Is there any way (zip ties, etc) to attach something like this 40mm Scythe fan for $3.45
(jab-tech.com)? As beautiful as the Thermalright chipset coolers are, it might be easier (and cheaper!) to add a small fan.

If I remember correctly, I looked at that I remember it being un-checked.
By the way, another slight issue I encountered is that XBMC wants to use the desktop refresh rate reported by gnome
- regardless of the actual refresh rate (as reported by nvidia-settings). nVidia knows about this and offers this workaround
Why is the refresh rate not reported correctly by utilities that use the XRandR X extension (e.g., the GNOME "Screen Resolution Preferences" panel, `xrandr -q`, etc)?
You can use `nvidia-settings -q RefreshRate` to query the actual refresh rate on each display device.
This behavior can be disabled by setting the X configuration option "DynamicTwinView" to FALSE.
In my case, although nvidia-settings (and my monitor) reported 60Hz, gnome thought 50Hz. Thus, the default mode in XBMC was 1680x1050 @50Hz. After adding the above line to xorg.conf, gnome and XBMC both say 60Hz.
