    Hey Guys,

    My PC is in the hottest part of the house, and today it is 86F outside so that means the temp is probably 80-86F where the computer is.

    My setup is:

    Chieftec Dragon w/side fan
    Radeon 9800Pro
    Athlon 2500+ (Soon to be 3000+)
    Only listed the main heat generating things.

    I have two fans blowing air in the bottom front and two blowing air out top back, all four are Antec rated at 34 CFM. My heatsink is a Thermalright SI-97 w/Sunon 92MM fan.

    My idle temps today are 29C case/44C CPU. What can I do to lower the temp?

    Those temps are good for those ambient temps.

    Irrelevant really.
    What are your temps under load?
    Crank on Prime95 and run a few loops of Aquamark 03 and see how high you go.
