My System Specs

CPU temps don't rise above 41C under load. What a difference from having my computer crash because the cooling system couldn't handle BF3 or even the CPU test in 3D Mark.

My next question now: I'd like install a fan at the top vent on my case (Thermaltake V4). However, I have clearence issues. A 120x120x25 fan contacts the Ram and the small MB power cord. Is there such a thing as a low profile fan? Say, no deeper than 12.5mm?

NCIX.com - Buy Scythe KAZE-JYUNI Slip Stream Slim 120MM 12MM Cooling Fan 1600RPM 28.8DB 38CFM - Scythe - SY1212SL12M - in Canada

This one will do the trick. 12mm.
