I'm running on a modified Emachines T6520. I've added a 6600GT and a Antec SmartPower2.0 400W PSU. Now here's my concern:
After startup, this baby is silent as an assassin. No fan noise whatsoever. Now, say I play BF2 for about an hour. Of course, the fans kick in because this game is using my CPU, GPU, RAM, etc. to a high degree, so the system needs to be cooled to account for the increased workload. Fine. But after I close the game, the fans are still going at full clip even if I leave the system unattended for an hour. Why is it doing this, and what can I do to put a stop to it? I just ran my task manager and it says that my CPU usuage is 0% so there's nothing running the background that's hogging my resources. How long does your system take to cool off after a bout of gaming?
