Default I could fry eggs on my pc!

hi,

I bought a new hard drive SATA western digital 120GB, and it was overheating to about 80C so Iv bought a new PSU an antec truepower 550W, 2 case fans, and 2 hdd fans. So I put all of these in my pc and now the hdd is at 110C!! and my other parts have also gone up in temp. Is itbecause of my case now having more wires due to the new PSU. I have a small case I was hoping someone could recommend a good case for air flow and wire control, as at the moment all I can do it let the wires hang around no space to put them.

any help would be most appriciated thankyou

how much are you willing to spend?

I got my case here:
http://www.geeks.com/products.asp?cat=CAS

and I would also recomend www.newegg.com

but I haven't tried each one so I couldn't be specific...
I'm sure if you get a mid-tower (assumeing you have a micro-atx) you should get better airflo

Dude, you need a full tower for all of that.

I recommend Antec and ThermalTake. Here's a couple of links (they're to NewEgg, but you know where you can order from on your side of the pond).

Look into getting round cables for your HDDs, opticals, and floppy drive. They're not very expensive, and they allow the air to flow.

Are you by any chance using Speedfan?

I don't think you realize just how hot 110C would feel...if your hard drive was anywhere near that temperature you couldn't put your hand anywhere near the drive without getting burned...and your drive would start corrupting this way and that

For reference boiling point is 100C

Im using everest and hdd thermometer they both went nuts the drive was hot but not skin burning I turned off my pc as soon as I got the temp readings. Id still rather play it safe and buy a new ventilated case and better air flow.
