Idle temps mean nothing. You are bring in air into the case that is barely above ambient. Lets see the component temps after you run prime95 and furmark for a while. I bet you melt the paint off the side panel.

I run folding@home all day every day and have for years. I've had zero hardware failures.

sure I can run some stuff man no worries. I'd have to buy future mark to cycle it over and over tho... maybe one of their older versions is cheap?
I'll check out prime 95 later... watchin the kid while the missus rests.

maybe I should just try folding heh... been ages since I set it up tho.

been folding since about 10pm last night until 10am today and will continue to fold until tonight sometime.



gpus 48c
NB 51c
cpu cores 44c

all this on a triple rad with 6x 1200rpm fans. This is still far better than air cooling IMO and I'm quite satisfied with the temps. Previously my NB would overheat or become unstable with the stock MOBO cooling and this overclock

I have a 780 ACX blowing hot air around in my case as well as a triple rad at the top of my case pulling in air from outside the case. My CPU temps are better this way, GPU is fine, and I haven't had any problems with my mobo/SSD temps either.

After reading all this, the only thing I learned is that squee is a wee bit ignorant...

Oh really? Did you take a look at clshades vrm temps in the post 2 above your useless vitrol?
128c OUCH! The defense rests.
Doesn't look like he was gpu folding either. The clocks are way down on the vid card.

Anyhow, you guys do whatever you want, lol. Me, I'm going to stick to common sense and the laws of thermodynamics.

Interesting reading here , The way I see it (being an air guy ) is both methods will work just fine .
If blowing air into the case gives you substantially better temps then I would have to say that your case is lacking free area for the air to circulate through .Exhausting air through the rads out of the case should not have much temp difference to the push air through the rads into the case method IF you have enough air coming into the case to begin with . If you have enough relief (supply) air coming into the case then the internal components shouldn't be able to raise the temp of the ambient air more than a degree or 2 (of coursed mileage may vary) Basically if you have 6 fans exhausting 30 cfm each then you need at least 180 cfm coming in . (180 cfm @ 400 feet per minute = a 9" diameter pipe )

His VRMs are definitely not 128C. 128C is just is what is shown if it can't read anything. The VRMs would blow up well before reaching those temperatures.
