Well you will want to move your PC to the coolest part of the room in general. Also try having the front fans Exhausting and the rear one Intaking and the top one Exhausting..i dont know if that will make any difference this time.

well it seemed that having the rear as an intake was good :S i dont get much air coming in from the front i believe i dont think that much air can travel.. anyways i was really hoping that i could turn my BT but it doesnt look like i can :S by turning it i would have had alot more air flow..
hm...........if the bt was turned then it would make things so much better... the air from the rear intake would go through the BT hit the air from the front causing it to stop then get sucked up through the top :S but nooooooo it has to be difficult..... argh

okat so i have a hole in the top with a 120mm now blowing out and all the rest blowing in.. my case is kinda limited so its the best i can do :S anyways..

here are my questions now...
okay should i change the rear from blow in to blow out?
dilemma: if blowing in it hits the BT directly but i think the air stops there...
and if it blows out i dont think its grabbing much hot air cuz the BT is there..

also the top fan is right inbetween the back of my cd drives and my PSU providing a perferfect place to blow in if i choose to do that..
but i currently have it blowing out..
the front 120mm fan as i said is blowing in and the 80mm on the side is feeding directly to the BT
my idle is anywhere from 33-37C and my max load was like 59.5 O.O but thats playing counterstrike O.O
it usually lingers from 45-52C though when i watch it.. 45C atm..
anyone got any ideas on fan direction?

okay my computer is really starting to act funny
i was playing WoW and my comp crashed
and i restarted as usualy my bios had reset itself and went back to stock settings i went back into my bios and lowered my clock speed down to about 3.62 but im looking on speedfan and im noticing that there is a temperature that is idling at 51C my processor is 44 atm and im afreaid to play a game or something that wold heat it up
anyways im thinking of getting a new PSU because the one i have is getting bombed by everything that i have in my case
i think that the reason my comp is overheating is not from fan placement but rather about my PSU not giving the fans enough power to that they run fast enough.
im not entirely sure though
its jsut a hypothesis
im gonna shut my computer off and let it cool down now
drop me a message ill be back in about 20 minutes
