Case modding for improved airflow

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi! I've modded my case so there is much more airflow, will post images tomorrow. I am just wondering what do you think about these temperatures, can I get them any lower, because I want to get maximum of this.
After 10 hours:
Core temp - 31 C
HD - 32
System - 36

I've got this Abit I-G31 mobo for testing, I modded my PSU (changed it's fan), added one 80mm fan on the bottom of the case and one 12mm cooling my memory. Will add one more on the front side and left from the CPU (on the side). Btw, I use Intel's box cooler.

P.S. What do you think, what will the temp. be like when I buy HyperTX2 + add these fans?

You dont need to do all that. Get some good airflow going into the case and get yourself a Zalman CPU cooler and blow it out the rear exhaust. I just built a c2d E7200 for someone and overclocked it from 2.53 to 3.17 and before the zalman it was spiking 75*C. Now it won't break 35
