Funny thing is. I don't feel any heat at all .. my HD is at 36C and when I put my hand on it I feel it.

My video card is like 40C and it feels like it.

But even when I touch the copper part of my BT, it feels so cold lol.
SiSandra tells me that it's supposed to be at 34C ..

Kinda weird.

Anyways, I've removed all case fans for now, because they are noisy. When I'll add 1 or 2 noiseless 120 mm case fans .. my temps should go down in 5-6C.

Don't worry about air flow in my case . Everything is optimised.

I've got air tunnels where needed on purpose.

Edit : No BT fan noise lol, it is my northbridge fan .
ya it doesnt sound like its tight enough on the IHS, push down on the bracket and then tighten the nut on the screw, dow this to all 4 corners of the bracket, and push pretty hard so you can get the nuts pretty tight...you want them failry snug, but them all to be evenly tight aswell...so just get them pretty tight on there, but not tooo tight

Make sure you tighten it slowly going back and forth. A small driver-bit like you use in a cordless screwdriver should do just fine.
