lol damnnn... well how can i lower the temp? theres no more places for fans. the back if the case is the PS fan and one for the radiator of the "silent liquid cooling" which isnt cooling and isnt silent. and the side with a place for a fan already has one. could i put them in the 2 remaining cd drive bays? maybe if they didnt make that stupid door thing that closes. lol. any suggestions?
