Help me improve the airflow in my case

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I know I NEED a new case but I just don't have money for it yet because I just bought a 15000 dollar car. So hopefully after a moth or two I can buy one. But for now I guess I have to work with what I have....I just posted a few pictures....please let me know how I can improve the airflow in my case and which directions should the fans be pointing.

Need better pics of the entire inside of the case. list your current fans and where they are. Also is there a budget to buy newer fans?

Put your front and two side panel fans as intake, and put your rear fan as exhuast. that should be good, then do a little bit of cable management.

If you are worried about cpu temps, you should look into a new cpu cooler.

Thanks man....Yea managing your cables is probably the hardest part. Do you mean cable management on the inside or outside...i thought I took care of the inside cables pretty well.

Eighter speedfan is way off or you'll need to re-seat your cpu cooler if you don't want to spend money on a after market one. 46 degrees is on the high side for an idling amd cpu.

I just installed the CPU yesterday with AS5 ...it should go down another 3-4 degrees once the thermal sets in which is inline with pretty much what everyone else is getting....It doesn't cross 55 when I'm gaming...so I can live with that for now....I think proper airflow in the case can help it a little as well which is why I'm asking for some suggestions.

some new case fans would help as those are im guessing stock case fans which means they are most likely crappy. is there any money in a budget? really like previous ppl said a new heatsink would be more beneficial than case flow. There isnt much you can do with that case as it seems to me its missing alot of "enthusiast" grade case options such as wiring holes and lots of fan areas.

some cable management helps alot. Also what are your ambient temps?

also get a real temp monitor such as hwmonitor, coretemp, or real temp. Speedfan is total crap.
