at idle mb is 40 degrees celsius, and cpu is 44 degrees. I have two 120 mm fans, i hooked them up to power supplies fan 4 pin molex, maybe i should hook them up to regular 4 pin molex for more power? Any suggestions? btw, i got temps in the asus probe. Mike
You could try removing your IHS if you are feeling a little adventurous. There is a really good guide to it on the site. I did it the other day and my CPU idles at 26*C with stock voltage and ambient temperatures of about 70*F or about 21*C.
Also, those "Fan Connectors" on your PSU are pretty much worthless, unless you want a quieter pc. I have that same PSU, and plug your fans into "normal" 4 pin connectors, because the "fan connecters" REALLY SLOW DOWN your fans, trust me. My pc is loud now, but my temps dropped liek 6C from plugging them into normal 4pin psu connectors.
yes i was looking into that phantom, and on the topic of as5, only a pea size drop in the middle, i meant if i put more as5 on, im gonna clean the thermal paste off, lap my hsf, then reapply. Not put extra on haha. Mike
well i just did some serious cable managment, the psu only has one non fan 4 pin molex, so i just hooked up both fans and hd to that linking to each other. The pc still sounds the same, so I dunno if it worked or not. The next items I'll be getting is 1 more 120mm fan for the front intake and a fan controller. Hopefully running the fan controller will let me adjust fan even if i have to use the blue fan connector.
