I'm pretty sure the air circulation in my case is pretty bad. Here are some pictures I snapped from inside my case.

First pic - Towards the back showing exhaust fan behind the cpu and the power supply exhaust fan above the cpu.

Second pic - Just another angle showing where airflow might be going.

Third pic - The two fans blowing air into the case. They don't seem to be bringing much air inside.

I realize some cabling could be improved but most cables are out of the way of high heat components. Any thoughts? The case allows for a 'blowhole' type fan to be installed at the top of the case. Would that help keep things cool? Which direction would I point the airflow?

Evidently this is a popular case so I thought you all might have some tips. =v) Sorry if this was the wrong forum.

Any ideas? I'm thinking of replacing the two front mounted intake fans since I really don't feel much air going through them. Anyone else with this case notice they're a bit ineffective?

I have a silimar case and i have exactly the same problems, the fans make noise but push no air.

I have the same case. The front fans seem to be pushing some air to me. But it only seems to hit the hard drive which is right in front (usually 16c). Everything else seems to get pretty hot. The graphics card is usually around 68c no load. And around 80-90c under full load. CPU gets pretty hot to. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/images/smilies/cry4.gif
