The temps are getting so uggly these days! 50C on idle is somehting that starts worrying me.

When it comes to cooling solution, i am running on some kind of 'winter quiet mode', the purpose of which was to limit fans to as few as possible. Well, i think i cant afford this during the summer, especially with my overclock.

I'v been out of the game for a long time, i lost my overview about cooling solutions and fans, so i'd be glad if you assisted me with my new cooling solution.

Here is what i got and what i can work with:

Case: ATCS 840

Case fans:
front - default case fan CM, 700 RPM, 19 dBA
top -default case fan CM x 2,700 RPM, 19 dBA (one is disabled)
rear - default case fan CM x 1, 1200 RPM

thats all i got installed right now. I got 2 spared fans Scythe S-FLEX.

Heatsink: Noctua NH-U12P with push/pull p12's, think i got some spared OCZ Freeze paste.

I should also got my Zalman mfc1 fan controller somewhere.. but i am not sure if i want to use that. I'd maybe go for new one.

Any ideas on upgrades are welcome.

the NH-U12P is a pretty good cooler, but for an i7-920 it might not cut it unless you get some higher cfm fans.

I think you should get a Megahalems cooler with some deecent fans, then get some mx-2 / mx-3 / as5 thermal paste.

you case cooling looks fine.
