I live in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle. I am not sure why my temp is 24 at idle-- I do have virtu enabled thru the z68 mobo, so I think that lets the gpu rest during 2d use, and the Seasonic PSU basically puts out no heat during low load.
About the mobo, I definitely want to upgrade, but will have to save the scratch to do so. But then the question would be : new mobo or new gpu? I am leaning toward gpu, at least until the next big chipset becomes affordable/necessary.
Side note: if I get the HAF 912 side enclosure with the fan cut out, any recs for type of fan and whether I should have it set to intake or exhaust?
