Do I really need to worry about cooling?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a HAF 922 case and it is a very open and well ventilated case. I have 4 case fans. 3 (1 intake, 2 exhaust) are blowing at 40% and are monitored with a NZXT Sentry Mesh, the other case fan I have hooked up to the board and it is set on "quiet" mode in the bios.

I also have one of those coolermaster hyper cpu heatsinks. I have a 965 BE cpu running at stock speeds and I overclocked my gpu a small bit and it is using the stock fan that came with it.

My CPU runs at around 40C and my gpu's fan usually doesn't get over 70% unless I am running a really resource heavy game

With all of that said, do I really need to worry about anything overheating?

You're not even close to having anything to worry about.  You'd have to have like three overclocked 7970s in order to have something to worry about.  ;)

 

Still, which video card do you have?

Those are actually really good temperatures, and you don't need to improve anything, for your peace of mind, you could go watercooling with a push and pull setup

You should be look at these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?SID=9n2bfoGJEeKw-JpS-IhuZg0_OylS3_E3M_0_0&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item=14-131-484&cm_sp=

They have been going on sale for ~$210 all week. It should be called the 7930 since it's nuttered 7950 chip, not the same as the 7870 chip. Almost same speed as 7950 when OCed.

You would only need to worry if you had like three 7870s.  Your cooling setup is overkill for a single video card.
