Hello Bleeping Computer,

I am thinking about updating my computer case to produce more airflow with my existing hard ware. I have been looking around and I found a few idea on new egg more fans than one and mesh to provide more air flow. I have a PSU it was design to be bottom mounted but my case that came with my build is top mount so I believe that I have a limited air flow. I am running 2 SATA cables one for my HDD and one for my DVD drive. 6 ports are available on my motherboard.

I have been getting performance dialogue box that "changing the setting will get you more performance" so I assume that it was the air flow and GPU is almost high temp. I was looking at Rosewill cases and enjoy seeing six fans cases would that be overkill probably. I prefer 3 fans. Could you give me any links that might be suitable for this. I want to spend less than S75-100 on it.

Off Topic: Is there a site where they sell replacement I/O shield or is ebay the only one.

Off Topic: When I recover from a power outages. my power supply doesn't turn on right away. Is it normal to do that or a safety circuit. I have no manual switch so I turn it off and on and normal boot cycle.

Here is my specs http://speccy.piriform.com/results/vGdSTVtzJ23Kj1bACoo1qDG and form factor is Micro-ATX Size, 244mm*210mm

Thanks all for reading my post have a wonderful day.
