Case/CPU cooling

Hey guys,

I am looking for case fans and a cpu cooler. My system specs are phenom ii x2 555 stock. i will not be overclocking or core-unlocking the cpu. My case is a plane old lian li black case with only one case fan in the front. Radeon HD5750 for Graphics I have a 400w silver stone psu powering it all.

The building the computer is in stays between 70 and 85, and cooling the building is not an option. i am not against the idea of placing a box fan on the floor pointing at the comp.

I am looking for a better cpu fan, and possibly case fans as well. This is just an every day daily use/slight gaming build. If you have better ideas for lowering the temp inside the comp please feel free to pitch in.

Currently the cpu/hdd are running between 45 at idle and 50-58 at full load. This is too hot for me. Please help

More about case cooling
  1. You can get this assuming your RAM is not extra tall.
    What case fans can you add to your case? 120mm?
  2. With a processor like that, and most others if you're not overclocking, you'll have no need at all for a non-stock CPU cooler.
    Your temperatures are absolutely fine. What do you mean by "too hot"? You could do better than that, and case fans would help more than a cpu fan if you insist on doing so, but you really don't need to worry about those temperatures.
  3. What if I decided to use core unlocking to unlock it to a dual or tri core cpu to run more virtual machines?
  4. Pretty much all scythe fans work really good. It depends on how much noise you want. Also a Cooler Master 212 would work perfectly fine with your setup. Just make sure you have fans on it with some power or it won't be that effective
