Need help to get this system cooled down.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
This is my PC btw. Pretty much all time round, the HDD is around 20-30 degree celcius, however, my GPU runs at 40-60 degrees (Depends on GPU load, high end games with Ultra Graphics settings gives at least a 50-55).
I am having a side fan as well as seen, but seems like airflow isn't as good as i think it is.
I have 2 front fans, 1 side, 1 back, and 1 top and cooling fans for RAMs too. GPU runs on its own fans as well.

All chassis fans are 120mm, less the top one which is 200mm. They are all Antec 900 stock fans btw, and my CPU fan is i7 960 default cooler.

Any recommendations to get this heat box to cooler down better?
All ears for all comments.
If need another angle of how this inside looks like, please do tell.

Thank you =)

those are good temps for gpu and hard drives. what are your CPU temps?

20c for a hard drive temp is amazing considering that is lower then most people ambient.

What is your GPU?
The rest sounds OK, if you're not overclocking then stock is normally enough.

GPU is GeForce 460 GTX Twin Frozrill.
CPU imma not sure though. I don't have what is required to check on my CPU temp.
And I tried to clear the wires, not much effect though.
And i think i lack a temperature monitor or something.

EDITED: Just checked; its around 40-60 range depending on what i run.
What is the TJ Max btw?

Any recommendations? I'd like to get a CPU cooler too, but just not sure whether to still go on with fan cool or such.

whats your budget?
this is widely considered the best budget cooler

the jury is still out on which of these 2 are the best but they very close
