A little bit of advise about cooling if you will.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I built this computer about 8 month ago and never seemed to note of any cooling problems. I recently downloaded HW monitor to check the temp. and fan speeds and stuff like that. when I looked at the temp. readings in HW there were pretty high the coolest temp. in the list was the cpu and it was 80^f. other temps were 169^f for one of the mother board sensors 89^f for my solid state drive and 84 for my video card. So I let it sit for a bit to cool down i came back and it was only around 10^f cooler. My case has one 120mm and 2 80mm plus the cpu fan and the gpu fan and the psu fan so this should not be happening.
Can I get some general advise about cooling it seems to be one of the only areas in computers I have not learned a ton about yet. thanks
