Ok, the case has 6 fan positions. Front, back, 2 side, 2 top.

Front - Currently has an intake fan.

Back - Empty - CPU cooler exhaust fan is 3 inches from the vent, blowing out.

Side Bottom - Currently has an intake fan.

Side Top - Nearly pressing against the top of the CPU cooler, no way to fit a fan.

Top Rear - Empty

Top Forward - Empty.

If we're only looking at putting two fans in (probably both exhaust on the top?), I won't need a controller (I managed to find 2 more fan plugs on the mobo).

Would that be enough? Right now, with the floor fan blowing in, my temps are rock solid, even with folding and gaming at 4.5 and 1.32 volts. They had been nearly 80c without the big fan. With the side cover off and no big fan running, they're like 76 or so. With the fan running, highest they get is 68, which I'm happy with.

EDIT: What controls the speed of the case fans? Are they automatic? Would it be possible to change the speed of the case fans without a fan controller?

Even if you don't have more fan plugs, you can just plug them directly into your PSU using a molex-to-pin converter which comes in every fan box.

If it were me, this is how I'd install ur case fans;

Front - Intake - OK

Back - Exhaust (Even if CPU cooler is close, the back exhaust WILL HELP.

Side Bottom - Intake

Top Rear - Exhaust

Top Forward Exhaust

4.5GHz here we go.

Lol, it's almost amusing to watch the graph. With the case side off and the big fan off, with just folding and no gaming temps creep up to 70c pretty quickly. As soon as I hit the fan, they drop to the low 60s.

I remember using a fan like that back when I had a crappy cooler.

Do we really think adding some case fans is going to be able to get even close to what this huge fan can do?

I'm quite sure that addind the Rear and top exhaust (3 fans) taking hot air out should help a couple degrees, probably not a huge improvement but I'd say at least 2-3ºC.

Lol......with the case side on in my current setup at 4.5ghz I was nearly hitting 80c. With the case side off and the big fan running at 4.5ghz, I'm hitting 68c. I need 12c, not 2-3c.

You should see a good 3ºC at least, you're probably going to improve more like 5ºC but not as much as 12ºC.

If you want proper temps for 4.5GHz even with no fans then go grab a better cooler.

As far as I appreciate your offer, we don't need an Athlon II x4 right now.
