Case cooling

Hi All
This is my second post.I recently built up my first gaming computer.
Specs:am3+motherboard
4gb ram
amd phenomII x4 945 @3.00 ghz
gtx550ti
generic 450w psu
and a normal cheapest computer store case.
Ok so my problem:my gtx 550ti(stock overclocked to normal 970mhz) reaches 75degrees when playing cod 4.I am worried,is that ok for that card?My case has 5 fans:1 in front,2 top,1 bottom,1 back.The front one is blows cool air in case,Back is exhaust.Now the bottom one is just below motherboard and harddrives.Currently it is in exhaust.The 2 top ones blow cool air in the case.
Thanks all answers are appreciated. :bounce:

  1. Ah... close!

    Top and bottom = Intake
    Rear and two top = Exhaust

    You are probably bringing in cool from the front, then immediately sending it out the bottom exhaust fan. Probably the same thing with the top / rear fans. ....the airflow isn't going from front-to-back across your components. Make the change above and let the forum know if you still have temp issues.
  2. Swapping the fans round is a cheaper option to explore first, free is the best price for a mod

    Don't forget about swapping the bottom one around to be an intake fan.

    Yes. Your GTX 550ti already has a cooler, however there are plenty of aftermarket (better) options like The Great Randini was getting at.
