While running prime95 or sisoft sandra my CPU temp is 44c and my MB temp is 28c. I have two 80mm fans in the case, 1 blowing in (front), 1 blowing out (back). Do you think it might lower those temps if I replaced the 80mm with 92mm fans?

Thank you
At what room temperature does your motherboard run at 28C? That would tell you whether you would benefit from more through-case airflow. While you're at it, what CPU are you using, at what speed, at what core voltage, to yield 44C running a stressing program?

I'll take a look at your response in the morning and give you my informed advice. Gotta hit the sack now.
