That's pretty cool.

Only if the air flows correctly with the case closed and it likely doesn't in a pre-built. Opening the case can have positive effects.

they just used the stock heatsink compound and it did look like pretty even coverage although there were dots around the outside this morning im going to radioshack and getting artic silver which should work until i do watercooling and can order a proper thermal paste whats the deal with artic silver ceramic? and ill also be picking up coffee filters and some alcohol to clean the surfaces. ill report back on temps well see if its the paste or a bad chip. And right now my system isnt in the haf 932 case its in a smallass mid tower where everything is crammed so thats one reason i think im having a heat problem

Why would it not? It comes in the bottom/front and goes out the top/back. The only way you can mess that up is by putting the fans in wrong.

Open the case and the air starts flowing in and out of your case opening rather than being pushed across your parts.

It's a pre-built. Nuff said, really.

It's so common that the fans in a pre-built either suck or aren't used (just empty fan holes) that it often helps to open the case. The stock CPU cooler is also a top-down cooler and as such has little need for the airflow we use with tower coolers and more a need for cool air coming in from the side of the case.

Even one working fan with a closed case is better than an open case. There will be a zone of heat formed around the CPU that won't be removed. Not to mention that you're sucking in a lot more dust and debris that isn't being filtered by the case which will damage the fan.

Well, assuming this is a temporary solution (one really wouldn't want to run with the case open 24/7), the dust thing is of little importance. And I think you'd get better CPU temps with free access to cold air than a fan sucking away hot air. The hot air would rise anyway, so it shouldn't reach critical levels. Would be an interesting experiment.

go to the place you bought it and demand a replacement chip.

That it would. Maybe if it were open and on its side.

But neither solution (pre-built open, pre-built closed) would be close to what you'd get simply by using a quality closed case outfitted with its full complement of fans. I think we can agree on that.

Of course, I'm not an idiot
