psu can make idle temps go up?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So today I flipped my psu ( fan now in taking from the inside) and my 7950's idle temps went from 33c to 41c is this normal?

so the fan is now blowing at the gpu?
if yes, then the airflow in your case is disrupted

This can be expected. A change in static pressure can have drastic changes to the temperatures of your hardware. Instead of taking air from outside the case, it's taking it from the inside. Thus; creating more of a vacuum then there previously was. AKA, lower static pressure.

Try throwing a 120mm fan as an intake, just to test if that's the exact source of the heat - There could be many variables.

So I added another 120mm fan as a bottom intake and idle temps are now at 33-35c and my room is hot from a 2 hour battlefield session, alot better then when I was getting 41-43c idle in a cool room. now I need to order some more fans because this one does not fit my color layout.biggrin.gif
