Alright, well I know these types of fans exist, but I can't seem to find them at all on newegg! Anyone with any help? The comp is running a little hot after 1 80 in the front, 1 120 in the back, one pci slot fan, and 1 60 (not sure, didnt measure, i just know it fits) in the side. I already did some hardcore cable management, but it didn't help all that much.

I get a 44-50 c reading for the c2d on idle, and a 48 c reading for the gfx card on idle. On load, it gets up to around 55 or so for both. Not quite sure about the temps though, I don't get accurate readings with everest, none at all from sandra, these are from pc wizard 2007.



So either, ideas for more heat managment or where to find these fans?



:thumbsup:

I too have contemplated adding another intake fan to replace my now useless a: drive. :thumbsup:

So far, these are the only two I have been able to find that seem to fit the bill.

Evercool 1

Evercool 2

Also, if you have a spare 5.25" bay, then you may want to look into something like this.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick response! Those (the 5.25 especially) seem like they would fit the bill quite well. But I'm not sure which would be better, another intake or those fans to circulate the air around the case. I only have one 80 as intake, in front of the hard drives, so maybe I'd be better off getting an intake. Dunno.

I don't really care about sound at all, I use a headset to game, so I don't hear anything else anyway.


Edit:
mmm this looks nice. A 120 for the front 5.25 bays, which i have 4 available of. Just need to find out if it'll work with my drive rails in the centurion 5.

You really want to balance the intake and exhaust cfm. If you're sucking in more than you can exhaust you're just spinning your wheels
