Default fans help

OK, I added two fans from two other PCs so I could balance the CPU more better... and the CPU is at 49-53C idle!

That is a big impact

sometimes adding more fans raises temps. It is all about experimenting. Sometimes it works better when there is negative pressure and others its better with positive pressure.

There comes to a point also where you can add as many fans as you like and the temp still remain constant. Just make sure all the fans are blowing the right way.

Dont forget to check the CFM rate of the fans. The larger the number the better.

but the more CFM the louder. And Dev, watercooling can only take you a certain distance. Remember that the water can NOT go lower than ambient temps. Thats the limit of water cooling. But its a different story when its snowing outside and you stick your radiator out the window.
