Bah, that's not lame. You gotta make the air go with the flow lol. Make sure your rear expansion slot covers are on and your front bay covers are on. If that's where you have your fan, then you should be fine since there's a mesh filter at the front. I highly suggest to change your thermal paste if you haven't done so in 5 years lol.

So, thermal paste on the video card? Hmm. Is that hard to do? Remember, my computer is not having any problems (no crashes). It's just hot as you can see.

BTW, interesting air pressure. That is hard to manage in a hot room. Haha.

If you have PWM case fans, they'll adjust according to what the sensors say. My case fans are at 1250 rpm, my CPU is at 1450 rpm, PSU 1175 rpm, and GPU at 1500 rpm. Are you overclocked? That could contribute to high temps in your case, especially if your ambient air temp is hot. I would recommend reapplying thermal paste on the video card and CPU. It's not too hard. There are a lot of tutorials on youtube. I'm not sure if Arctic Silver 5 is still the go-to paste, but that's what I've always used. Keep in mind that the paste will break down after so many years that you'll have to replace it. You should see your temperature drop on your parts after like 100 hours of break-in of normal PC use.

No OCing. I don't like that stuff. I want stability. Ah OK. I will try thermal paste on the old video card later on.

BTW, when I say loud I meant the high pitch sound. Not the loud spinning (I'm OK with that).

Are your fans connected to the motherboard PWM (three/four pin connector) or are you using the Molex connectors?

I am not sure. I didn't build and clean my computers. I am not a hardware person.

Lol YouTube is full of helpful how-to videos, my friend. Just make sure when working with electricity/electronics, you secure your power. So, unplug your power cord, turn your PSU off if it has a switch, and dive right in . Make sure you ground yourself. If you don't have a grounding mat or wrist strap, you can just touch a metal part of the case every now and then to discharge any static build up in your body. If you would like to advance your computer knowledge, stick around nvnews, ask questions, post answers, and if you want, buy yourself a CompTIA A+ Essentials book. It's like the Bible of computers. I've had mine since 10th grade and I still reference to it.

The CompTIA book won't help you with DIY things. Grab MaximumPC magazines for DIY stuff. You'll learn things hella fast with those two pieces of literature.

Thanks, but I have limitations since I am disabled so... I can handle simple things like USB cables. :/
