    if stuff is overheating then you need better cooling also use it as little as possible until you get better cooling

    you don't need water cooling, you just need to fix your current setup...

    air needs to flow through the case from one end to the other. your current fan setup does not allow for that to happen... according to your first post:
    ...you have 6 exhaust fans and only 1 intake fan. and the location of your intake fan is on the back of your case, where the hot PSU / CPU air is discharged.

    try changing the fans in the front of your case to intake fans, and possibly the side fan as an intake as well. then make all fans on the back of your case exhaust.

    also, make sure your heatsinks are free of excessive dust buildup (as this can also cause overheating even with good airflow). last but not least make sure all your power wires and data cables are tied up neatly. once you do that, your temps should be alot better than before.

    :wave:
