be cranky, lethargic and tactless for at least 2 weeks.

Contest: There are several fans in the PC above. Where are they and how many in total?

BTW: I haven't purchased the new Intel CPU yet, I'm waiting for the price to drop at least $5.00

You are Wrong and you have to identify each fan!

I know how many fans there are and where they are but that's not really fair so I'll abstain from answering.

1 in the front of the case bottom, 2 above the PS, 1 in front of the MB, 1 cpu fan, 3 mem fans, 1 side fan.
Don't know how many in the PS, should be 1 at least or 2 like mine.
Also can't see if the case has a blow hole fan either like mine.

I built it, therefore it's a moderate/conservative PC not a Liberal PC.

Still no cigar, BennyB is not "smarter than the average bear" his emailed guess was wrong. This could actually be a contest that I win.

Hint: With the exception of the PSU fan which is on the bottom of the PSU one can see every fan.

Ah! So my follow up email was correct! No fan on the CPU. Sneaky Boss, real sneaky!

Well, of course, they are right there in the picture! As far as numbers, as many as needed to get the job done...

Wrong, there is a fan on the Zalman CPU heatsink.

You of all people, a Libertarian & strict Contructionist must also follow the rules and not act like a foolish liberal XXX.

Besides you apparently have never read anything about electric motors created by nano technology.
