hello all,
just thought id ask what case temps you are running
and also what type of case/set up you are using?
also any mods and how much improvement you got out of em.
my case temp with room temp of 27c went up to nearly 39c(under load) and 35 at idle, thats partly cause i have the worst case in the world hehe
i went out and bought a panaflo 120 mm fan to help fix it :)

About 27C here my board runs at 34C (Heatsink only) this is with an Antec 1080AMG w/ 3 2000rpm LED 80mm intake. My last outtake fans died VOID Evercool fans!! 1st one died in 4 months and this one lasted just under 1 year long life my ass!!!

well ive done it, i just went out and bought a new case, its the antec 1000 amg. when i get some time (around early next week) ill install my junk into it. i got a 120mm fan that i havent used yet and there isnt any space in the front for it so ill use it as a blow hole up top.

I have a Athlon 1700 (tbred core), 5000 rpm hsf, 3000 out the back, power supply with 2 fans, and a pci slot fan.

CPU runs 40-42c
System runs 34-38c

System use to run 40-42c until I unpluged the intake fan :eek:

Yep, Someone told me about this, and whalah, the intake fan was causing the temps to get higher, because air wasn't seeping in from other places, to cool down the peripherals.

Go figure

My CPU is cooled by a 3000rpm Volcano 7+ 5000rpm's is too loud! I guess the fastest fan in my computer would be the one on my RADEON 9800 which runs at ????rpm's

just made my first blow hole, after thinking long and hard on the best and cheapest way to go about it i decidsed to use a jigsaw, that with a good file and the jobs done cheap and easy. i was quite suprised on how well it ended up. better than paying AU$100 for a hole saw!

Usually, sub-20C. I haven't tested it to be sure since I put in the 5700 Ultra.
