Need help to get this system cooled down. - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Yeah ok i did the update on my system stuffs.

And after clearing out all those ****ty wires (Good god, takes 4 hours to rewire all the things) temperature drops a lil' and the chassis is not as heaty anymore, =)

Still, i'd like to give a try to get a CPU cooler or something better to cool my system down still.
I observed my fans is running; Fan1 is 2170-2200 RPM, with the Fan3 at 1419 RPM all the way. Was wondering should i change Fan3? It is my side chassis fan btw.

I'm just curious but if you want to add a cooler thats good and all, but are you worried about your current temperatures? Because these are perfectly good temperatures... But that said, everyone here had perfectly good temperatures at one point, and then you want a little more out of it.. If your planning on keeping stock settings I would keep what you have unless you just wanna tinker.

FIRST OFF
-Pull everything out of your case
-Clean the inside of dust (gentle vacuum cleaner or compressed air)
-Clean your components
-Put the components back in and take careful consideration to cable management, if you do it correctly the first time you wont have to do it again.

UPGRADES
-CPU Air cooler
-Higher CMF case fans
-Dust covers

Its really the little this that count, also try bumping up the fan speed if you can stand the noise.

Ok i did what was told for your "First Off" option.
Managed to clear off all the cables to the back of the chassis (The 'hidden' compartment at the side, the other side of the visible chassis that allows you to see the inner).

I have this fan at the side, but the RPM seems to be fixed to 1.4k RPM. Is there a way to twink it to higher or it will stay the same?
