41 or 32c? thats a big diff, be more specific.if its 32 i wouldnt be worried, but i run 41 on load, so thats not right. i wouldnt take off the side of your case, it doesnt cool your computer all it does is prevent your fans from doing there job. there is no air circulation passing through the spots that need it, so they stay hot. you should just put the side back on, and see what happens. if that still doesnt help, look for a bigger fan(s)?

hax. lol nah, i have a well insulated room, and well I DONT TAKE THE SIDE OF MY COMPUTER OFF! i have 5 80mm fans, and 1 120. but i thought that was normal. what temps are usual for my specs?

neway, punjabi check to see if anything is getting in the way of your fans, if not then your probly gonna need a new fan. there not very expensive, so i would suggest getin 1 or 2 120 mm's...thats pretty much all i can think of. unless ricky has any other ideas thats what ur gonna have to do. or if your willing to spend the big bux, watercooling!

p.s. its probly low, cuz i havnt over clocked it yet...my computers still a baby, and i dont wanna throw it in the deep end of the pool just yet

^^ srry im alittle slow, thats my system temp...i dont really know what my cpu temp runs because all my case shows me is Lo C when i remove the little plastic things covering the sensors. i have one left on, and i leave that in the middle of my case...that runs about 41 on load, so im sure my cpu gets hotter than that.

p.s. if your familiar with MGE Quantum case, does anybody know how to get the temp to read rather than the Lo C?
