    latest stats:

    p4 2.4c upped to 3.01ghz
    Dominator fx5600plus overclocked to 367 mhz cpu clock
    generic floppy
    Generic DVDRW 4xMAX
    150watt p4supply
    ddr400 corsair RAM dual-channel 512mb
    intel 875 canterwood chipset
    160gb hdd w/8mb cache Western Digital

    CPU heat stats on full load: 99F (38C, 311K)
    CPU heat stats on idle load: 83F (28C, 301K)
    5700u heat stats on full load (I mean 5900u load): 196F (91C, 364K)
    5700u heat stats standard full load: 187F (86C, 359K)
    5700u heat stats on idle load: 106F (41C, 314K)

    number of case fans/other fans/main fans: 6
    number of silencers: 3
    total weight of silencing foam used: 4lb

    other than the fact that i swapped the 5600 with the 5700u, everything seems normal...


    if you consider a blazing inferno hot enough to bake a cake a normal affair...


    anyone have any damn idea how to reduce the amount of heat my 5700u deals out? i mean, u touch the side of my case, itll feel like the window of an oven, literally!

    i mean, just to see how hot it was in there, i left one of those easy bake cake mixes in the PC (fully isolated from the PC parts of course), and about 25 minutes later, it was DONE!!! its THAT FUCKING HOT! its a damn nuclear reactor!

    and no, my 5700u is NOT overclocked.

    oh ok im sorry, how about trying a larger case, one of the cooling cases so that theres more room for airflow or moving whatever you can that is hot closer to the top of the case so the heat doesn't pull up

    well they have cooler cases and stuff but i think there rather expensive, i think your best bet is to hit up google and type something like cooling cases or cooling computer cases

    yes, this is a small form factor case, so the psu will be small

    5700u = geforce fx 5700 ultra

    btw thanx for all the replies
    on a side note: i called zalman and found out that the 5700 ultra needs to have the bulky fan attachment with the heatsink, which rules it out, as my sff case does not have enough room
