What CPU is it? And is it overclocked at all?

Also looked at a your rig in full size, is there any way you can try some cable management?

pentium dual core e5700 3.ghz non overclocked

i will redo cable management once i get the fans situated

Maybe you should just get new case?

One that would have good cable management, and would already have front and most likely bottom air filters. Doesn't even have to be expensive.

Something like that would be good, looks good, cables management holes and a proper airflow layout. Cheap too. thumb.gif

Here is a pic of what I used to help people before. This should help you get the idea of how to do it.

note ignore the yellow info on it. As this was used also to help clean up wiring.

The only one I dont have on there is the side case fan. Those blow are in as intakes.

As for which way fans point there is a ^< on it. One points rotation of fan the other points direction of which it blows air.

Unfortunately that is very different from his current case.

jjb82177 trust me mate, use top and rear for exhaust, and the sides for intakes. Simple as 2+2 thumb.gif

Not if you side fans are intake.
We want airflow not airblow . We want cool air flowing in and heated air flowing out with none or as little as possible of the heated air mixing with cool air that is going to component to cool them... Because hot air does not cool components very well. wink.gif
