    my computer is sitting at 41 cpu idle and the chassis is at 37, what are the best ways to set up the fans. I have a volcano 7 and 3 case fans. Should i getmore? What is the best way to arrange them for optimal cooling?

    despite your 3 case fans, your case is too hot... where are the case fans located? any that are in back or top should be blowing out... any in front should be blowing in... and any on the side should depend on what your other fans are doing. let us know.

    i have one on the front blowing in and one on the back blowing out. I have a smaller one blowing in as well. I have an msi board and the rumor is that the temp sensor is near the video card. Is this true?

    37C for a chassis temp ain't all that high really, in my opinion. It's only 98.6 F and that temp won't cause any problems, nothing to be too worried about. It could just mean the sensor probe on that motherboard is placed in a not so ideal location.

    37 Celcius is a good temperature to be at. I wouldn't complain since I've seen systems run perfectly stable at 50 Celcius.
