3. Your cables are untidy. tidy them up

4. You have insufficient airflow. Buy more case fans . Did anyone used to watch home improve ment? more power!

5. The airflow isn't flowing effectively. Find out how

edit:

Sorry i was doing other things writing the post so I didn't see your other posts. I've got the same setup at the moment, and my temps seem to be alright. I used to have two at the back as well, but I broke one of them messing around.

Just go on froogle and search 80mm case fan. If you dont mind noise you can pick them up for 98p.
Or get a 120mm for the back.

I have a high airflow 80mm fan i bought i just cant mount it, or figure out a way to mount a 120mm on the back.

Do you not have the screws? Mine didn't come with any.

Or are there no screw holes on your case? If you don't want to drill any, just try duct-tape-ing the fan to the case.

Or maybe there isn't a holw at the back for your fan? Again a few modifications will set that straight

I don't see there being any problem with the case panel off, accept less effective airflow and more dust settling. Plus you might knock a drink into your case instead of just on it

Forgot to mention... You can even put fans inside your case in random spots. Hu? You say?

I placed a 80mm fan on top my hard drive which is held by nothing but a forceflex power cable

Reasoning? My hard drive runs at 30C or less thanks to a 76CFM intake fan below it. This creates a cold pocket above the drive; I have made use of it by pointing the free standing fan towards the CPU. This has dropped my temps 1-2C.

I know... I have issues.

Now, as for how you would implement this I dont know, but I am sure you could figure something out if it would help your temps. Just get creative!

EDIT: Oh my... I cannot spell. implimet does not equal implement :withstupi

I leave my side panel off (sometimes BOTh side panels LOL) when I run dual Prime95 stress tests. As was mentioned, as long as it's not on the floor, and you are careful not to dump anything in there (do NOT drink soda or any liquid near it! ) then you're fine..........as long as you can stand the noise.


As to your fan situation, they do make adapters for 120mm fans on 80mm holes.......it just depends on if you have the room.........or, as was mentioned, you can always drill out you're own hole and mount whatever you want.
