hi guys,

was looking for a little help on air flow around my case, i am running amd 64 3200 its not running hot at no load 39 c max load 62-65 c obviosly this within limits but i want to make it cooler.

i have a stock h/s fan and would like to keep itthat way although i think the prob is airflow through my case. i have 2 exhust fans on onthe top panel of the case and one just below the psu and the psu fan, i cant mount a fan at the front of the case as there is no place to mount it. was thinking about cutting a hole inteh side of my case but would it be benificial?

the case isnt a expensive one but may change in in a month or 2 any recommoendations? about £50 ish

any help on this would be appreciated

thanks aaron

Something like this case http://xoxide.com/sunbeam-sile...torm-black-silver.html would be good. Really, it just needs to have a place for a fan in front and in back to get good airflow.
