    i ran AIDA32 and found this

    Code:
    Temperatures:
      	CPU  	44 C (111 F)
      	Aux  	39 C (102 F)
    a few questions...
    what is Aux? and If i got a few more case fans (thinking about getting 3) would this use alot of voltage/wattage and would it cool my pc down a few Cs?

    1. how many watt's is your PSU?
    2. how many case fans do you have now?
    3. i assume you are using stock heatsink/thermal paste?
    if so you could apply some arctic silver 5 thermal paste as opposed to the stock thermal pad, this would drop it a few degrees
    you probably also want to get a more sufficient airflow running through your case, so yes more fans would help

     *	CPU *	44 C (111 F)

    Normal fans use 3 or 4 Watts each, and from your remark I would guess your PSU is the only gadget expelling air from your case. When so, yes, case fans would lower your case temps.

    Those temps you name are a bit odd though.
    44 C for your CPU could be idle, or full load.
    39 C is unlikely to be your case temp. It is too high for that.

    You really should give more info before anything sensible can be said.

    Please state:
    What CPU?
    CPU cooler?
    can you take temp. readings ? (like with one of those cheap 'inside/outside' digital thingies.)
    What board?
    How many disks?
    what graphics card?

    try using motherboards monitor 5 it should label the temps properly...should.

    that 39 degrees im guessing is either hard drive temp or video card temp, but i doubt it, its probably hard drive..

    i'm not touching motherboard monitor last time i installed it I had my heatsink fan on full for about 2 hours and couldn't turn it down!

    I stuck my hand behind my pc (dunno why) but i couldn't fell any air being blown out from my psu which i know is bad news

    hmm well that sucks then...i dont know any other programs that will label teh temperatures, but u could try running speedfan to get the temperatures and just post us every temperature it has...there will probably be 4 or 5, and if it happens to change teh speed of ur fan then u can change it back because its speedfan...

    oh and yeah u should be feeling air coming out of the psu, atleast SOME air. if i feel mine I just feel a really tiny amount of air, but there is some coming out, its running at slow speeds and is really quiet .
