    This is my setup:

    Chieftec - Dragon
    Power Supply:ENERMAX Noisetaker
    Processor:AMD Athlon XP 2500+
    Mobo:ABIT "NF7-S" nForce2 Chipset Motherboard
    Corsair XMS Extreme 512
    Hard Drive:Seagate 120GB 7200RPM
    Graphics Card:SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9800 PRO
    Cd-Rom(CDR/CDRW): Lite-On Black 52X32X52
    Floppy Drive:SONY Black 1.44MB 3.5inch Floppy

    Do you think these four fans running at 27 CFM will provide adequate cooling?
    Thanks.

    it will me more than enough

    ive got:

    AMD 2600+
    512 MB RAM
    200GB HDD
    9200 SE VIDEO Card

    now im running 4 fans......... the one controlled by my mobo is running under 600 RPM!!!!!

    2 of them are running @ 7 volt (one of which is nearly totally blocked cause of wrong intake placement i just noticed yesterday)

    i could prolly do with just 1 fan

    if you havent bought them yet, dont do it, get 1, see what your temps are and you can allways ad more

    So far I only got two so I can use one as my HD/Intake fan and one as an exhuast fan.

    It's all about temps, not the number of fans anyway, if your temps are good, it's cool.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    4 case fans could even be overkill (noisy).

    I have a 2500+ overclocked to 3200+ speeds with only 2x80mm exhaust fans. No intake. Also the 2 fans I have are spinning at about 1500 RPM which is way slower than most 80mm fans. (Antec Case)

    Temps stay under 50˚C under continuous load (folding@home for months now).

    volt mod them then.

    I have 2 intakes, 2 exhausts.

    I could probably take out one intake and one exhaust and it would still be just as cool, but the fans have LEDs in them so im keeping them.

    edit: and forgot to say, all my fans (except the cpu fan which is now also an 80mm ) are volt modded to 7v. B)
    Pretty quiet now
