hey i was wondering, why does the fan on the side of my CPU doesnt work? i just noticed that recently. and thats the only fan of my cpu. i dont really know where it was connected (coz im not the one who assembled this one.) but i think it was for the hard drive, is it possible?
man, i just noticed that problem when i was playing a game (Prototype) and it crashes whenever i start playin it like after loading the save file, it crashes a few seconds later. so i checked my video card ( Nvdia GeForce 9500GT) i dont know how i can see its temperature from a sort of a hardware properties window so i opened my case, and touched it. i dont know, but yeah, its hot so i thought that was the problem. so i let my comp rest for like 2 hours and the game works fine again.
now, i'm plannin on buying a fan for the rear case, which one is better? coz ive read that on a comment on youtube that there are fans for air intake and for the other way around. so, uhm which one is better for cooling?
