Turning the fan on the left to point inward will help
Actually, turning it to inward increased the temperature by about 8 degrees (Celsius) so I switched it back around.
but, those fans you are using just flat out dont move much air when the case is closed. I've tried using those to make a quiet case and they lasted about 20 minutes before I took them out. My temps skyrocketed since they just dont move much air.
True, but that's why I used two and did a little bit of research to get some with more than decent stats. Also, good 70x70 fans are hard to come by and 80x80 won't fit into a slimbox. Not into mine, at least.
One other thing you can do it cut the plastic grill behind the rear fan, that way you get the most air flow possible with nothing in the way and make sure the fans are running at max speed. Give those two things a shot and see what happens. And clean up those cables for better flow, it looks like you've got alot going on in there lol.
I removed the plastic grill, don't know if it made a whole lot of difference but cleaning up the cables inside the case definitely did. Under average CPU strain my temps now stay under 60 C, if I increase the workload they go to 63 C at a max. Not amazing, but good enough, I guess.This post has been edited by InspectorMustache: Oct 15 2011, 11:18 PM
