Default Re: Best way to lower ambient temps?

Could you post a picture of your case?

Long video cards can wreak havoc on case air flow. In addition, I've noticed that two 120mm fans and an 80mm just don't cut it with quad core and high end graphics cards.

I'm thinking that, worst case scenario, you will need another case. I've always mounted extra 120mm fans IN my case at points where I know hot air builds up. I use zip ties and insulated electrical wires to do so. I usually point it to force air from building up under the 8800. That's the biggest problem I've had.

Again, post some pics of your case or just a floor model of it and we'll dissect the airflow for you and get you fixed up!
