My System Specs

Default Not really a new build but..........

So as some of you know I got my new case today (CM Storm Sniper BE)

Well I just got it up and running and all I can say is OMG. Its awesome

Also Since I was tearing everything out of my old case I took everything apart cleaned put back in. wires are all tucked away in wire looms (black of course....i even used black zip ties )

Anyways My system temps before the switch on my old case(Transformer Case-Sunbeam provide the best acrylic case pc for gaming and modding) was about 45-47 idle and 80-85 with prime95 during a 12 hour run.

what I changed was new case, replaced stock cpu heatsink/fan with a Hyper 212+ and added another fan to the case (120mm on the bottom)

Well as of right now my idle/basic temps are 21-25 idle.

I am gonna do a prime tonight to see what the max will be and let ya know tomorrow.

Right now my e6600 is OC'ed at about 2.9 with everything else at stock vcore etc.

When I get some time I am gonna see how high I can get it.

Anyways thanks to the info on this site/advice from everyone here I have found new life in this 4yr old system.
