Ok, so i bought the antec 1080 plus amg server case back in 2003 for my intel socket 478 case, and when i upgraded to 939 i kept this as one of my cases, the issue is that its seems to keep heat inside the case no matter what the ambient temp is. i have the front door of the case taken off, all the 5.25 inch bay cover taken off (3 out 4) and both the side doors are off, the case cant be wired much better than it is realistically speaking, everything is clean (no dust i made sure) i've changed the thermal paste too. but my temps idle at CPU:42 MOBO: 38 GPU: 54 AMBIENT: 40
here are some pics to drive my madness across to you guys:
i have the stock heatsink and fan, and i really do not want to use something that would end up voiding my warranty in case something happens to the cpu.
HEre are my specs:
amd 4800+ 2.4 (stock)
550 watt antec true power 2.0 psu
6800gt single slot card (evga 512 mb)
2 gb ocz 2-3-2-5 ddr 400 ram (stock speeds)
raptor 74 gigs
samsung shitty ass drive
and here is where i think things are going wrong:
i only have 3 fans running on the system
2 80mm stock fans in the back, they cant even blow away a thin light reciept paper when i put it right up to the fans.
1 80mm tri speed antec fan in the bottom front as an intake.
My goal is to bring these temps down by about 5-10 degrees
i was thinking of buying these fans let me know if you have used or know anything about them:
please comment, thanks.
