any suggestions?
the voltage circuit cooler could prob come off, but it was a little warm there
when i went over it with an ir temp probe, same with the back of 3870, (70c)
theres a zalman northbridge cooler squeezed below the graphics card an it gets a little warm without the pci cooler, takes heat away from the 3870 vrm's too,
most of the fans are temp controlled or on 5v so only gets louder when gaming,
