Cooling advice.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey

My CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 (3.20GHz)

I got a new cooling system for christmas:


Ok, I installed it, and with the side off, the temperature when idle, is 22c, when playing COD Modern Warfare 2, it goes up to 44 - 46c.

When I put the side on, the temperature seems to just keep going up and up. It hit 50 when playing MW2, and it seemed to just keep going up. Airflow problem? I have 1 case fan, it's a cheap piece of crap that came with the case, it rotates slowly and I can stop it with my finger, it has no "give" in it..

I have 2 fans I could put in, my question is, should they exhaust? or pump air into the case??


Thanks

intake. if you only have one fan..do you mean the case itself only has a single fan?

i guess best bet is to do 1 intake 1 exhaust so that you can channel an airflow path.
