    Ok, I took out the mobo in preparation to remove the HSF and examine sensor location. I restarted and temps dropped by 20C! Max with UD running is 48.4C and I haven't changed anything yet. So it became immediately obvious that it was my case setup. After some thought I decided that the 92mm exhaust fan behind the cpu is starving the "little" delta for fresh air to blow over the sink.

    I was wondering if I mounted another 92mm fan in the door right over the delta if that would solve the problem or even consider a 120mm (but don't have one handy). Just too lazy to work out air flows. ;) Anyone else run across something like this?

    thx JM

    I've always found that a good case fan positioned over the top of the HSF works well and in my case cuts the noise of those screamin' 60mm fans down a bit as well as supplin' fresher air. ;)

    :Dya could pipe the air off the 92, as well. Those hoarble little plastic cpu fan adaptors work really every well to hold the pipe. This would focus feed your cpu fan, dispite your environmental conditions.

    I have two 92mm intake fans are on the bottom. My practice box was my compaq case. It you haven't looked at a presario case lately, that bezel is a mis-shapen monster So my consideration of ducting the front lasted about 2ms. It was still a chore! Whatever anyone my think of the computers they produce, their cases are WELL made. I got in about a weeks worth of practice with my dremel. went through about a dozen reinforced cutting disks, just to put in the intakes :eek:

    I might attempt to duct a 92mm fan over the cpu. Unfortunately, I am a little burnt out on case hacking for now. Gonna just let it sit on my table for a few more days before I think about cutting anything else :p
