Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Ok, so I just bought a new chassi. This was a monster chassi, with 3 built in 120mm fans and a massive 200mm fan on top. In addition to these 4 fans, I added another 92mm fan and yet another 120mm fan. Also, I've removed the stock cooler on my 8800GT and replaced it with a custom thermaltek cooler
Now, before all this, in my old case, where I only had one fan, I got idle temperatures of 65 degrees celcius. Now, with an additional 5 monster fans and an expensive custom cooler, I just went down 5 degrees. 5 degrees! THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE
My 8800GT still gets grilling hot when I play games, easily reaching temperatures of 80+ degrees celcius, despite all my airflow.
I've spent lots of money trying to get my computer chilled, but everything seems to have failed. Please, can someone help me figure out what I did wrong here?
