I am not trying to grill you but its hard for me to talk about air flow and cooling without knowing what your running.

lol leman He's being difficult and i dont think he wants to listen.


Use something other then the stock crap paste that came with the heatsink and go buy something better. Also USE CORETEMP FOR TEMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually not a bad case, I would definately get a front fan on it, as there isn't a lot of passive vent holes. Use coretemp, maybe reseat heatsink.

Yeah 60C is where you want to stop. I would say its time for a heatsink reseating. I would also suggest some good thermal paste. Add that front fan as well. Once that stuff is all done if your still getting high temps its possible that the blue orb just can't handle the 6400, it is without a doubt the hottest running dual core amd on the am2. You could try underclocking the 6400 if you just can't afford a better heatsink, thats assuming that the reseating/better paste/front fan don't fix the issues.
