I have 2 extra very fast fans (I dont know exact RPM though) which I can put anywhere inside my cabinet. The problem is that I cant figure out where to put them exactly so that it will cool my processor properly.
Here is my config and temp on which it currently remains when idle (I opened my cabinet to keep it cool and clean it regularly)-
Intel core 2 duo E6600 (2.4GHz, 4MB L2 cache, 1066FSB)- 45-47C (already contains a heat sink and fan)
Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS 640MB graphics card- 63C at 50% fan speed of its own fan and 54C if 100% fan speed.
Other than its own fan, this graphics card has a big aluminum heat sink too, so I am not worried about its temp.
2GB 667MHz RAM.
320GB 7200RPM HDD + 250GB 7200RPM HDD- both 40C
Sound blaster 5.1 Live sound card (this is not so hot)
500Watt PSU- contains a fan.
intel 946GZ Mobo.
so there are 3 fans working and one heat sink. Now I have two extra fans and my whole box is open so I can put them anywhere.
Note:- The mobo is vertical on cabinet wall (as usual) and GPU is perpendicularly attached to it (as usual). The GPU is very big and fan is very lite so I can put it on GPU too. That makes fan exactly in front of mobo. Now I dont know whether to put fan in front of heat sink of mobo or directly in front of fan which is attached on processor, or anywhere else. Please tell me which position will cool processor more (or any other position in cabinet).
One fan I can put right below the fan of GPU so that it blows the hot air out, which comes out of Graphics card. Is it all right or I should try some other positions.
I have explained all positions of my hardwares. please help me to use those two fans efficiently.
