I meant like a 12" fan that I point directly at the components. It blows much more air directly onto the heatsyncs than a little 8cm fan, and trust me, my temps go down a lot.

Leaving your case sides open :-
1. More dust.
2. Exposing your componants to the elements.
3. Don't get me started on what I have seen a cat do to a computer.
4. Don't get me started on what I have seen house mates do to a computer.


Over all, it sound like you need some case modding to improve the air flow in your case.

If you don't overclock and atleast have a stock cpu fan, I bet it doesn't make that much of a difference

I'd like to repeat this one more time while gritting my teeth.
AMD2800 you need to seriously change your attitude in this forum.
This isn't the first time i've seen an arrogant remark towards someone whom asked a question. Regardless of how "stupid" you might think the question is.

Ontopic: I let my bearded dragon run rampant in my room when I'm here, although most of the time he sits on my shoulder or head for warmth, he does like to run around on the floor and jump on shelves. I don't want there to be a GEFORCE 6600GT vs. LIZARD matchup anytime soon =-/

I have 2 cats, but they never go up onto the computer desk. they're always on the couch or something.
anyway, most of the time I do have the side open, so I can keep the temps down. my CPU and case temps are not great.
