Well I just finished putting together my first computer, and it is running extremley well. I have a 1.2ghz (266 fsb) on an epox 8k7a. I would like to play around with overclocking it a little, maybe try and get it around 1.33 to 1.4 range, but I am a little worried about the cpu temps. I have MBM up and running and under a full load the cpu stays pretty constant at 43C. The HSF that I am using is a Vantek, I think it is the 6030D, but the computer is at home and I am not so I can't look.
Anyways, the case temp hangs around 30-33C, and the case is an In-win Q500N with 3 80mm case fans running. I also have a Geforce3 in there. Needless to say the case is noisy. Should I worry about heat if I try and run up the speed a little?

sounds to me you need to get some better fans and more fans for your case

case temp is a little high

also get a better heatsink SK6 or a FOP will work great

one other thing make sure you have a 400 watt or bigger power supply because heat can be caused from starvation

make sure the power supply fan is blowing OUT the case

Ok, I double checked my HSF, it is the Vantec FCE 62540D. Also the case fans are Sunon 35cfm fans. To get this colling better how should the fans be arrayed? I have the fan on the front of my case blowing in and the two on the back of the case as well as the power supply fan blowing out. Would it be better to have the two lower ones blowing in and the two upp ones blowing out?

Case fans should be adequate.. the ones in the back of your case should be used to shoot hot air out of your case and atleast have 1 intake fan either in front of your case or drill a blow hole and install on on the side of the case.. I'd definatly get either a thermal right Sk6 or a Swiftech 462b w/ the 80mx80m delta ( dont pay for this cooler with the crappy fan!!) results will be much much lower. This is how i got two t-birdy systems set up and both are overclcocked..
Have fun

Thats pretty close to what mine run, A little hotter yet when my computer desk door is closed. And this is with watercooling. Seems very stable and fast though. I will be tearing it all apart one of these days and set the cooling system back up to see if I can bring the temps down a bit though one of these days when I get time.
