strk your case @ 45c does not help your cpu...

wow... whats dumping all that heat in there?

air is generally pulled from the case down over the cpu to cool it... naturally if there is a bigger difference in temps you will have a cooler running cpu...

I have an antec server case and @ the moment only 1 case fan... using stock cooler...

2 hdd's, an AIW 9700pro with stock cooler and a psu with 1 92mm fan...

if your case is @ 45 consistently there is likely an air-flow problem... if I were to plug back my other 3 case fans my temps would plummet but its a lot quieter with 1

I don't know your case or your airflow so it would be hard to tell...

you may want to take a look around your case and improve cabling and eliminate dust... dust if not taken care of can greatly increase the heat within a case...
