  1. my case temp is 90f to 105f and i'm wondering why/or is that ok.my cpu temp is 112f to 115f, never really change's. i have a salman awesome blossom heatsink and fan, very good. i have 1 80mm fan as a intake, 1 120mm on the window directly across from my cpu (exhaust). 1 pci exhaust right under my gainward 5900xt pulling all of the heat right my gpu. and 1 zues system exhaust 5.25 bay, very good.

    Both of your temperatures are completely optimal and normal. You have absolutely nothing to worry about.

    Now, me on the other hand, I'm running at 45C/113F with a Thermalright SP94. That is cause for worry. But all of my case fans are turned down low (I can sleep in the same room as my machine without any trouble), it's summer, and I'm running SETI. It's not the temperature in terms of the CPU that I was worried about, but rather in terms of the heatsink...it was $50...I expected better than 45C :D
