Default Trying to get better temperatures.

Hello, I'm still trying to figure things out with my temperatures. After playing a few video games my processor zone temp gets into the 60'sC and one of the system temps has gotten up to 49C. The ambient temperature sensor that gets to 49C sits right inbetween the processor and (according to the manual, I have no idea) the processor voltage regulator area. The manual says that the voltage reg area can get up to 85C.

Could a good processor fan cool off both of these areas? I'm just using the one that came with the processor (Pentium 4 3.0E prescott).

Only other thing I can think of is changing the rear exhaust fan. The one that came with my case is a 80mm that moves 20cfm.

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

u don really need to worry bout the voltage area but an 80 that move 20cfm isnt very powerful i would get a stronger 1 watch the noise though cuz some move as much as 100cfm but can deafen u lol
