Okay what case do you have?

If its 36 outside, whats your room temperature? If youre hot inside your room, then you might not beable to cool your cpu much more than you have.

You might want to look into a premade water setup[ like the Corsair H70/80 or Koolit 120. You get the eat out of the case keeping things overall cooler.

I have this case - ATX GIGABYTE (GZ-AA2CB-SNB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233031
My room temperature doesn't go above 30įC for sure, but I'd say it's not more than 26įC.

Is water cooling really that good? The H80 costs around 100€ here, and I'm not exactly a rich person.

EDIT: Newegg doesn't show the link to my case. Just google it and you'll see which one it is.
EDIT #2: Fixed the link. My bad.

Probably wires clogging it up as well. That case is not good for wire management.

No these w/c setups arent thAT great, but when youre in a hot area, the heat won't get trapped in your case causing overheating.

UPDATE: I tried cleaning as much dust as I could by using my mouth and lungs to the fullest and with a few cotton swabs.

Right now, I'm running BitCoin that uses CPU power, and the temperature of my cores has peaked at 95įC and is steady. It did not reach 100įC for the computer to shut down, as it would previously.

I will definitely go and grab a can of air asap and report the results.

The systems way to high for 24/7 use.

GET A HOUSE FAN< AND BLOW IT into your open case. If the temps significantly drop, you have a air movemement cooling issue.

You need to stop running BitCoin until you have this problem eliminated, or be prepared to buy replacement parts.

HiYa, In a pinch you can use a soda straw and your lungs to blow it out. Make sure it is a new straw. Hope this helps. SeeYa

@patonb: I tried that, and the temp only dropped by maybe 1 or 2įC after a minute or two. When I go to sleep, my computer goes to sleep/power saving mode.

@Slaymate: I only used Bitcoin as a test for loading the CPU.

The temperature of my cores has been at around 40įC (idle) for the past few hours. I think the heat outside is having a major impact on these temperatures.

Anywho, I am planning on upgrading my computer as soon as I get some money.
Could anyone share their opinion on the following parts:

Computer case: NZXT Phantom
PSU: Corsair 850W TX2
CPU Fan: Corsair A70
Graphics card: Asus ENGTX560 Ti DCII TOP
