Pst deluxe v2 cpu cooler test

Hello,
i have a 975 cpu chip with a termaltake all copper v1 cooler.the layout of the board forces me to install the cooler where it blows out the towards the back of the case which creats backpressue inside the case with idle temp of 45 degrees celsius. is there a cooler that will blow towards the top of the case ?
the case is a lian li pc-17.

  1. you have a 975? get liquid cooling?
  2. go big or go home buddy! you bought a pretty pricey cpu but seemed to skimp on the cooler? plus most cases should have an exhaust port near the back of the case near the cpu heat sink for that purpose.



    there are several options u can take.

    1. new case, and keep the fan/heat sink
    2. get yourself something like the v8 and point it up? any fan that will point up i guess would work for you

    3. water cool + a case that will allow for it

    If you contact tech support at any of the top end HS manufacturers, they will tell you to install the HS with fans blowing toward the rear, exactly as you have it. Prolimatech for example, recorded a 1-2C difference blowing to rear rather than up....of course, my luck, that e-mail arrived after I had installed it blowing up as "logic" would have it.

    If you're getting back pressure, my guess is your case and / or case fans are inadequate for the job.

    You should be picking a HS from the top 3 or 4 here:

  5. on a 775 mb best results for a thermaltake v1 copper cooler is to blow air out the top of case. on a 1336 mb you cant do this. i have been looking at air coolers and liquid cooling for two weeks. i am not a pc noob. been building pc's since the xt's came out. thats 24 years. i will keep looking
    for thev correct cooler. thank you .
