thanks for all the input. as i was looking more into my case, i did see some spaces where i could add some fans. not sure what kind of fans or what good companies to buy from are, but i think i will be OK in that regard. i may just buy one for the front, as my case sits on top of a stool (don't ask, its so that it's not buried in the carpet >.<) as for putting another one on the top, both my blu ray drive and motherboard are almost touching where the screws would go in. would i be OK with just one intake and one output fan? (i think both would be 120mm) also, for god knows why my processor has semmed to stop running hot. i seriously have no clue why. right now it maxes out at 50 C under load. maybe the readings are more inaccurate? im not sure, but i guess my computer just decided to work better for no reasons. games like fallout and BFBC2 still suffer jitters, but that may be the GFX card itself. as of right now, the only things i plan on doing are adding a fan to my case and moving wires around to increase airflow. oh, and maybe reapplying the thermal paste. thanks for all your input, this has been one long troubleshooting period. anyone know what brand i should buy the fan from?
What local stores do you have where you are at?
If not, try these:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103060http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835129016http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835150070http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999113
Find a board or something to place the case on so you can use the bottom fan. Move your Blueray player down a spot, turn your Zalman to where the fan is facing the front (blowing towards the rear fan), and add 5 fans to yer case. One in front, two on top (I know it will be a tight fit, but my wife's coolermaster is about the same as yours and it is a tight fit for the fans, but they work), one on the bottom and one on the side cover.
Also, what are your settings for the games you play?
EDIT: I would suggest this mobo as an upgrade, since you can run a second GTX card in SLI, your 1055T will fit as well as all your other items. Down the road you could upgrade the CPU to a BD.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128510Edited by Obakemono - 8/20/11 at 4:50pm
