  1. Hi guys, I'm new here and I run in to trouble...I got my self a geforce 4 ti4200 128.
    And yeah it heats a lot! so i got a different fan for it, now the cpu is fine, but the ram is the one that is heating...What do I do?
    I cant mesure the temperature because i dont have the monitor, so how do I go about it? the case is pritty hot...Im worried that my ram will fry out soon if I keep it same way.
    my specs are :
    cpu@ 220
    ram@ 405

    From my experience, the air ventilation inside your casing is an important factor to the temperature inside your PC. In my case, my Athlon XP dropped from 59°C to 47°C on idle (I have a small casing). You would probably wanna check whether the ventilation within your casing is efficient.

    Do you have small casing fans hanging around? Make sure there are blowing the right way, if not they will interfere with the internal airflow.
