    Isn't your CPU heatsink fan the wrong way round? It's pulling air from top and pushing it down rather than the other way round.

    Edit: Just read mstenholm's post

    He can just flip the fan the other way round if he didn't have space to place it on the bottom.

    Actually I was asking if it was possible (or not) to turn the heat sink and fan 90 degree. 180 degree would be OK/better if there is an exhurst fan in the top. The photo does not show if that is the case.

    yea its holding the fan onto the heatsink. I know its kinda ghetto. I can turn the fan to blow out the back and i have but the way it is now gives best CPU and NB temps so i am leaving it like that.

    btw the way the heatsink is now is sucking cool air from outside of the case because the top 140mm fan broke and i haven't replaced it yet

    Oops sorry, I misread your post :shadedshu. If I'm not mistaken that's an Antec 300, so he has a top exhaust just above the heatsink as well as the rear one we can see. 90 degree or 180degree should be fine either way since it's very close to both exhausts. Just needs the fan pushing the air through the heatsink in the right direction.

    EDIT: gah always post after the answer :laugh: ok seems p_o_s_pc had a good reason for that :rolleyes:

    your right it is a 300. I didn't think to try the fan that way(i thought i tried things every way i could. I will turn the fan around and keep an eye on temps. But so far blowing down seems to give me the best temps for this setup...

    btw the GPU is just a temp till i get the $$$ for the 5850

    What about adding a fan to the side panel? IIRC it should have mounting holes for a 120, so cold air from the side and pushing out the top might help CPU. Although I have no idea what it might do to your NB temps. Well, just thought I'd give some advice in case you can enjoy cooler temps.

    Sorry to nitpick, but i7 9xx are LGA 1366 and i3/5 and i78xx are LGA 1156. People sure are giving you a lot of shit about your setup POS.

    I noticed the cpu fan configuration as well, but I know pospc is an intelligent guy so I'm sure there was a good reason for it. Crunching rigs don't have to look nice, they just have to perform well.:)

    Oh, I forgot that commenting that something looks like a ghetto mod was a term of endearment- I must be crazy.

    No big on the socket, I just did not want to confuse anyone as Intel is doing a good enough job at that right now anyway.

    Much better. ;)

    I really don't want the change team but I didn't want to spend time in the forum if I was misunderstood (broken english, other side of the pond you know). Water under the brigde, lets keep crunching and folding.

    Crunchers and Folders don´t need to look good, since you get extra "credits" from doing something good with the pc, so looks are secondary.

    Now this one could be doing anything It would still be awesome (though i think every one has seen these one)
