Windows 7: Best temperature ranges?

Mmmm....in the picture with the two fans, the CPU fan and the one you turned around are blowing air against each other, and now you don't have a fan exhausting air from inside the case to outside the case. Are your temperatures higher now?

In the 3rd picture I dont think you can put a fan there, isnce you need to turn the PC back up onto its side and the fan wont be able to draw enough air between the table and the bottom of the case? Do you only have 2 fans on this computer - one on the CPU, and then the one near it as per your photo?

A typical PC case has a minimum of 3 fans :
1 on the CPU
1 drawing fresh air into the PC
1 exhausting warm air from inside the PC, to the outside

Please take another picture of the FRONT of the PC, when it is standing upright.

Yes I realized that those two would blow air against each other so I turned the fan around. I placed another one down there and it's like you say, temperature went down like 2 degrees. I lifted it up and it went further doen, but just a little.

I'm afraid there is no more room for extra coolers.


I'll take the other picture.

Yes. You can see it in this new picture.The sticker is facing out now.


Also, as you can see there is no space between the wooden table and the fan that wsa place at the bottom.

In addition to a little cable/wire management, you might want to make sure your CPU's cooler is properly fitted to the board. Those stock coolers with those plastic clips can be funky at times and will come loose if not properly seated to the motherboard.

My two cents.

Thank you. Yes, I don't like the way the technician placed those wires, perhaps it is influencing temperature a little.

OK. See the area circled in red? This is the grill through which fresh air should be drawn....can you check to see thats its open/not blocked by anything? Can you feel air being drawn into the case from this grill?

Also, did you check to see that the CPU cooler is properly fixed to the motherboard with those black clips that sygnus21 mentioned?

That's not a grill, there are no openings there. However, right under the area you marked is an opening. In this picture you can see that the opening is below what seems to be a grill (but is not).

The hardrive, along with some wires, can be seen in the picture.


I tried to pull out the cooler to see if it was not properly fixed and I ended up lifting up the entire computer, so it's properly seated.


Picture 7 shows that the area you marked is not a grill.


Picture 8 shows the position of the extra fan I added.
