I upgraded my Acer Aspire x1200 to a 500w power supply and a nvidia geforce 9800gt 1gb video card and put it into a bigger compaq case. my temps at idle are running hot. Im using Speedfan to monitor my temps,
GPU is at 71 c, temp 1 55 c .

Im not sure why its getting hot and what i can do to keep it cool. Ive even tried putting a big fan on it and have it blow in the side. Ive cleaned it out real well.

Place your finger on the base of the cpu heatsink. If it's relatively cool, then your temp monitoring software isn't accurate.
