« on: December 16, 2003, 09:36:45 PM »

Hi, i just got a new case and it only has 1 intake fan and no exhaust lmfao How fking stupid of me. I didnt know (I will be modding case soon for a blowhole and cutting the 120MM fan area into two 80MM but thats beside the point...

Right now running Folding@Home
My CPU temps are 42.5*C ... I remember getting 35 or so in my old case with intake and exhaust fans.... Is this ok? And what temp should i start to worry at?

My 2500 (O/C'd to 2310MHz) runs about the same at full load, and 37-38 at idle. My LX-6A19 case has 2-120MM fans running at 1/2 speed most of the time.

Why would you want to replace a 120 with 2-80MM? If you use the right 120, you'll actually get better airflow with much less noise!

i would not worry about your temps... i have a shuttle and my idle temps are 38c and 46-49load... so i wouldnt worry. you might try some artic silver 5, that brought my temps downs from 40c idle to 38c idle and dropped load temps about 2-3c
