    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong part,

    My new machine is athlon 1600+ it has a pretty good heatsink and fan, there is also a case fan which is a bit to load for my liking,

    I need to know if it is really needed, or will it be ok without it,

    the graphics card has its own fan, and im not a game player so does it need that many fans.

    I have one Fan blowing in and one fan blowing out , My machine is only 1Ghz not overclocked .....

    The cooler the better i reckon ........ when the machine gets hot it becomes unstable and puts stress on all the components

    so yes , i would leave the fan , and probably add another ....:rolleyes:

    You don't "need" it, but it would make your cpu and motherboard cooler. As long as you don't experience any sudden crashes I would say you are fine!!:)

    *Tired of overcooling peeps:D
