Default Heat

i'm building my own PC and decided to go cheap for hing end air cooled rather than water. besides the cpu and video card, are there any other major sources of heat that i need to take care of?? i'm using the 6800GS and i think the onboard heatsink is good enough (i do plan to OC it a little more than it already is), and for the CPU i'm getting this


any good suggestions for better cpu cooling or extra things i can do for the video card?

So it Goes.

Just make sure you have fans installed where ever your case have vents for it. You should be just fine with cooling.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

Just bought that CPU cooler, should be here tomorrow sometime. Once I have it installed I'll let you know how good it is.

You are better off with a Scythe Ninja with a low CFM 120mm Fan.
