Hey all its me again lol. Hey I have a TALL Thermaltake case and i modded it I think tooo much. Can you have 2 many fans? I have a Phenom x2 550 and a nvidia 9800gt and my case gets HOT! So I installed the following fans lol ( dont make fun of me please lol)

*Internal*
1 80mm stock cpu cooler
2 80mm fans in the rear blowing in on the cpu
2 80mm fans in the front blowing on 2 hdd's
1 80mm fan on the top for the heat to be pushed out.
1 120mm fan mounted on my 450 watt Ps
2 80mm fans mounted on a pci type fan thing blowing down on the 9800gt
2 80mm fans mounted on a pci type fan thing blowing up on the 9800gt

*Modded Side Panel*
2 120mm fans mounted on the side panel blowing in on the video and cpu
1 80mm mounted on the bottom of the panel for heat to escape

what.... 105c?

Makes no sense... you do realize that if that were true then your cpu would have flicked off long ago, right?

hehe...should have said that, you mixed celcius and farenheit in a single post...

Your case has a terrible arrangement of fans.... You need to organize them better. Remember that heat rises.
