Boy I don,t know what the trick is but I put a 80mm on my FOP38 and the temp went up 4*. I put a 42.5cfm sunon on it+ 4 new case fans (3) 42.5cfm
intakes and (1) 42cfm slot cooler for an exhaust and a 42.5 cfm exhaust in the upper rear plus the ps fan. I took the 80mm off the cpu and put the delta back on and it dropped 3* but still running a couple of degrees warmer with the added fans,42*c right now with only the OS running and on the net. I think I'm going to strap an air conditioning unit on top and call it quits. what's the deal ?Am I doing something wrong?

Should I try to get the temp lower or leave it alone?Was thinking about ordering the swiftech 462-a but having second thoughts about spending the money now.
