    I already removed the tube and after that my temps were 48C at idle and 52C at stress (I think I didnīt put enough AS3 to the heatsink now) . Today I removed those metal plates from the PCI slots (where the tape is in the upper picture) and I put 80mm fan there. The fan spins about 2000rpm and sucks about 25C air in to the case. Putting that fan to the PCI slots is the best thing I have ever done to my computer cooling! My CPU temp dropped 6C and is now constant 42C at idle and about 46C at stress!!! My mobo temp is 27C at idle! Now Iīm satisfied for my temps!! :hammer: :thumb: :thumb:

    PS. I may show you some pics if I buy that digicam somewhere in the near future... ;)

    OMG, you are REALLY lucky you didn't fry your vid card (or mobo or ram, or anything else, because that TUBE was metal, and if it had touched ANY conductive element, its all over for that component. And don't think 'you had it balanced just right' because if you move your PC, bump it or anything, could have dislodged your tube and bad stuff would have happened.

    Never leave anything conductive in your case unless it is securely anchored down, and certainly not touching anything electrically 'hot'

    Tomi_S: You still ought to look at this duct setup ->http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthre...?threadid=9308

    might have to read on down a bit. I run 26-27 C temps overclocked at idle and around 30 to 32 at full load. No metal parts inside and the only thing not absolutely securely bolted down is the light styrofoam BurgerKing drink cup, and if it dislodged it's not conductive. That cup, by the way, controls the flow of outside air DIRECTLY into the the CPU HS fan and there is still enough cooling left that it does an admirable job on the rest of the set up.

    I have the Power Supply that has an intake and ouput fan out the back... a side case fan 120mm blowing out, and the intake fan over the CPU and of course the CPU fan on the HS.. plus that little fan on the Northbridge. No extra intake or exhaust fans. System runs pretty good that way.

    I defenitely would worry about any metal tubes within the case.

    The tube was anchored quite well and there was duct tape between the tube and my vid card! ;) :rolleyes: :hammer:

    Here you can see the black tape on the tube. I also marked the place where my new fan is. (sorry for the bad picture quality) :p
