wow, should this happen?
« on: March 31, 2004, 09:18:20 PM »

i have been using my computer all day and the MBM temp was 56/35/34 C
i turned it off and came back 30 min later and it was 22/42/38 C

...this means I need more case airflow/ cooling, right? any suggestions as to how to fix this without a dremel?

case fan in the back (as that is the only spot for it in my case)

i am getting a new case and HSF in a couple of weeks, so this just needs to be a temporary solution...

Yeah more fans can never hurt.  But those temps aren't dangerous.

take off the side and use a box fan.

Make sure your heatsink and fans are clean.  I think there was an review here at Gideontech about how cleaning your pc will lower temps.

also check your case and make sure any cables or wires arent blocking your air flow to your CPU...i had some custom wireing that was blocking my cpu fan (not enough to stop it ) and it made a big difference in my temps
