Its good. I built someone a PC using that case recently its not bad at all but when you are looking at idle temps I don't think it will made more than maybe 1C difference (no case would). Anyway idle temps don't mean much its load temps you need to worry about.
Yeah, the theme for this upgrade was pretty much "cheap and cheerful" even though I ended up spending way too much money anyways.
I am quite impressed with the case, the only thing that annoyed me was the fact that the USB 3.0s on the front panel don't have the right header attached so you have to buy a USB 3.0 female to 20-pin adapter (but nothing I have is USB 3.0 so I suppose I'm complaining for the sake of complaining)...
One of the positives about living in Scotland, during the winter months the house is basically one massive CPU cooler haha.
Thanks for the help guys, I know this was sort of a redundant thread of me displaying my complete ignorance, but I appreciate your feedback..
Yeah, kind of an annoyance (would obviously be more annoying for anyone that had hardware that utilised USB 3.0).
I'll probably get around to buying an adapter at some point in the future. I don't have anything that uses USB 3.0 at the moment, if I'm right in saying it's mainly external hard drives/flash disks that use 3.0 due to higher data-transfer?
Just realised actually that my motherboard has a BIOS POST Code/CPU temperature indicator built into it and it's reading a different temp than the Core Temp progam is, sitting at about 27/28 degrees.
Just one last question... Should I be more inclined to believe the temperature that the motherboard is displaying rather than what Core Temp tells me?
(Sorry for posting another reply but I can't edit my original message for some reason).
After reading through my motherboard's manual it says that the CPU temperature displayed on the indicator is in hexadecimal format which after using a converter gives me 39/40c... which is just about room temperature which is what you said it should be sitting at in the first place...
