Please read the Cooling subforum more, and THEN post.

Your questions will be answered better if you are better educated before posting them.

As for the original question, how about some more information....fan type, temps, overclock, motherboard...etc

well idk. my comp is REALLY hot. i installed them on the back of the comp. blowing out wards

generally that is the correct direction... and cpu heatsinks shouldn't be touched when the computer is on anyway. download MBM5 and tell us what CPU temps are.

Zatrix, you need to stop labeling every post you make urgent - its a form of trolling. It is a waste of resources and time to do so... Especially when you have questions that are of no immediate value - For gods sakes you are asking about fans that have been installed for a year - how could this be urgent in anyway? Your system obviously isn't going to die an hour from now.

Everyone would appreciate this ending, including me most of all. :D

Your CPU temp isn't bad at all, but what CPU do you have? I'm guessing you took these temps when your system was at idle, its more helpful to know your temps under full load. Full system settings?

104 = 40C which is completely normal for an idle temp.

Your system is in no danger, but your case temps could definetly be improved if you would have one fan blowing in, and one fan blowing out.

1) how on earth can it be urgent now if its been running without problems for a year...?

2) Your temps are fine, you arent supposed to touch your components when the system is running....obviously 104 seems too much if ur aiming for a system you can stroke.

3) Go for a suck/blow configuration, try to get roughly the same amount being brought into the case from the front as is being blown out at the back.

What do you mean "find a front intake"? Your case may have an area in the front where mounting a fan would be possible, it would likely be found near the bottom. What kind of a case do you have?
