Well, the mobo has a heatsink on the nforce2 main chip, but no fan on it.
I have 4 fans : 2 X 120 mm for intake and outtake, 1 for cpu (stock) and 1 for video card (stock).
The case is pretty loaded with cables. Will try to improve airflow by hiding cables better.
It's also possible that I didn't use the artic silver 5 correctly. Maybe I put too much paste on the cpu.
One thing is sure, adding a 120mm fan for air intake and adding some artic silver 5 didn't help at all!! I get the same temps as before.
