Well i guess cutting will be a problem though, are there any other suggestions?

To cool my CPU i actually only have the stock cooler that's given with the cpu

Well, heres a no cost one, try reversing your fans. Have the top left exhaust blow in and have the bottom right intake exhaust, along with the additional front fan exhausting. Also make sure your psu is mounted so that it takes in air from the bottom and exhausts it out the back. This isnt ideal because heat rises, but may drop down your temps with what your have to work with for now.

Looks like a sealed off box to me, not rly appropriate for getting 400w of heat out of without large temperature difference vs ambient

Honestly i'd either mod quite a bit and buy new fans, or just leave side panel off

Yup, I have a strikingly similar case, the New Thermaltake Soprano. I've ended up having to keep the side panel off just to stay under 95c with my GPU. There's really nowhere to add a second fan. So much for silence.

These extreme silence cases are pretty good until you run a 400+ watt power load and suddenly they're at 40c inside in a 20c room lol

We need to improve airflow.
  • Open up the back to flow as much air out of case as possible. Remove all unused PCI slot cover, the 2x round rubber grommets, etc.
  • if things are geting to hot when gaming, open up the front door to allow easier airflow to intake fans.
  • Move your HDD and SSD to 5.25" bays and remove all HDD cages
  • I assume your CPU cooler fan is PWM controlled so
    • Get 3 good 120mm PWM cooler / radiator fans (Gentle Typhoon AP-15 is very good but not PWM) I'm no really up of 120mm fans. ehume knows them much better than I
    • Get a Gelid 4 way PWM splitter with PSU power to control CPU and case fans.
  • This will allow the CPU heat to control not only the PWM CPU fan but also the PWM case fans fans speed.
The 1st and 2nd links in my sig explain PWM control and case cooling.


Edit:
This is an older fan test but Martin does good work. Notice the cooling, airflow and noise of Gentle Typhoon AP-15

if it will fit and not hit your rams, i would at least get a Cooler Master 212 cpu cooler and some MX-2 or 4 thermal paste. I would not leave an unlocked i5 at stock for 3 reasons . . .

1. you joined ocn
2. it is a K
3. the gpu is begging for it to be oc'ed.

So many replies don't know where to start!

Deepor,
  • Thanks for your time and research doing on my case! I removed the unused PCI brackets to improve the Airflow and the top DVD drive cages. The fans you suggested, i read about them and they seem to be great, as for the CPU cooler, True Spirit 120M (aside from the sound). (Pictures included)

Cyro999
  • I posted some of my own pictures, i uploaded them at imgur. Link is at the bottom of this post.

cpmee
  • I guess reversing the fans could work if the physics are right. But i would do this when it really needs to be done. As for now i am going to buy some new fans for the case and probably a CPU fan as well. I know there has been said that a CPU fan is not needed for the airflow, but i guess if i look in my case this stock cpu cooler looks so small/cheap/aweful (haha).

Cyro999
  • yeah i am ready for a bit modding i guess.

cookieboyeli
  • I am going to keep the side panel off until i finished modding my computer with fans.

doyll
  • Unused pci brackets have been removed earlier on, now i removed the rubber grommets as well.
  • Replacing my HDD and SSD to the 5.25 Bays and remove the cages is really clever.
  • I guess i will go for the suggested CPU cooler from Deepor True Spirit 120M (ONLY WHEN I GO FOR OC'ing) and since you question yourself if those fans are the ones, aren't the Cooler Master Jetflo's better? The Splitter is a must i guess, because it wouldn't surprise me if i need more fans in the future and that splitter is going to be really useful.
  • Those are indeed great results from Martin.
  • The links seem very informative, i will read them!

If this thread doesn't die i can post the results of my temps afterwards.

I got so much help from all of you! Many thanks for all of your effort!

Thermalright Macho 120 will fit too. it's only 150mm tall and has 6 pipes compared to TRUE Spirit 120 have 4 making it a few degrees cooler.

Update
  • After removing all the things you guys said and i removed the side panel from my case 'temporarly' (because this is not what i want to keep doing). The temperatures decreased a lot! i could hit 90 degrees with my cpu and now it takes a while for it to be able to hit the 80! Same story goes for my GPU, from 85-90 to 70-76. Now i am at work and when i get home afterwards i'll test my temps again and post a picture of Hw Monitor.

The thermalright Macho 120 it is then, thanks for your research doyll.
I chose the True Spirit 120 because the first picture on google had the same RAM as mine next to it (Crucial Ballistix). That would be atleast a relief to know it wouldn't hit my RAM, but i go as you (doyll) suggested for the TM 120. I will order it today.

Which fans should i chose?
Scythe Gentle Typhoon (1850RPM) - PWN: NO
Cooler Master Jetflo (2000RPM) - PWN: YES
Choice made: I will go for the CM Jetflo since i can't find anywhere in my country to buy the Typhoons and it is a bit more expensive though.

I'll try to order these today ASAP and will probably receive them in 2 days if i am lucky and post results!
