Hey guys has any one got any advise on what i can do to get my CPU running cooler ? My setup is as follows XP 2700 + .. 400 wat PSU sigle fan, i have 1 fan at rear drawing air out, 1 at side drawing air out, 1 at front drawing air in. i have just installed a Aero 7 + heatsink & Fan thinking this would cool it down a bit but the Temperature has only gone down about 3 or 4 degrees. i must be doing something rong lol any help would be great please :) Oh and my Temp is on idle at about 47`C and on load about 60`C

The Aero7+ is a nice little cooler but a bit on the short side in CFM displacement around 20 i think full speed . I'm shure with a better fan you'd have lower temps cause the cooler is good copper and all. the blower looks good but i never liked the cfm's of these chipmunk cages :(

OK em the rear fan runs at about 2600 RPM on average but not sure on the side fan or the 1 at front as i cant see the RPM on these :( ... but ill try turning the side fan arround to see if it makes a difference. and thx for your help guys much appreciated :)

Your options are few,

 

1) replace the fan unit with say a vantec 80x38mm its 81.5 CFM (problem is it won't flow air evenly over your h/s like the Aero 7+ will & it's noisy!)

 

2) use the Vantec with a TT duct style mod to recitfy air flow over h/s

 

3) keep it all and try out this little number I found @ www.svcompucycle.com

 

I was actually wondering how this kit would go as a directed intake w/ boost (additional high cfm fan) <_<

hey guys, since you're on the topic. i have 2 fans in front for intake and have a dualfan psu and another fan in the back for exhaust plus a side fan on exhaust. Do you think i would be better switching the side fan to intake? Right now i'm like 40C on load. I have an aluminum HS, not copper.

 

EDIT: the 40C is by asusprobe...i haven't installed MBM yet. i heard asusprobe lies?

Well ClayMeow, different people will tell you different opinions, personally I believe that air flowing from the front of the case to the back, across the HsF impairs the fans suction (a bit like a stream trying to enter a raging river etc.)

 

Creating intake (high cfm/120mm?) on your side panel, will assist the HsF combo, then personally I'd make the remaining fans exhaust oriented, but this is just my theory, experiment on what is best for your system needs.

 

I wouldn't be suprised if Asusprobe, was inaccurate I downloaded an updated health/utility for my Aopen from their site it's out by more that 10c.

 

Get MBM......

 

 

Good luck & post your findings. ;)
