Hmm... Does this sound right?

In my old case I had a CPU temp of 49c (yes! that high!)

Now, I have a new case, a dual fan Enermax PSU, and two case fans (front and back positions)...

Now my temp is 43-44c... Does this sound right?

My HSF is a GlobalWin Copper series CBK-58... Might change the fan, using a fan converter thingy so I can slap an 80mm on it (!)

Already hacked out that grill thing you originally have on the back of the case where the fan goes... air gets shifted loads now!

The air from the PSU fan is hot... well, warm... compared to the other exhaust fan...

I have three fans left to put in... Should I put two in the top exhausting the air, and the other one in the side as an intake? I think they have different cfm's, one is different to two cheaper ones, so should i put that different one in the side? And what do you think the drop in temp would be once I slapped the CPU fan to a 80mm, and added those other fans?
