Heat improvement NZXT Case

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a pretty good case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...gital%20artict

(4) 120mm fans [intake, and 1 exhaust] and (2) 140mm exhaust [top]

Now, If I have good cable management, which I do, and the case provides pretty good cooling, and my CPU is sufficiently cooled with a CPU cooler (Xigmatek)..... what else can I really do?

Should I buy some stronger case fans instead of the stock ones? Will this make a difference? What is there to look for? RPM? CFM?

I don't really know else how to improve my airflow and my CF 4890's are getting hot

The RPM/CFM thing matters if you want great cooling but tons of noise or decent cooling and silent.
i.e. high RPM will mean louder but better cooling(usually).

You could always try putting new Thermal Paste on your 4890s.
And case fans couldnt hurt.
But with your case setup and parts your only real option for lowering temps a lot is water cooling.
