Lol I guess I could, give me a minute to get out my drawing utensils lmao

Edit: Guess I could just take a picture of it, but... my case isn't the prettiest lol. Could give you an idea of what the problem is also. Can I post tinypic links here? Theres quite a bit of front damage to my case.

This is the back 120mm fan, exhaust:

This is the top 120mm fan, exhaust:

This is the 92mm heat sink fan, venting the air towards the back of the case. As you can see it just clears the first ram stick slot:

This is the CPU side panel 92mm fan. It goes half way onto the heat sink and half way onto the north bridge:

This is how the case sits in my desk, unfortunately this does seem to restrict air flow, if I take the case out of their it does cool down. But I can't have it sitting to my side:

Better then drawings lol. Hope this gives you an idea of how the air flow is.

It's not that good of a case though tongue.gif It was a cheap, $50 mid tower from rosewill. I figure I'd pay 20$ more then standard cases since it looked like it had nice venting. The whole case is nothing but holes already also. I can't take it out of the desk either because I have no room for it to be next to me, I could kick it every time I get up. The extra LED lighting on the front was just a plus when considering buying it. But that picture is to dark to show the front fan. There are some dents and stuff and the metal in front of the fan is starting to rip off. So it wouldn't look to pretty in a light area lol.

lol time for modding or a new case.
if you choose the latter, i would suggest a phantom 410 or a phantom full newegg special edition.
also the fractals are sleek.
the ravens are amazing for airflow.
as for the location, mine is on top of my desk.

Nah wouldn't be able to get a new case. Don't have the tools to mod my case either :/ Though I wouldn't mind modding it. It's already beat to hell lol.I got a question though... The max 'Core' temp is 61C, or 62C, heard both... While I was rending a video, 2 of the 8 cores on my CPU went to 61C. It only hit it for about a minute, how dangerous is it to actually be at the max or even a little bit over?

lol not even close to a problem
they are really rated for 95 or so, but anything above 62 sustained could cause stability and wear problems. if you're up at 80 for an hour or less for a burn test or ocing experiment, it wont hurt the chip, even though its definitely smart to keep it cold. i would stay under 60 prime95'd if i were you.

Lower your NB/CPU voltage if possible, my ASUS 990fx board on auto sets it at 1.40, WAY too high, its runs stable at 4.9Ghz on 1.25 NB/CPU voltage and that lowered my socket temps by quite a bit, since the NB/CPU controller is part of the CPU, it's throwing un-needed voltage at the socket.

I have a couple different voltages. Which one is my NB?I have CPU VCORE that is usually at 1.41V but goes as low as .86V, VIN1 which is almost always at 1.47V, VBAT is almost always 3.18V, and CPU is usually at 1.41V but gets as low as 1.07V

It's been a little bit since anyone responded, hoping to still get some questions answered though. I decided to save some money to get a watercooling kit. I'm hearing basically two different watercooling CPU sets, one being the Corsair H60, the other is the Antec 620. Which one do you think is better price wise?? Are there any other watercooling CPU sets you think might be better for my situation, whereas I don't overclock. Just need something to keep the thing cool lol. And also need ones that will fit in my case, which is the Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower. Will the H60, Antec 620, or any other watercooling systems thrown out there fit in this case with a Gigabyte 990FX UD-3?

Those are the main questions, my other questions are mostly about how the lifespans of watercooling systems are? What kind of maintenance do they need? Reliability, because I don't want water pooring into my case lol.

Hope this isn't to many questions to answer but don't want to get something that won't fit, to much for how I use my system, or high risk of installing it wrong... this would be my first watercooled systemed.

EDIT: Forgot to mention this system is on 24/7
