I have a ATC aluminum 10 bay case, with a 3200+, which has been running, what i think, is too warm. The case came standard with two fans in the front to draw air in, but i have three hd with hd fans on them that inhibit most of the air flow. My ps has two fan for exhaust from the top of the case. I also have one rear fan and one fan on the top of the case, not very powerful.
I have lately noticed my cpu temps are 45c when its 60f out side, and of course when its humid in the 70s out side I hit mid 50's c with idle. This is all with the stock hsf. I have seen it hit high 50's c in BF 1942 DC, with occasional lock ups.
I obviously need a new hsf, I am considering the Thermaltake Silent Boost, with a duct mod for the cpu. I am thinking of putting this fan monitor in my case.
To control four case fans. I plan on cutting some holes in my side panel, one above the apg, the other above the cpu for intake fans, and hook them up to the monitor to control them.
I am doing all of this in mind of keeping my system as cool as it can be with also being quiet.
Is there anything that i am over looking? Fans or hsf that you recommend for my case?
