    Glad I could help :cheers: . Ahhh, I see. Well, it looks like it'd be quite difficult to get a fan into the front of that case without dremmeling the heck out of it. Judging from the pics, I'd say make the two fans on the side BOTH intake, then put a fan in that back slot on exhaust (back is always exhaust), and then you have the PSU on exhaust too. That fan in the back on exhaust will extract all the hot air from around the CPU HSF while the cool air coming in at the bottom will be sucked up to it. I think that'll help you quite a bit. You might want to cut away the screen over the fan in the back though, as it'll really restrict its air flow (never understood why manufacturers but such thick screens). Anyways, that should do it. Put in those fans and reattach your heatsink with some arctic silver 5 and I think you'll see your temps go down quite a bit.. : peace2: Mista K6

    OK!

    After my current fan configuration is as follows...

    One 80 mm fan exhaust in the back (even though a 60 mm is supposed to fit there ) one 80 mm up in the front as an intake, 2 on the side panel as intakes and a blower above the graphics card trying to blow on the cpu. I cant get the arctic silver till the weekend. My temps now max at around 57. What are your thoughts? I figured i didnt need the blower on the graphics card cuz it has those 2 side fans flowing on it, but im not sure if the blower is cooling the cpu or just being sucked out the exhaust...


    oh and i noticed that when i start the sandra burn test (using the arithmetic test, thats what i used to check the high temp) the temperature would jump up around 10 degrees almost instantly. Is that whats supposed to happen?

    yeah i know what you mean wiggo, i think ive got my airflow a bit better, i just need to get the new thermal paste and see how my cpu temps are from there. im thinking of adding the top blow hole but as buying a new case is concerned, i just bought this one so i cant buy a new one.

    you know i was wondering...

    my case has a lot of vents and holes, would it be better for the airflow if i sealed the holes so that air could only flow from and out of the fans?

    This is what I would do. Cut all the silly stamped grilles out. Using wire grilles on the side. No grill needed on back. Seal off those holes.
