NZXT Nemesis & Cooler Master V8


May 28, 2009
Sorry to rain on your parade gore, but the V8 isnt highly rated as a cooler for i7, look at the Xigmatek Dark Knight.

As far as your -1 case fan problem goes, i can't imagine it causing critical system failure or anything, but do watch for the heat build up when it comes to the switch on.

If you're still worried, you can get some 120mm server case fans which spin at about 4000 RPM and can shift like 80CFM, theyre noisy and a bit thicker (37mm compared to 25mm standard case fans) but it will certainly help your airflow.
