Why are my temps so high?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently changed cases, From some off brand case to a Thermaltake Armor case. The previous case had one front fan, One exhaust fan and one on the side panel. The Thermaltake case has 1 x front 120mm, 1 x 120mm exhaust, 1 top 85mm fan. I've also went from radeon HD4650 to an Nvidia 8800GTS. My temps are ALOT higher than normal, In the previous case it's over all temp was only about 45c MAX... In this one? I've reached 63*C!

Nothing is overclocked, All the fans have been cleaned, and I've applied Artic 5 thermal paste to the CPU. Right now I have a big box fan blowing in the case to keep it cooler, but it's still at 56*C and before when I did this it would get down to 32*C!

Is the current temps. Sorry I don't have any pics of the previous temps. But does case material make a difference? It seems like the previous case was aluminum or something, and this Thermaltake case is a thicker material.

whats your fan1? Its running speed is only 15rpm? Honestly I hate speed fan I never feel that it is correct, use msi after burner and double check the gpu to make sure that its correct. I have no guess though. My mobo says I run at 26-36c and speed fan says plus about 10. I dont trust it
