E8400 getting hot air from PSU

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi guys ,

So i have a SITUATION here and heres my problem



My PSU fan is directly faced to my CPU heatsink thus pushing hot air right into it and I am furious about it so back to teh question -> on my E8400 i have HYPER TX3 cooler running 44c idle and 61 c load with prime and im not satisfied about it , could it be that it is so hot because of PSU fan blowing hot air directly to heatsink?

I'd change one of the words in that image before a mod sees it...

No problem. Now, onto the subject of your PSU and CPU cooling.

Is your E8400 overclocked? Because if it's overclocked somewhat, those aren't too bad temps, but if it's at stock they definitely should be better.

I don't really think that it could be a problem with your PSU, because that fan should be pulling in air and blasting it over the PSU components before it goes out the back of the PSU. I can't think of any PSU that has an interior fan which exhausts heat inside the case.

If you could fill in your system specs, though, that'd give everyone a better idea of what your setup is like. Linky:

Oh damn didnt know that it was pushing air into him : / then i dont really know the problem because temps with stock were 55 idle 74 load and now a bit better but not as I want it to be. Any ideas what may be causing that much heat?

It could be that there's just not enough air flowing through your case. What case do you have and what fans do you have in it?

You want more air in then going out.

That's a matter of opinion.

I kind of prefer to have more exhaust fans that intake fans.
