Getto cooling

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Dell (Ewww i know) but i decided it needs better cooling so... There is a front panel that lifts up so you can plug in headphones there is also a usb port there so i decided to RIP it off.that help some with air flow but then i decided to remove the IO panels (im not sure if thats there name or not)in the back because there is one in between my gfx card and the modem so now i have some extra air flow.

just making gaps will help a little, but what you really need to make a noticeablle difference is a fan.

Air vents only help marginally. They do nothing unless there is a major air pressure or temperature difference between the outside and inside of your case.

Your PC is probably 4-5 yrs old? Adding additional venting now is probably moot since it has been running fine this whole time. You may want to just clean out the dust.
Once again...

Run it without a side cover, clean up the wires a little, replace the thermal paste on the cpu heatsink and your gpu, and mabye some faster fans. That's about all I can tell you good luck. BTW crap-o-matic needs an upgrade, save up your cash bro, christmas is rolling around the corner, ask you parents for, I don't know, mabye a new case so you can help with your air flow. If your a gamer, stop wasting your time and money on that console and put your money towards a nice gaming computer. I know my computer aint the best in the world, but she works fine and when overclocked correctly is fast enough for my gaming. Good luck, BTW don't be afraid to break out the dremel!

If you want better cooling, and you have room, cut a 60, 80, 92, or 120mm fan hole on the top of your case and insert a fan. That'll help exhaust the air out, also, if your not affraid of opening your case and voiding your warranty, if it still is under warranty, then open it up and clean your computer out. Also, if you have a dremel, cut out oddly placed plastic pieces so that air flows better. OH! And, you could cut a 80, 120, 140, 200, or 250mm fan hole in the side panel and put a nice, big, low rpm fan pushing fresh air into the case.
