Ok i have a compaq presario

Temps are as follows at half load

CPU 60c
MB 42c
HD 1 43c
HD 2 37c

My computer has only a CPU fan and an exhaust fan

My exhaust fan runs at 1100 then steps up to 2000

Do i need an intake?

More about : 42c 108f case intake exhaust

you cant fit an intake in. its a prebuild PC. crappy parts. you have nothing to worry about.

No offence asshole but when i am getting 80c full load on a pentium 4 550 i dont really fancy spending a grand on a new pc so why dont you stop trying to be smart and go fuck yourself ;)

People like you are the scum of our society. You are a freakin red neck sitting next to a lame ass Compaq making thread like this one sigh.

Oh, might i add. DONT MAKE 2 THREADS ABOUT THE SAME TOPIC.

Beyond that. I request no one help this assh0le.

i dont know what your compaq case looks like but you could probably put some bumbers onthe bottom that raise it up from the desk a little and then cut an air intake into the bottom of the case in the area where the front intake would normally be. that would keep the case looking nice to.
Another option assuming the compaq parts would fit would be to buy a new case and transfering everything to it. Agian this is assuming the parts would fit (they most likely wont)

WTF.
all he said was you can't add a fan and that you have NOTHING to worry about.
A quick google will confirm this....

On the topic HP/Compaq run computers just in specs to keep it quieter(i have yet to see one get unstable as a result). If it is not unstable i would not worry. Also the P4 will clock it self down if it feels it is too hot.

make sure it is all clean in there and as long as it is stable don't worry.

Thanks it is a standard compaq presario case as used on all current models. Micro atx with a silver power button in the model . It is an SR Series. I think the hot air build up is just way too much in there. Is there any way of attaching one to the holey metal inside with cable ties?
July 23, 2006 8:31:38 PM

i dont know if cable ties would work but maybe you could superglue a fan in there(no guarantees on that). I wouldnt recommand putting a fan in that way though but since you have holes in the front of the case maybe your exhaust fan just isnt good enough. Buy a better fan for the exhaust to replace the compaq case fan(ask around the forum for a good fan). try it out if your temps are better than your problems solved. If not you could superglue that compaq fan to work as an air intake(if thats even the problem). You shouldnt need an intake fan if your exhaust fan is strong enough. I have a system with the following specs(homebuilt though):
P4 3.2 ghz northwood(much cooler than prescoot) stock intel cooler 35 idle/ 43 load
2 hard drives
1 optical drive
geforce fx 5950
sound blaster audigy
two 80mm rear exhaust fans(antec one speed fans) plus the fan on my psu

I have no intake fan and in a case full of holes you shouldnt either

If these fixes dont lower your temps dont worry about it. its prebuilt and has a warranty dont do anything stupid that would ruin a stable pc and viod the warranty

metal chassis is full of small 2.5ish mm diameter holes but when the case facia goes over it leaves only slits at the bottom away from the holes

I can think of at least three ways to improve the airflow/temps in your case... wait make that four.

But I'm not going to tell you.

After your flame on Pengwin (although distinctly lacking in wit) I think your time would be better spent in anger management classes than on this forum. The guy knows what hes talking about, just because it wasn't what you wanted to hear doesn't make him wrong.

Omid: How come ur ambients are so low? mine is 42 c??

Person1: I presume you mean your idle temps are 42C.

Anyway, I don't think you need that big a case to run a Ninja. It fits into all the cases I have here (from cheapo no-name to Lian-Li)

Omid: yea but i dont mean the cpu i mean the northbridge

my cpu is idle 66 load 70


...exactly..so if anyone actually understands "red neck" let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Clearly you have issues identifying grammar such as question marks as you missed out all 3.

Actually tomorrow those P4 550's value will decrease. Going from ~$290 to ~$150, both USD. Enjoy your Prescotts.

Yup. Up until the point that 1000USD runs out.
