    Alright, I am wondering how you go about putting extra fans on your case or in it, so you can get better air flow, then im also wondering where do you guys get those readings from about the temperatures? So I can test my system and what is a good temp to keep it at in Feriegnheight (Check spelling I know thats wrong) Thanks ahead of time.

    System and CPU temps should be read with either software supplied with the mobo or usin' MBM5 if it supports ya mobo. A normal thermometer will tell ya room temp, ;)

    Check your MBM5 readings with a thermal probe............

    Watch inflow and out flow totals on your fans and thermal probe your case for hot spots ( ie> poor flow), the worst spot, typically is the top of your case, unless you have a blow hole, for example.
