My PC has been overheating for months. It originally was inside my desk, but after continued sudden shutdowns I decided to remove it and place it under the desk in a more open environment. I have not has as many shutdown, but motherboard temp still reaches 55C (131F).
The fan specs I found are:
SJ1725HA2 Fan (172x150x51mm)
*BEARING System: Ball
*Rated Voltage: 220/240V
*Freg (Hz): 50/60
*Current (A): 0.28/0.35
*Input Power (W): 44/51
*Speed (rpm): 2800/3100
*AIr Flow (CFM): 190/220
*Static Pressure (INCH-H2O): 0.55/0.72
*Noise Level (dB-A): 53/59
*Housing Material (Aliminum): aliminum alloy
*Impeller Material (Plastic): Construction plastics (94V-0)
*Weight (g): 920
Can I modify my case to use this fan? Or is it too much Airflow?
Currently I have 2 fans on the PSU (1) blowing on the back and (1) blowing down over the CPU. 1 CPU fan and (1) 80mm back case fan. The CPU fan ofter work up to 4500rpm according to ASUS probe software.
the psu fan that you think is blowing air onto the cpu is actually sucking up the hot air around the cpu into the psu and blowing it out the back of the psu and case...
I have no idea if that fan will work, but it looks like it's pretty big from the dimensions you posted, will it fit anywhere in the case...? will it fit into any mounting holes...?
