My computer case is always warm after a couple of hours .

How come?

should i sleeve my wires to improve airflow? ( i'm really not too sure if
i can even sleeve it) me afraid that i would wreck it...


Rig showcase if you want to see my case and tell me how i can improve it...

ALSO this should help a little bit open any unused 5inch bays to allow for better ventilation. if you have a fan to fit the hole in the bays set it to suck in air and
set your side panel to blow out and all your rear fans blow out.
never suck from the backbecause your PSU is dumping BTUs out the back

if ur afraid of sleeving there are other options like stretchable sleeving that will go over the molex connectors, just have to look around for it

Huh? Why won't your old man let you? Anyway, I can't tell from your photos, but do you have fans in the front and back of your case?

I'm a member of another forum (not for computers, I would never cheat on Overclock.net
) that uses a + and - REP system, and it causes more headaches and complaints, and, well, whining than is needed. People can be petty and mean, and then there are trolls and spammers. It's just a hassle.
