Someone please help me with my cooling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm using the NZXT apollo case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146025 and I'm just using the 2 120mm fans that come with it. 1 pulling into the case and the other up by the psu pushing out. I've also got the hyper 212+ on my cpu. Well since I just installed my second 6950, my cpu temps have gone from 43-47c while surfing which feels kinda high to me. What should I do to better my air flow? I'm already thinking I should put a "pull" fan on the other side of my 212 heatsink. Any help is greatly appreaciated. Thanks

Put a pull fan on the 212+ and re seat the cooler with good thermal paste.

I think I didn't do too well of a job with my first paste application. Should I add anymore case fans besides the only 2 on it right now? And My cpu temps have skyrocketted since putting in this second card. Hit 61c playing metro 2033
