Trivium Nate, that wouldnt happen to be a eMachines T5226, would it?
I have the exact same computer, and I recently put a fan in just about the same area... I can't say I noticed much of an improvement. There always is taking the part that says its a T5226 off.
To open up this area:
I'm sure you know how to do this. Also note that 63 C is average for that CPU.. im sure you know that also, but im just reminding you because first time I saw that i was freaked out.. i get 55C in the Bios (about 70% load?? i dont remember)
sorry for the crappy images :/ webcam is having troubles....
EDIT --- I also just noticed something... its not the best idea to have BOTH Legacy and SATA power connectors connected.... I read somewhere it could fry the HD after extended periods of usage...
