I agree, not starting a war. but some of what you have posted make's no sence what so ever.I use a single GPU, and have fans located inside my case to keep air flowing, and if i turn off my side panel fan, my GPU temps go up by about 10-15c. I have made no mods to my case, and am not running 2 GPU's.
I have also spent lots of hours in testing case's and airflow in PC's. and some of your claims differ from what my test's have proven. I have used many case's, form "stock" white box case's to high end "gaming" case's and all my results where the same. If you have somthing to teach me, I would like to know. You should do a search on this site for Elume. He is the guru of Air Cooling on this thread, and has documented ALL of his test here. Keep in mind there is no hate here! This is a learning community, and if you have found methods that many of us have dissproved proof of it and exactly what you did would be great, so we can pass the info on to other people in your situation.Cheers
Edit: Also, your parts(CPU and GPU) are kinda out dated, and dont make the kind of heat the rest of us are dealing with. it is common for people on here to hit 70-85c on there GPU(this is a single card), while people with dual GPU's and OC's are hitting close to 90-95c, i dought there is anything that could make your GPU hit those temps. Also lots of us have extreeme OC's on our CPU's(my 24/7-365 OC is 3.8GHz, would be 4.0+ but my mobo hate's me) so some of what we do to keep our temps in check may not apply to you due to your parts using less voltage to keep running.Edited by KhaoticKomputing - 8/22/11 at 11:10pm
