I've had a cooler master Elite 330 for about a year. Ever since I had it most of my components were running some what hot. My CPU was usually 45C ideal. GPU was in the 70's. 85 max under load. But recently my GPU has been reaching up to 106C when playing games like Dragon Age and CoD MW. I have no idea why it's running so hot.
So I decided to just buy a better case. To get better temps I bought a NZXT Tempest. And now all of temps are pretty much exactly the same as before. CPU is still in the 40-50's. GPU still reaches 106C under load. And my HDD's still get into the low 40's. The reason I got a new case was because I thought my CM 330 had bad airflow. But since everything is pretty much the same as before, I have no idea what to do.
My main specs are
a Sapphire 4850
Intel e7200 (not overclocked) with a Freezer 7 Pro
Gigabyte p45 motherboard
3 western digital HDD's
Here is a picture of my NZXT case now. I'm new to building PC's so my cable management skills aren't the best. There are 2 intake fans in the front, and 1 on the side. 2 exhaust on the top, and 1 in the back. http://i48.tinypic.com/281y3kl.jpg
Should I just return the case or what? I don't know what I'm supposed to do to lower these temps.
I have the 2 intake fans in the front, and the 2 exhaust on the top on a fan controller setup to around 60% fan speed. And when the 4850 reaches up to 106C thats already when I have the fan speed set to 85%. I usually set it to 40% when Im not playing anything.
I have the cpu fan blowing to the exhaust fan in the back.
