Negative case pressure issue?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded my Cooler Master rig with a new Mobo, Cpu, and Graphics card as well as making sure that a filter that I previously had over a vent would stay in place.

Now when I play graphics intensive games I can hear my Cpu or possibly Gpu fan working harder than I think it should. This is immediately alleviated by me cracking open the case, but will start up again a bit after i close the case and don't stop playing the game.

All the fans in my case came pre-installed except for 1 which I replaced because it was faulty. The replacement ran much faster than any of the others and I am worried that it is causing a negative pressure that disables the Cpu fan from getting enough air to the Cpu. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

intel cpu, with a stock cooling fan? i'm guessing it's the gpu fan.

do your gpu temp testing with a repeatable standard, something like furmark, that will generate the same amount of heat every time you run it.

with a gpu utility like msi afterburner, you can see what your gpu temps are, and maybe do some gpu overclocking with it as well.
