post #1 of 17
Thread Starter

cpu- amb- 18c load- 33c
gpu- amb- 33c load- 58c

Other thread deleted. This thread renamed

Looks pretty good.
You could move your Sound card down. Comp USA sells a blue fan thing that will take air in from the outside and blow up on the GPU.

You could get a Big Typhoon. it is the best CPU air cooler out there.

All air should move from front(in) to back(out), and side(in) to top(out).

I call shens on your cpu temps. give us a speedfan screenshot or something cause those temps are amazing for a stock hsf.

umm it looks to me like you have some fans backwars... you shouldnt have the PSU fans blowing into the case,it should be blowing the hot air out the back.... but this guide will help you maximize the airflow, you have tons of fans so thats not a problem, just how they are set up is...

That PSU fan should not be blowing into the case.

just remember that heat rises and the coldest areas are near the floor. so make all exhaust the upper fans and all intake on the lower fans.
