How to get these temps down?
I think my temps are a bit high for my system. The room temp is 70F. Here is my setup:
1GB HyperX PC4000
3 7200rpm hard drives
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
Matrox G200 PCI
ATI TV wonder
Antec NeoPower 480w
2 80mm exhaust fans
1 120mm front intake
RBX block on P4
Maze4 on 9800 Pro
Aquaxtreme 12v pump
2 120x38mm YS Tech fans running low speed, blowing down onto the heatsink. The fans push air down through the top of the case and through the heatercore.
Here are the temps:
Here's an inside pic:
(I eliminated the Elbow)
Here's a pic where you can see the shroud up top:
The northbridge has the stock Abit cooler on it, and my motherboard's mosfets have aluminum ram sinks.
I think my temps should be much cooler, and my system should be able to run with even less fans. Are there any ideas as to what could be causing this? The system is dust free, and I just reapplied AS5 to the CPU, and it yields the same temperatures.

how is the system dust free with that opening for a fan on the side? or is it just closed up and i cannot tell. btw, where did you get that background that spans across your monitor like that?what? like a blue spider? get it off!

Your fans on the radiator are are drawing air out, right? If that is true, then you are drawing warm air from the case through the radiator. If you could remount the radiator so that it draws fresh air from outside the case you could probably drop 3-5 degrees centigrade from your processor temperature.What did a tornado sound like before freight trains were invented?

You sure thats all your trying to show us in that pic ?
Is that the shroud way off over there in the background next to all the peeeerty lcd screens and laptop?
Haha just kidding, I am sure he just wants someone to tell him nice setup.
So here it is
