I think what I am going to do is Strap a fan onto the cpu to blow towards the rear exhaust and then if i still am not satisfied throw a fan in the bays..

ORB - Compare

^^ Highest score for me yet and not at my highest gpu settings and not highest cpu settings...

Never went over 45C's yay for accelero!

Grr, should i strap a 140MM fan with LED's on my tuniq, a 120mm without led's or a 120mm with led's...

Kind of want to do the 140mm since it's huge
