Blitz, I highly doubt the internet police will be knocking on his door if he's one day late uninstalling the application.

N2Gaming, glad you found it. Close up the case and run a few minutes in Orthos and tell us what happens with the temps. Is your chipset temp around 45C - 50C during load? The stock cooler provides such poor cooling...I never liked it. Plus the noise level from that fan is pretty bad.

Good luck

Joe, good point about the dead spots. This could be another culprit in regards to N2Gaming's issue.

Well, I had a friend have a bright idea to use a twist tie for the fan on like a PIII CPU and he killed the motherboard. I was like, "Dude, I told you not to use a twist tie and just walk 5 minutes down the road to the auto store to get twist ties...durka."

I personally favor a well-engineered solution which is efficient and promotes good internal aerodynamics. By this I mean a design which will allow the air entering the case to move to and through all the critical components (chipset heatsinks, CPU cooler, GPU cooler, etc.), then exit the case, using the minimum number of fans/minimum possible CFMs.

Since air is a fluid, it goes where it is directed (which is the main function of fans, really). Fans accelerate and direct the flow of air. Having a lot of fans inside a case may theoretically do more harm than good, especially if the fans are not positioned strategically and if the fan power is not directed properly (i.e., having strong fans in the wrong places). Poorly-positioned fans create disrupted internal airflow patterns inside a case, creating turbulence and encouraging the formation of "dead spots" where air doesn't move at all (and where heat pockets form).
Damn straight. The only bonus I have to being a smoker is I can easily see where the flow is!

Umm guess I could use incense? Nah that could hurt my lungs!

masking or scotch tape is great for quick mockups and templateing.

I have a roll of Wire just to mount objects. If you are careful you should have no problems. My HS is wired down. Makes it a PITA to remove (reason why I still haven't looked at the chip, if you all remember When I got it it was supposed to be a dual core) But the mount is rock solid.

Talking about Ghetto, My neighbors mount was broken when I replaced his caps and I had a hard time getting the HS to stay level so I leveled it with my buddies kids play dough! LMBO it worked the bomb and his temps are the best they have ever been!

Hueristic, I use scotch tape a lot for securing wires to the chassis. I think the problem with my case is the thingies/heatsinks to the side of my cpu is in an area where there is no air flow. the case may have been designed for micro atx who know's I could never find out who made it but one thing is for sure I like it and it's very stout.

thinker, this is what I have after 40 min of orthose. of course it's not as hot as it would be while playing a game cause orthose does not stress the gpu's as much as a game right??? any way that's why I left Bioshock on while running orthose thought it might help heat things up quicker so we can see what's going on.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

don't forget scotch tape will eventually become brittle and break.

Edit: As you guys can probably tell I have the keyboard in my lap as opposed to only haveing access to the mouse most of the time.

Heuristic, funny that you should mention incense. I actually have used this to study the internal airflow inside my windowed case. Honest to goodness, I have! I don't smoke, so I had to use alternative means!

N2Gaming, that's correct. Orthos only stresses the processor, memory and chipset. How much Vcore are you running again? I get those type of temps on my XP-90C while running Orthos. I would assume your Zalman cooler is a better performer then mine so I am really surprised that you're hitting almost 60C. I'm almost wondering if the surface on your cooler is causing these high temperatures to develop. Do you remember if it was concave, convex, scratched or dented ect? It also could be the poor airflow in your case.

That is about right for your chipset temp. The stock cooler wasn't exactly designed for awesome cooling. When you start playing Bioshock I bet that temperature gets into the 50's. I've heard of many nForce4 chipsets exceeding 60C - 70C and being completely fine so perhaps it's nothing to worry about.

Good luck
