What's the point?? The temps are more than likely fine as they are. You probably can't overclock your CPU with a Gateway motherboard.

i've had it about a year or more, and the room its in gets about 90 degrees plus in the summer and its getting hot where i am, plus i dont trust that heat sink on my cpu because its just a heat sink. i want to put the one with a fan and heatsink to keep it cool. and the lights on the fan looks nice to lol.

another question what is better uv or led?

It's not backwards, it's just a BTX. My Dell is BTX and it actually runs really cool, when I lived in Phoenix my room would get above 80 degrees on some days during the heat of the day, this is the first computer I've had that didn't slow down during those conditions. My old HP, and emachines computers would slow down really slow during those times, and I would have to shut them off until things cooled down.

I think that a major problem with BTX cases is that you couldn't fit a video card that has a large fan taking up to spots.

Yep, I had that problem with my Gateway.

Depends on the type of CPU that you have.

C2D's should be at max 60 degrees.

EDIT: Here be the link to CPU temps: http://computerforums.org/showthread...r+temperatures
