    I just put 2 92mm intake fans on my side panel so now I have 4 fans pulling air in and 3 fans pulling hot air out, one in is ontop of my case but the temps are still the same, didn't get any cooler...

    the case is sitting at 28c

    all wires are away from fan, no dust... WTF?

    thanks

    I once had a xp 1800+ in std. case that averaged 50 c
    with a thermaltake 7+
    Bad box, bad air flow
    New box 9 fans
    4 on lian li 2 front in, 1 rear out, 1 top out
    3 on power supply
    1 on vid card, 1 on cpu
    BTW all fan settings on medium
    Unless you want to over clock would say
    NO COMPLAINTS MATE

    I imagine presently .. there's an airport
    With an 80mm case fan & 1 slot fan I have 30 degrees inside .. so you must not worry for yours DoNuTjC ..

    You will find that the following configuration is best for air flow.

    For every 1 fan you have blowing into your case you should have 3 blowing out.

    Give that a try... I bet it works for ya!

    I have two fans blowing out one on front lower and one on back higher up to the left of case ..both are 80mm my board temp is 23c-27c
    cpu temps 38-40c idle and under stress can hit 60c

    I dont worry bios is set to beep at 70c and kill it at 75c

    keep in mind I am running an Athlon 1800+ oc'ed at 138fsbx12.5 multipler=giving me 1.73ghz shows up as Athlon 2100+ in sisoftware sandra ..... benchmarks kill the hp 522c Athlon 2000+ by over 20 points in performance test v4 ...

    ive managed to get mine to 15oC once :D by using a Room Fan (you know those massive ones you tend to use in a hot room) :p

    But mine is roughly around 30oC and im happy with it .. sometimes even lower.. wouldnt mind the big fan back tho :D hehe

    Sincerly Alex :cool:

    Where my puter is I dont want fans sucking in there is a baseboard heater about 2 feet away behind the case on the floor and in the summer it gets very hot here high 30c 's and if needed I have used a room fan as well in the summer blowing directly at my case .....

    I'm not worried to much about my temps, i just don't understand how come the temps didn't go down even one degree when I added 2 new fans?

    What's your room temp? You can keep adding fans but you get to a point of diminishing returns. If your room temp is close to your case temp, putting more fans in won't do any good.

    Since case temp is measured in "mid case" but more like on the mobo somewhere, it will probably show hotter than the case temp acctually is. My case temp shows higher than my CPU temp most of the time. Figure that out. :)

    (This is unless you have a separate sensor hanging somewhere...)
