I also see you have a HAF 932 so it seems really strange that the air is not moving better than this. There are some videos of how to remove and reseat coolers. Check this out.
Not exactly the same as what you have but pretty darn close. It can be a process but it might be worth it given your temps.
Thanks for the vid. Yeah i dont understand it at all
. Im sure the heatsink is on ok as they stress tested it for 48hours before giving it too me....unless these temps didnt bother them?
Im replacing the fans with led coolermaster megafows anyway. There is a good 9 inches gap between the side and back of the case. The front obviously has nothing blocking it.
Am i going to have to take the mobo out of the case to do this?? Or can i do it while its still in the case?
