Default How much difference...

...does a case make in cpu temps? jesus, I wasn't expecting this much of a drop!

Got the CM Stacker 830 in mail yesterday, switched stuff over and my idle temps dropped a good 10 deg celcius. (34ish to 24ish -- using TAT and speedfan temp readings). my old case was an antec 900. i have 7 fans running atm (2 front intake, 3 side intake, 1 top exhaust, 1 back exhaust) cus i stripped the antec of its fans :P.

i'm running 300fsbx10 e2180 on stock heatsink at stock vcore

Those are really good drops for a stock HS. I've got an 830 SE sitting next to me, waiting for me to swap my internals over. This makes me pretty anxious to get started, but I need a new HS and fans first before I go through this trouble.

I thought the stacker was originally designed to fit up to 3 motherboards.

the big drop was only in idle temps HD dropped about 12 deg celc, graphics card about 9 deg celc, cpu about 10 deg celc IDLE... in orthos though, my load temp only dropped about 5 deg celc from the antec


i just realised i have the top fan installed backwards, its actually intake atm, need to fix
