My room is quite humid and hot, even with the windows thrown wide open and takes a healthy shot of sun. its like a desert some days and temps can soar quite alot.
Im on a CM 690 Basic 2 with 3 120mm fans for the case and recently upgraded my stock intel cooler as temps were getting too high to a Hyper 212 evo cooler(numerous bsods and sub 80-90s when gaming). Thankfully the new cooler brought it back down to 36ish-40ish while idling on cooler days, but some days it can rise substantially.
I have another side of the heatsink fan that i've bought a typhoon for to mount.. but im holding off for haswell for a one shot upgrade.
It may be a non issue but i want to prolong the life of the com when in such a hot and humid environment cos i had some parts like the Gtx-480 die on me and PSU cos of heat issues before.
I'm not a O/Cer ( preparing for haswell/LGA-1150 mobo to upgrade) but i do game for long periods (BF3)
What sort of cooling would you all reccomend for my computer?
Im on an i7 870( P55A-G55A mobo) with a gtx-670 as my gpu if it helps.
I have a CM690II basic case which offers alot of cooling(fan) mounts.
Adding two 140mm top mount exhaust fans would aid in removing excess heat.
Experimented with a 120mm fan as side intake = didn't like all the excess dust(no filter).
Moved the fan inside on hdd cage inline with gpu dropped temps 1C while adding no dust.
Btw the Hyper 212 EVO is a good unit no need to change it imo.
