ok, ill try to get short and down to the point. i run a amd 1.2ghz in a full tower case. i have 3 fans blowing air out, and 2 blowing air in. i have a delta 6800rpm fan with a GW heatsink and a copper shim on my cpu. my mobo has temp under the cpu, and it runs 123F w/ the case panels on and 118F w/ the panels off, and thats just downloading. temp getts higher running unral tournament and my pc crashes over 127F. i was thinking about getting a 85watt peltier kit from waterchill.com, and the GW cak-38 HS to replace the GW alum. HS i have. Do you think that would drop the temp? would i need a bigger Psu ( i wanna get a 430, but i might get the E530 psu)? i need advice please. i run round ide cables also. so i dont really know why its so hot. all the other devices run pretty cool. thanks in advance.
