Minor dust on the Graphics card fan that I cleaned off easily. (fan on that facing down, as that's the only way you can put the card in). CPU fan located in the rear and running normal as there really is only one way to put it on... (using the fan that came with the processor)
Took out the extra harddrive and the temp on the card seems to be staying at an idle temp of 40 C..... only rising to 43 when I start up a game. (Speedfan is showing my CPU jumping to 256C and staying there, but I think that's a false reading, my computer would have shut down).
I honestly did not think a single component would pull my heat up 18 degrees Celcius...am I missing something here or is that normal? If so, I'd hate to see what I'd be running at with the drive bays maxed (3 cages that fit 3 drives each)
Scratch that, the temp is back up after running for about 20 minutes. Not as bad as before, but 50 idle is makin' me a little wierded out. Temp wasn't this high until I installed the new fans.... The side fan is supposed to blow out yes? Not in?
Wow a 256C jump eh?
Honestly I think the side fan should be in, to fed the gpu and psu fresh air.
What you have right now is half the front fans air being sucked out by it, starving the psu and gpu abit.
Knowing now your side sucks, that be your most likely culprit.
Haha was typing as you did
