Ok I have 2 Athlon xp 2900 based computers. 1 runs great. As for the other.... First I was a little skimpy on the jel, so I added about a 2 mm strip of jel down the center of the dye. Now my computer is not shutting down. I have a different case, and yes it was $28 instead of $40 for the other one, but it had some features that were better for its location like side usb ports blah blah blah. So I got this thing down to 50C when the processor is idle at 5% and below. When I run games it climbs towards 75C before I stop it. I think the case sucks and I also got only 25cfm fans. It will also be in a desk inclosure with the door locked cracket 2 inches [I have kids!]. I have 2 weak fans in the front and one weak fan in the back. Also there is not much breathing room in the back of the cubby. I punched out the backing, but it is still only 1-2 inches form the wall in the back. Tight squeeze. I am thinking of putting a regular fan in the cubby to blow hot air the computer makes out the back. Just a regular fan you would plug into an AC outlet. Is that an idea as long as I don't face the regular fan into any computer vents. Just gonna put it on top of the computer to circulate outside air outta the desk enclosure. I plan on getting a pci fan to suck air in and 2 more powerful case fans. Where should I put the louder fans for best flow? Will this do the job? Our should I throwout the case and rip everything out and start over..... Not! Thx for any info.
