Stick as many fans as you can :)

Thermaltake makes good fans.

I have a lot of fans in my system. 3 intake fans on the front, one on the side, 4 outtake, one hard drive cooler, one video card cooler, one fan that i sticky taped inside of the case, and the Cpu cooler.

lol.

It runs system temp at : 27C in the winter time
and CPU, amd XP1900 at :30C in winter time, 35C under load :)

oh I forgot.. he can't hear me coz he's deaf from all the noise from the 50 billion fans he has :cool:

lmao... sorry could not resist..

personally I have 4 case fans.. 2 in... 2 out...

cpu never above 40C unless I oc it to 1.75/1.8ghz... and this is in florida mind

fall temps hover closer to 35-37 on load...

case temps normally in the 30-33 deg range... in fall its been in the upper 20's

Don't use a case--works great for me! :D

Seriously, here are some screen shots





I do intend to get a case as soon as I get a new mobo. Personally, I have though about buying one of those small refrigerators and putting everything in there. :)

Am I on drugs? Maybe....:rolleyes:

(PS-If you do the fridge thing, be sure you put a dehumidifier inside of there as well to lower the dew point which will prevent condensation from killing you system.)

Good question. So far, this has not been a problem--going on 3 months now. I don't live out in the country (like I used to) or this would be a problem because of all the dirt roads. Either there is not a lot of dust in this region or I am lucky. :happy:
