I thought that if all my backplates were removed and used a fan to blow on my hsf the temperature would be lower. Wrong, by sealing everything back up and using the fan to draw air out, I have lost about 2 C. And that is with the bus notched up another 2Mz. It's so easy for us newbies to get it all wrong.

Wrong attitude. You just learned how to get it right. ;D

"Experience is the best teacher, but often the most expensive also."

it depends. For some people, running without a case on cools better. For others its worse. The better the airflow in the case, the worse the case will do open because you ruin that airflow.
