I have an AMD Athlon 2500+ CPU running at stock speed (for now). It is topped by a Thermalright SK-7 sink and a Panaflo L1A 80mm fan. CPU temps hit about 40C with no load.
My PSU is an Antec Truepower 330. My GPU is a Nvidea GF4 4200 (stock speed).
My case has a side fan (80mm) and a rear fan (80mm). I recently unplugged my rear fan, as it was fairly noisy and I got tired of listening to it. Do you believe it is OK to unplug the side fan too? I have no front intake.
I think I'd keep both fans! If they're noisy, try wiring them up for 7v by connecting the black fan wire to a red power wire, and the red fan wire to a yellow power wire.
